OSCER users,

If you're at an Oklahoma institution and you plan to submit to
the program described below (or if you're collaborating with
an Oklahoma institution on a such a proposal), OSCER stands
ready to help.



NSF Critical Techniques and Technologies for Advancing Big Data
Science & Engineering (BIGDATA)

Deadline: June 9, 2014


This year, the solicitation invites two types of proposals:

"Foundations" (F): those developing or studying fundamental
techniques, theories, methodologies, and technologies of broad
applicability to Big Data problems;


"Innovative Applications" (IA): those developing techniques,
methodologies and technologies of key importance to a
Big Data problem directly impacting at least one specific

All proposals must address critical challenges for big data
management, big data analytics, or scientific discovery processes
impacted by big data.

These techniques, methodologies and technologies can be
computational, statistical, or mathematical in nature, and
proposals may focus on novel theoretical analysis or experimental
evaluation of these techniques and methodologies.

A high level of innovation is expected in all proposals.

Proposals in all areas of science and engineering covered by
participating directorates at NSF are welcome.
