NSF seeks input on updated cyberinfrastructure needs

News for Researchers

Posted March 3, 2017 by Ashley Washburn

The National Science Foundation invites input from Nebraska’s research community to inform its strategy and plans for investments in advanced cyberinfrastructure that will fuel cutting-edge science and engineering research over the next decade and beyond.

The deadline to respond to NSF’s request for information is April 5.

In 2009, NSF developed agency-wide programmatic initiatives on cyberinfrastructure, set forth in Cyberinfrastructure for 21st Century Science and Engineering (CIF21). In response to rapidly advancing technology and new scientific challenges, NSF is updating its vision in order to support advanced cyberinfrastructure that institutions are unlikely to deploy on their own, and to encourage innovative use of cyberinfrastructure. To account for the future needs and priorities of scientists in diverse disciplines, the agency encourages input from researchers in all fields of science, engineering and education.

Individuals or groups can provide feedback via this submission website, which asks respondents to outline current research challenges and the cyberinfrastructure necessary to address them. For more information, contact William Miller, science adviser in the NSF Division of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure.
