NSF Request for Information – Advanced Cyberinfrastructure Needs

Dear Biological Anthropology Colleagues,

If you are working in research area that needs and/or utillizes advanced cyberinfrastructure (e.g., advanced computing, data infrastructure, software infrastructure, applications, networking, cybersecurity), please consider responding to the request for information below.

In January, NSF released a Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) -Request for Information (RFI) on Future Needs for Advanced Cyberinfrastructure to Support Science and Engineering Research (NSF CI 2030), www.nsf.gov/pubs/2017/nsf17031/nsf17031.jsp.

Responses to this RFI will directly inform the shaping of NSF’s investment plans for research cyberinfrastructure – advanced computing; data, software, and networking infrastructure; cybersecurity, and associated workforce development – to revolutionize the frontiers of all science and engineering domains over the next decade and beyond.

The response deadline is April 5, 2017, 5:00 PM ET. I strongly encourage you to provide a contribution so that the needs of your research discipline will be well-represented in NSF’s planning and prioritization in this critical area. The DCL provides full background and the a link to the required submission website, https://www.nsfci2030.org.

Thank you for your contributions to science and engineering research, and thank you in advance for your input to NSF’s strategic planning for future research cyberinfrastructure. Please direct any questions about the RFI to William Miller, NSF Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure, nsfci2030rfi@nsf.gov.
