NSF Proposals

Dear blog,  please forgive me for my neglect these many, long weeks!

About this time last year, I blogged about some tips that I found useful for writing NSF proposals.  It turns out that the NSF proposal I submitted last year was funded!  Let’s hope that things go as well again this year.  I sometimes get requests for full proposals I’ve submitted that have been funded, and like many researchers, I’m a bit uncomfortable posting an entire proposal.  However, this time, in the spirit of recommitting myself to interesting and reasonably frequent blogging, I’m going to post the one page project summary for my funded proposal, and I will post it right here.  I hope that some readers will find it useful.

NSF ICES program

Noam Nissan blogs here about the new NSF ICES program that is focused on the interface between CS and Economics and Social Sciences.

A quick bit of information that I can add to this post: the director of this program, Tracy Kimbrel, is my academic sibling (and co-author).  I can vouch that he’s extremely sharp, personable, and has a strong breadth and depth of knowledge in CS theory.  The theory community is lucky to have him as a NSF program director.
