The NSF is rolling out a major new initiative in late September on “Cyber-enabled Discovery and Innovation.” This will begin as a $50 million dollar program the first year, and will grow over the next 5 years into a $250 million program.
The goal of this workshop is to inform the scientific community about the CDI program, with the aim of eliciting strong proposals involving mathematical scientists. This workshop will be focused on the “knowledge extraction” aspect of the CDI program. For more information about CDI, go to http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2007/nsf07603/nsf07603.pdf
We plan on having three types of presentations:
(Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics, Director)
Stanley Osher (Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics, Mathematics)
