[Computational Complexity] Request for Grant Reviewers from NSF
- (Guest post from Richard Beigel, NSF Program Director for Algorithmic Foundations)
In order that proposals from CDI PIs (See below for what the CDI grants are) get a fair and knowledgeable review it is important that we have experts available for all areas covered by CISE to serve on these panels. To make this happen it is important to have the CISE community volunteer in large numbers to serve as reviewers for CDI. There is a webform available at here for anyone who wants to volunteer to review CDI proposals.
Cyber-Enabled Discovery and Innovation (CDI) is NSF's bold five-year initiative to create revolutionary science and engineering research outcomes made possible by innovations and advances in computational thinking. Computational thinking is defined comprehensively to encompass computational concepts, methods, models, algorithms, and tools. Applied in challenging science and engineering research and education contexts, computational thinking promises a profound impact on the Nation's ability to generate and apply new knowledge. Collectively, CDI research outcomes are expected to produce paradigm shifts in our understanding of a wide range of science and engineering phenomena and socio-technical innovations that create new wealth and enhance the national quality of life.
