New NSF Core Program: Foundations of Emerging Technologies

NSF has announced the creation of a new core program within CCF, called Foundations of Emerging Technologies (FET). The FET core program joins the existing three core programs within CCF: Algorithmic Foundations (AF), Communications and Information Foundations (CIF), and Software Hardware Foundations (SHF).

FET aims to enable radical innovations across all areas traditionally supported by CCF, including the theory, algorithms, software, hardware, and architecture of computing and communication systems, through research at the intersection of computing and biological systems, nanoscale science and engineering, quantum information science, and other nascent, yet promising, areas. Of note to theorists, research in quantum computing and computational biology, formerly considered across these three core programs, is now addressed by the FET program.

FET is accepting proposals through the CCF Core Programs solicitation NSF 18-568 this fall.
