Message 1: NSF Cyberinfrastructure Solicitation: Call for Proposals
Date: 15-Mar-2006
From: Joan Maling <jmalingnsf.gov>
Subject: NSF Cyberinfrastructure Solicitation: Call for Proposals

Proposals for NSF's CI-TEAM Solicitation Due June 5, 2006


The National Science Foundation just released the FY06 Cyberinfrastructure
Training, Education, Advancement, and Mentoring for Our 21st Century Workforce
(CI-TEAM) solicitation. Proposals are sought that position the national science
and engineering community to engage in research and education activities
promoting and leveraging cyberinfrastructure. CI-TEAM awards will:

- Prepare current and future generations of scientists, engineers, and educators
to use, support, deploy, develop, and design cyberinfrastructure; and

- Foster inclusion in cyberinfrastructure activities of diverse groups of people
and organizations, with particular emphasis on traditionally underrepresented

The FY06 expanded CI-TEAM solicitation seeks two types of project proposals. One
type of proposal, the Demonstration Project, is exploratory in nature and may be
somewhat limited in scope and scale. Demonstration Projects have the potential
to serve as pathfinders to effective larger-scale implementation activities in
the future. The other project type, the Implementation Project, is generally
larger in scope or scale and draws on prior experience with the activities or
the teams proposed. Implementation Projects are expected to deliver sustainable
learning and workforce development activities that complement ongoing NSF
investment in cyberinfrastructure.

Both types of projects consist of collaborations with expertise in multiple
disciplines and partnerships between academic institutions of higher learning,
secondary schools, government, industry, professional societies, other
not-for-profit organizations, and international partners, as appropriate. Other
key features of CI-TEAM projects involve leveraging existing or current
development efforts in cyberinfrastructure technologies, open software
standards, execution and evaluation plans, etc. Following merit review of the
proposals received, NSF expects to select for support 8 to 16 Demonstration
Projects at up to $250,000 total each and 6 to 8 Implementation Projects at up
to $1,000,000 total each that together constitute a rich portfolio of
cyberinfrastructure-related workforce development activities.

For more information see the full CI-TEAM solicitation, NSF 06-548. Information
about many other funding opportunities for science and cyberinfrastructure can
be found on the NSF Web site.
