NSF Proposal Summary

NSF Proposal Summary (Team projects of 4 people)

Write a one-page Proposal for research to NSF (could be NIH or other agencies) in response to an NSF Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) Program Announcement on a topic that your team agrees on. It should use the Heilmeyer Criteria as a guide (see book Section 6.5) to writing. Use the NSF Grant Proposal Guide to learn about the formatting and the requirements for Intellectual Merit and Broader Impact. You should specify whether your project is 1, 2 or 3 years, and what you will produce in each year. You do not have to develop a budget, but assume you will spend less than $300K per year.

The challenge is to describe an appropriate project with enough detail about the method and goals, while keeping in one page.

1) Program Announcement name and title of your team's proposal is due 9pm Monday April 13, 2015 (send email to ben@cs.umd.edu).

2) Draft is due 9pm Monday April 27, 2015 (Post PDF on the bottom of this web page)

3) Critique (done individually) is due noon Friday May 1, 2015 (send email to authors (no attachments) and ben@cs.umd.edu)

4) Final version is due 9pm Monday May 4, 2015 (Post revised PDF on the bottom of this page)
