The National Science Foundation's Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) is calling for the computing research community to unite in the establishment of a Computing Community Consortium (CCC). CISE will support the CCC as a community proxy responsible for facilitating the conceptualization and design of promising infrastructure-intensive projects identified by the computing research community to address compelling scientific "grand challenges" in computing. The CCC will ensure broad community engagement in the identification of compelling research agendas and in the subsequent identification and refinement of related shared use infrastructure requirements.

One of the first responsibilities of the CCC will be guiding the design of the Global Environment for Networking Innovations (GENI). As such, the process to be followed in maturing the GENI design might serve as a prototype for the identification and development of other infrastructure-intensive projects yet to be defined by the computing community. In fact, the CCC must play a broader role, serving a community proxy function that facilitates the conceptualization of other promising infrastructure-intensive projects designed to meet the computing community's broad research needs.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 5:00 pm Friday, April 21, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to a two-page summary of the proposed program and the entities that will form the consortium.

Amount: One cooperative agreement not to exceed $6,000,000 for 36 months, subject to availability of funds is anticipated.
MU Deadline: 5:00 p.m., Friday, April 21, 2006 (letter of intent)
Sponsor Deadline:

June 10, 2006
