Advanced Computing Systems & Services: Adapting to the Rapid Evolution of Science and Engineering Research
https://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=503148
Intent Deadline: June 24, 2019
Application Deadline: November 5, 2019

The intent of this solicitation is to request proposals from organizations willing to serve as service providers within the NSF Innovative High-Performance Computing program to provide advanced cyberinfrastructure capabilities and/or services in production operations to support the full range of computational- and data-intensive research across all of science and engineering. The current solicitation is intended to complement previous NSF investments in advanced computational infrastructure by provisioning resources in two categories: 1) Category I, Capacity Systems: production computational resources maximizing the capacity provided to support the broad range of computation and data analytics needs in science and engineering research; and 2) Category II, Innovative Prototypes/Testbeds: innovative forward-looking capabilities deploying novel technologies, architectures, usage modes, etc. and exploring new target applications, methods, and paradigms for science and engineering discoveries. 

An organization may submit only one proposal in response to this solicitation. 

If you are interested in developing a proposal in response to this funding opportunity, please complete a notification of intent to submit by June 24, 2019. For more information regarding the internal selection process, visit http://research.unl.edu/limited-submissions-funding-programs/.

Critical-Zone Collaborative Network
https://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=505628
Intent Deadline: June 24, 2019
Application Deadline: December 2, 2019

The National Science Foundation seeks proposals to establish an adaptive and responsive research network that supports investigations of the Earth's Critical Zone. This network will consist of two components that will work together to advance knowledge, education, and outreach in this convergent science: 1) Thematic Clusters of fixed or temporary locations will conduct basic research on significant, overarching scientific questions concerning the structure, function, and processes of the Critical Zone. These U.S.-based Clusters could include existing observatories engaged in collecting environmental data, other monitoring locations that have been in operation for extended periods of time, and new sites that will support the scientific goals of the Cluster. 2) A Coordinating Hub that will oversee the compatibility and archiving of the data resulting from the Thematic Clusters, coordinate outreach and community-building activities, support the use of network facilities by outside researchers, and plan for infrastructure needs of the network. 

An organization may submit a total of four proposals to this competition: one for the Coordinating Hub and three for the Thematic Clusters. If you are interested in applying to one of these components, please complete a notification of intent to submit (see below) and indicate which component you are interested in applying to. 

If you are interested in developing a proposal in response to this funding opportunity, please complete a notification of intent to submit by June 24, 2019. For more information regarding the internal selection process, visit http://research.unl.edu/limited-submissions-funding-programs/.
