NSF recently released a Dear Colleague Letter (DCL)
inviting the community to provide input on data-intensive science and
engineering research questions and challenges and the essential data-related
cyberinfrastructure (CI) services and capabilities needed to publish, discover,
transport, manage and process data in secure, performant and scalable ways to
enable that data-intensive research.
This is an opportunity for the BIO community to provide input on
questions, challenges and associated needs specifically related to data-focused
CI. While this DCL is not a funding opportunity, all input would be used to
inform the refinement of NSF’s CI investment strategy and planning of future
NSF funding opportunities.
For more information on how to submit ideas, please refer to the
DCL (NSF 20-015) or
contact the NSF Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for submissions is December 16, 2019.

A new NSF Dear Colleague Letter (DCL; NSF 17-031) has been posted: Request for Information on Future Needs for Advanced Cyberinfrastructure to Support Science and Engineering Research (NSF CI 2030).
From the DCL:
“NSF Directorates and Offices are jointly requesting input from the research community on science challenges and associated cyberinfrastructure needs over the next decade and beyond. Contributions to this Request for Information will be used during the coming year to inform the Foundation’s strategy and plans for advanced cyberinfrastructure investments. We invite bold, forward-looking ideas that will provide opportunities to advance the frontiers of science and engineering well into the future.”
We encourage MCB to weigh in – what do you see as the cyberinfrastructure that will be needed to advance molecular and cellular biosciences?
The DCL points to an external submission website (http://www.nsfci2030.org/). Please note that the deadline for submissions is April 5, 2017 5:00 PM ET. Questions about this effort and the submission process should be sent to Dr. William Miller, Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure, at this email address: email@example.com.
