The NSF seeks projects designed to prepare current and future generations of scientists and engineers to create, advance and exploit cyberinfrastructure. While this cyberinfrastructure is providing the productivity enhancements we have come to expect with each new generation of IT, it is also empowering research communities to undertake bold new lines of inquiry; these may be founded on traditional cyberinfrastructure components such as supercomputers, clusters, and workstations, as well as emerging cyberinfrastructure elements such as observing and sensing systems, intelligent and remotely operable instrumentation, collaboratories, federated data archives and digital libraries. The Cyberinfrastructure TEAM (CI-TEAM): Demonstration Projects solicitation seeks to support promising demonstration projects from partnerships of organizations aimed at positioning the national science and engineering community to more effectively engage in national and global research and education activities that promote and leverage cyberinfrastructure.

NSF will select 10-20 projects for support that, together, address a rich mix of cyberinfrastructure-related workforce dimensions and that promise to serve as pathfinders to effective larger-scale implementation activities in the future. Collectively, CI-TEAM awards will prepare current and future generations of scientists, engineers, and educators to use, support, deploy, develop, and design cyberinfrastructure; and foster inclusion of diverse groups of people and organizations in science and engineering that participate in cyberinfrastructure activities.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research, 203 Jesse Hall no later than 5:00 p.m., Friday, April 8, 2005.  Letters of intent shall be limited to 3 pages and should briefly summarize the proposed activities, specify cyberinfrastructure-related science and engineering workforce dimensions on which the project will focus, list any anticipated partnering organizations or institutions, and outline the expected budget.

Amount: Up to $250,000 total over a maximum project duration of 24 months. Cost sharing is not required.
   
MU Deadline: 5:00 p.m., Friday, April 8, 2005
