The National Science Foundation has announced a major new
beginning in 2008 on Cyber-enabled Discovery
Innovation (CDI). See the formal solicitation for the precise
description of the program.
For the first round,
a letter of intent must be submitted between October 30 and November 30, 2007,
a preliminary proposal is due between December 7, 2007 and January 8, 2008,
with full proposals, when invited, due before April 29, 2008.
The NSF Mathematical
are making a coordinated effort to inform the mathematical
initiative and to facilitate the development
of research proposals.
The IMA welcomes requests from interdisciplinary groups of
scientists who wish to develop a proposal for CDI to
IMA. Teams of 2 to 4 people can come to IMA to spend a period of 1-5 days to
directions for possible proposals and/or for proposal
IMA will provide
working and meeting space, computer facilities, secretarial
and the costs of travel (airfare and/or ground transportation)

A brief statement (between a paragraph and a page) of the
goals of the
visit in reference to the CDI initiative.
Applications will be reviewed and responded to soon after they
Note that CDI is a program of the National Science Foundation.
The role of the IMA is to help make the mathematical community
aware of this opportunity and to facilitate the development of
