Important information for proposers

All proposals must be submitted in accordance with the requirements specified in this funding opportunity and in the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) that is in effect for the relevant due date to which the proposal is being submitted. It is the responsibility of the proposer to ensure that the proposal meets these requirements. Submitting a proposal prior to a specified deadline does not negate this requirement.


This program supports fundamental research in areas where advanced algorithmic and computational techniques are coupled with mathematical methods of analysis. The specific program areas include computer graphics, computational geometry and topology, symbolic and algebraic computation, computational logic and automated deduction, computationally oriented numerical analysis, and mathematical optimization. The program encourages the integration of numeric, symbolic, geometric, and graphic techniques into problem-solving environments to support computational science and engineering. The program also supports advanced computational techniques aimed at modeling and simulation of physical processes, the design and construction of high quality mathematical computing software for scientific research, and experimental implementation when it is integral part of the research. Innovative applications of advanced computational and graphic techniques in scientific and engineering applications, manufacturing and design, proof support systems, prototypic and design verification are also welcome.
