NSF Solicitaition in Engineered Complex SystemsSeptember 18, 2009
On September 18, the National Science Foundation (NSF) posted a solicitation for proposals on Building Engineered Complex Systems. This is a joint effort of the NSF Division of Mathematical Sciences and the Directorate for Engineering.
The purpose of the program is to provide "seed funding" for projects to develop a theoretical basis for complex systems. The goal is to develop formal methods for the design or synthesis of reslient engineered complex systems.
This is a joint program between math and engineering. At least one co-prinicipal investigator (co-PI) must be a mathematician and at least one co-PI an engineer.
Details on how to submit a proposal may be found in the solicitation.
