NSF’s CISE directorate seeks to fund a community-driven organization that will serve as a community proxy responsible for facilitating the identification of compelling research challenges and opportunities emerging within CISE fields and between CISE fields and other fields. An important goal of the organization will be to communicate future research visions across stakeholders with interest in information, communication computing and cyberinfrastructure research including those in academia, industry, government, professional societies, virtual organizations, and the general public.
The proposed CISE-RV should:
- Engage all fields of computer and information science and engineering including emerging areas and applications, and areas overlapping with other science and engineering fields;
- Embrace a diverse organizational model that strives to balance factors like diversity of topics, demography, geography, institution types and departments, and rank/career stages;
- Facilitate the generation of ambitious medium- and long-range (fundamental and translational) research visions that have broad support from the information, communication, computing and cyberinfrastructure research community;
- Enable rapid and efficient community response to emerging opportunities and areas of national and societal need;
- Communicate the research visions and their importance to a wide range of stakeholders including the research community itself, and also others in industry and government, as well as more broadly to the general public; and
- Evaluate outcomes including meetings and workshops, topics considered at these meetings, and effectiveness of communication and dissemination efforts.
