ACI Solicitation Webinar

About the series

The Division of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure enables science and engineering research and education by developing, creating, and supporting secure, advanced, global cyberinfrastructure (CI).  These goals are achieved through a number of cross-cutting program solicitations.  We will provide information on several recently posted solicitations, including Data Infrastructure Building Blocks (DIBBs), Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation (SI2), and Petascale Computing Resource Allocations (PRAC), Cybersecurity Innovation for Cyberinfrastructure (CICI) and Learning and Workforce Development (LWD) (to include discussion of NSF’s CAREER, CRII, REU Sites, and NRT programs). 

On Thursday March 3, 2016 from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM EST, this webinar will cover the elements of each solicitation, including objectives, award types, and submission requirements.  There will be a question and answer session following the discussion of each program solicitation.
