Full Proposal Deadline(s) (due by 5 p.m. proposer’s local time): May 20, 2015
Anticipated Type of Award: Standard Grant or Continuing Grant or Cooperative Agreement
Estimated Number of Awards: 27 to 35
About 27-35 projects will be funded, subject to availability of funds.
Anticipated Funding Amount: $26,500,000
Up to $26,500,000 will be invested in proposals submitted to this solicitation, subject to availability of funds. Projects will be funded in the range of $200,000 to a maximum of $500,000 per year in total funding for 3 to 4 years of support.
Proposals submitted in response to the BIGDATA solicitation must focus on the development of the scientific discovery processes, novel systems, novel computational, statistical, or mathematical techniques and technologies, or novel theoretical analyses or experimental evaluations of techniques for big data and knowledge management and analytics.
The Critical Techniques and Technologies for Advancing Foundations and Applications of Big Data Science & Engineering (BIGDATA) program invites proposals in two categories:
1) »Foundations » (F): those that focus on the development of novel techniques, or novel theoretical analysis (including statistics and probability) or experimental evaluation of techniques, that are broadly applicable; and
2) »Innovative Applications » (IA): those that focus on the development of innovative techniques, methodologies, and technologies for specific application areas or innovative adaptations of existing techniques, methodologies and technologies to new application areas.
Before preparing a proposal in response to this BIGDATA solicitation, applicants are strongly urged to consult the list of related solicitations available at: http://www.nsf.gov/cise/news/bigdata.jsp and consult the respective NSF program officers listed in them should those solicitations be more appropriate.
