Through the Advanced Learning Technologies (ALT) program, the CISE and EHR Directorates of NSF support research that: 1) enables radical improvements in learning through innovative computer and information technologies, and 2) advances research in computer science, information technology, learning, and cognitive science through the unique challenges posed by learning environments and learning technology platforms. Integrative research approaches that build across disciplines and establish tight linkages among theory, experiment, and design are strongly encouraged. Technology goals may include systems for tutoring or assessment, modeling and sensing of cognitive or emotional states, context awareness, natural language interfaces, collaboration, knowledge management, and non-traditional goals that redefine the roles of technology in learning.

The purpose of this PA is to encourage small businesses to develop innovative software for addressing the integration of distributed cross-disciplinary data sources into coherent knowledge bases for biomedical research. Federating such data sources requires solving a large number of technical, scientific, financial, social and legal issues, and new tools are needed for aiding in almost every aspect of this problem. A reasonable mechanism for maintenance and expansion of the software as well as integration with existing solutions should be carefully outlined. PA-05-003 (NIHG 10/15/04)

With an emphasis on two-year colleges, the Advanced Technological Education (ATE) program focuses on the education of technicians for the high-technology fields that drive our nation's economy. The program involves partnerships between academic institutions and employers to promote improvement in the education of science and engineering technicians at the undergraduate and secondary school levels. The ATE program supports curriculum development; professional development of college faculty and secondary school teachers; career pathways to two-year colleges from secondary schools and from two-year colleges to four-year institutions; and other activities. A secondary goal is articulation between two-year and four-year programs for K-12 prospective teachers that focus on technological education. NSF 05-530 (Posted 12/8/04)
The primary program objectives of the financial assistance program in Neutron Research are to develop new areas of neutron instrumentation with emphasis on cold neutrons; to explore and develop new areas of neutron scattering science, with emphasis on macromolecular science, condensed matter physics, and chemistry; to assist and train facility users in their research; and to conduct other outreach and educational activities that advance the use of neutrons by U.S. university and industrial scientists. This will entail stationing scientific staff at the NCNR who, in collaboration with NIST and visiting scientists, advance these objectives. 2005-NCNR-01 (FG 3/1/05)
The Scientific Steering Committee for the K-INBRE is calling for proposals to support: 1) Pilot Grants, 2) Bridging Grants, 3) Institutional Core Facilities, and 4) Recruitment Packages.
