Call for Research in Integrated System Design

Introduction

The SRC announces a call for new research in Integrated System Design. Details of submission requirements and schedule appear later in this announcement. Details of technical research needs are specified in the research needs document. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, algorithms, architectures, and applications.

Special Requirements

  • The total annual budget for all projects funded under this call is approximately $1,000,000. Individual projects may vary considerably in size, depending on the needs of the researchers and the scope of the proposed work. Multi-faculty, multi-student, and even multi-university programs will be considered, subject to the constraints of available funds and merit of the proposed work.
  • Please note that the time scale for submittal of white papers and full proposals is very short. Due to schedule constraints of our reviewers, we will not be able to accept requests for extensions.
  • Awards will be standard SRC contracts for research and will begin June 1, 2001. Project duration is nominally three years, but projects of larger scope and exceptional merit may be considered for four- or five-year duration.
  • Submissions will be in two phases. In phase one, interested parties are invited to submit one-page white papers. A subset of the white papers received will be selected and their authors invited to submit full proposals. A subset of the full proposals will be selected for funding. Details of this process and examples of the required white paper contents and format are given here.

The solicitation and evaluation process will be conducted on a very compressed schedule. Please note the short times for submission of white papers and full proposals:
