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.


The program will support interdisciplinary research to improve the fundamental capabilities of computer and information sciences and engineering by incorporating insights from either biological systems or quantum foundations or both. To achieve this improvement, fundamental research is needed towards the unification of information science across computer science, physics, biology, and engineering. Expanding efforts in interdisciplinary research areas that are at the interface of information science and technology with the fields of biology, chemistry, engineering, physics, and computer science will lead to better understanding in all areas of science. This will increase the ability to develop future information technologies that are very critical to the economy and society at the national and international level. Group proposals representing multiple disciplines will receive priority but single investigator proposals that are cross-disciplinary will also be considered.
