Apply to PD 12-8085 as follows:
For full proposals submitted via FastLane: standard Grant Proposal Guidelines apply.
For full proposals submitted via Grants.gov: NSF Grants.gov Application Guide; A Guide for the Preparation and Submission of NSF Applications via Grants.gov Guidelines apply (Note: The NSF Grants.gov Application Guide is available on the Grants.gov website and on the NSF website at: http://www.nsf.gov/publications/pub_summ.jsp?ods_key=grantsgovguide)
Important Notice to Proposers
A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG), NSF 13-1, was issued on October 4, 2012 and is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 14, 2013. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 13-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.
Please be aware that significant changes have been made to the PAPPG to implement revised merit review criteria based on the National Science Board (NSB) report, National Science Foundation's Merit Review Criteria: Review and Revisions. While the two merit review criteria remain unchanged (Intellectual Merit and Broader Impacts), guidance has been provided to clarify and improve the function of the criteria. Changes will affect the project summary and project description sections of proposals. Annual and final reports also will be affected.
A by-chapter summary of this and other significant changes is provided at the beginning of both the Grant Proposal Guide and the Award & Administration Guide.
Full Proposal Window: September 1, 2013 - October 1, 2013
September 1 - October 1, Annually Thereafter
Full Proposal Window: January 15, 2014 - February 18, 2014
January 15 - February 15, Annually Thereafter
Due dates repeat annually. Please reference the CMMI main page for further specifics concerning unsolicited proposal submission windows.
The System Science (SYS) program funds fundamental research on engineered systems that supports the creation of a theoretically sound foundation for systems engineering. The System Science program invites proposals that address fundamental issues critical to the design of large scale complex engineered systems, such as: the relation of the structure of an engineering organization to design outcomes; uncertainty quantification and management from initial engineering design predictions through to operation and maintenance of large scale systems; the manner in which individual design decisions are aggregated to bring about whole systems; path dependence of design decision-making; the way that relevant knowledge and information, mediated by individual engineers organized into very large teams, impact systems engineering outcomes.
Research under the Systems Science program should draw on or extend established theory in mathematics, economics, organizational sociology, social psychology, and other relevant fields. The Systems Science program provides an opportunity to connect research on systems engineering or engineering design with basic research in dynamic systems, control systems, optimization, and other systems-related fields.
The System Science program does not fund the development of methods, processes or tools. Proposals that have system science or system engineering relevance, but for which the predominant research contribution is within an existing program in CMMI, should be submitted to the appropriate disciplinary program, with the System Science program identified as a secondary program.
