Dynamics, Control and Cognition (DCC)

Important information for proposers

Any proposal submitted in response to this funding opportunity should be submitted in accordance with the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) that is in effect for the relevant due date to which the proposal is being submitted. The NSF PAPPG is regularly revised and it is the responsibility of the proposer to ensure that the proposal meets the requirements specified in this solicitation and the applicable version of the PAPPG. Submitting a proposal prior to a specified deadline does not negate this requirement.


The Dynamics, Controls and Cognition (DCC) Cluster supports fundamental research on the modeling, analysis, diagnostics, measurement, and control of dynamical systems, including but not limited to those involving physical interaction between human and embodied artificial intelligences. Support is expected to lead to new theories, methods, and engineering applications with broad societal impacts.  Interdisciplinary, convergent proposals are welcome.  Proposals of all sizes will therefore be considered as justified by the project description. Investigators are encouraged to discuss their ideas with DCC program directors well in advance of submission.
