[PVS] DCOSS'09 NSF Government Funding Session




DCOSS 2009, the International Conference on Distributed Computing in 
Sensor Systems, in Marina Del Rey, CA, is happy to announce the 
following special session that will occur during the conference:

      Government Funding Session: National Science Foundation

      Anita J. La Salle
      Program Director, Division of Computer and Network Systems (CNS)
      Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering 
(CISE)
      National Science Foundation (NSF)
      alasalle --AT-- nsf (dot) gov

      5:00pm - 6:30pm
      Tuesday, June 9, 2008

NSF's CNS Division supports research and education activities that 
address new computing and networking technologies and explore new ways 
to enhance existing technologies. The Division seeks to develop a better 
understanding of the fundamental properties of computer and network 
systems and to create better abstractions and tools for designing, 
building, analyzing, and measuring future systems. The Division also 
supports the computing infrastructure needed for experimental computer 
science and it coordinates cross-CISE and cross-NSF activities. In 
addition to research proposal solicitations, CNS also considers 
proposals focusing on education, workforce development, and other 
activities that are of general interest to the CISE community and that 
are not covered by other NSF solicitations.

This session will cover current CISE and other NSF programs of 
importance to researchers in trustworthy distributed computing and 
sensor systems such as: Computer Systems Research (CSR), Trustworthy 
Computing (TC), CISE Computing Research Infrastructure (CRI), 
Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), Networking Technology and Systems (NeTS), 
Data Intensive Computing, Network Science and Engineering (NetSE), 
Cyber-Enabled Discovery and Innovation (CDI), Expeditions in Computing 
(Expeditions), Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI), Broadening 
Participation in Computing (BPC), and CISE Pathways to Revitalized 
Undergraduate Education in Computing (CPATH). New modes of funding, 
research opportunities, and directions of these programs will be described.

A Q&A session will follow the formal presentation.
