      Many changes at the National Science Foundation both in programs and personnel. Some highlights of upcoming CISE programs.
      Unlike conference deadlines, NSF and other grants change frequently. If you are a US academic you should subscribe to the CISE emails and RSS feeds (see here) or check the Theory Matters Funding Page often.

      For personnel, let's work our way up. Richard Beigel, a theory program director, is finishing his term and heading back to Temple. There was a part-time replacement chosen but looks like that will be delayed. Might be a slower turn-around on theory grants this year. Tracy Kimbrel stays on as a program director.

      Susanne Hambrusch will become the new director of CCF, the division of CISE that funds most of theory. Susanne replaces Sampath Kannan who is returning to Penn. 

      The search for a new CISE head (called Assistant Director) to replace the already departed Jeannette Wing continues but no announcements yet.

      MIT Engineering Dean Subra Suresh has been nominated by Obama for NSF Director and awaits congressional approval. 

      The NSF budget process for next year looks good so far but there has been talk of a congressional freeze on most domestic activities. The NSF is preparing for both possibilities.
