Proposals for the NSF program on Critical Techniques and Technologies for Advancing Big Data Science & Engineering (BIGDATA) are due June 9, 2014. Proposals involving theorists (ideally in collaboration with more applied researchers) are particularly encouraged this year. Grants will range from $200,000 to $500,000 over 3-4 years. Program director Bala Kalyanasundaram (firstname.lastname@example.org) can answer questions about the program, particularly with respect to TCS work.
As part of its new Brain Initiative, NSF will also be funding Early Concept Grants for Exploratory Research (EAGERs) for work with the potential to transform our ability to analyze brain function underlying behavioral and cognitive processes. Interested researchers should submit 2-page summaries of research ideas by May 1, 2014, and then may subsequently be invited to submit full proposals.
