Software is a critical element in a broad range of real-world systems ranging from micro- and nano-scale embedded devices in highways, household appliances, and medical devices to continental- and global-scale critical infrastructures, such as communications and electrical power grids and transportation, health care, and enterprise systems. The Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) is calling for researchers to discover, define, and apply new scientific principles, engineering processes and methods, and educational pedagogy to the design, development, and use of software for real-world systems. The Software for Real-World Systems (SRS) Program specifically intends to bridge and transcend CISE disciplines of computer and information science and engineering (e.g., a new logic for reasoning about software systems complexity) to answer the question: How can software for real-world systems be designed, built, and analyzed in elegant and powerful new ways? An investigator may participate as a PI, co-PI, or Senior Personnel in at most two SRS proposal, but in no more than one proposal as a single investigator. NSF 07-599 (Posted 9/28/07)
