Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) Research Initiation Initiative (CRII)

2 hours 34 min ago
Full Proposal Deadline Date: September 30, 2015

Program Guidelines: NSF 15-569

With the goal of encouraging research independence immediately upon obtaining one's first academic position after receipt of the PhD, the Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) will award grants to initiate the course of one's independent research. Understanding the critical role of establishing that independence early in one's career, it is expected that funds will be used to support untenured faculty or research scientists (or equivalent) in their first two ...

A partnership to secure and protect the emerging Internet of Things

Fri, 08/28/2015 - 12:52

The digital world once existed largely in non-material form. But with the rise of connected homes, smart grids and autonomous vehicles, the cyber and the physical are merging in new and exciting ways. These hybrid forms are often called cyber-physical systems (CPS), and are giving rise to a new Internet of Things.

Such systems have unique characteristics and vulnerabilities that must be studied and addressed to make sure they are reliable and secure, and that they maintain ...

Limiting 'false discoveries'

Thu, 08/06/2015 - 14:00

Big data sets are important tools for modern science. Mining for correlations between millions of pieces of information can reveal vital relationships or predict future outcomes, such as risk factors for a disease or structures of new chemical compounds.

These mining operations are not without risk, however. Researchers can have a tough time telling when they have unearthed a nugget of truth, or what amounts to fool's gold: A correlation that seems to have predictive value, but ...

Cyber-defense and forensic tool turns 20

Tue, 08/04/2015 - 03:11

Sometimes a new idea or product can burst into the world fully-formed, but more often than not it takes time for things of value to evolve, improve, emerge and find an audience.

In 1995, Vern Paxson, then a computer science Ph.D. student at the University of California, Berkeley, began writing what would eventually become Bro, the ground-breaking open source cybersecurity software that defends innumerable ...
