Message 2: RESEARCH FUNDING ANNOUNCEMENT: Research in Intelligent Systems

Date: Fri, 16 Jun 2000 12:18:37 -0400

Subject: RESEARCH FUNDING ANNOUNCEMENT: Research in Intelligent Systems

NASA is soliciting proposals from the Computational Sciences research
community for new and innovative research, applied research, and pilot
projects, which will advance information systems technology required
by future NASA missions. In particular, NRA2-37143 solicits truly
novel approaches to address the need for advancements in fundamental
technologies, methods, and processes in four areas: Automated
Reasoning, Intelligent Data Understanding, Revolutionary Computing,
and Human-Centered Computing. Human-Centered Computing (HCC) is an
interdisciplinary effort to design and model entire work environments
in which teams of humans and networks of machines are effectively
integrated. Better models of human cognitive abilities -- attention,
concentration, memory, conceptual structure, decision-making,
learning, and higher-level perception -- will provide the basis for
the principled design of computational capabilities. Research in
design tool software, human information flow modeling, cognitive
task/work analysis, decision making under stress, psychophysiological
reactivity, multi-person performance modeling, and work process
modeling is needed.

Participation in this NRA is open to U.S. citizens in industry,
educational institutions, nonprofit organizations, and U.S. Government
agencies. The range of awards is expected to be from $200K per year
for individual PI or small team research, to $1M per year for larger
team or collaborative efforts.

Step 1 Proposals Due: 1:30 pm, PDT, July 11, 2000
Step 2 Proposals Due: 2 months after notification
