Nanoelectronics for 2020 and Beyond (NEB)
The Incentive Funds Program in the Research Office is requesting Letters of Intent for the National Science Foundation (NSF) – Nanoelectronics for 2020 and Beyond (NEB) 2010 program.
Research Office Letters of Intent submission deadline: Monday, November 1, 2010
NSF Full Proposal Deadline(s) (due by 5 p.m. proposer’s local time):
January 19, 2011
Information: Debbie Delmore at email@example.com or (541) 737-8390
Limit Summary: An academic institution may submit no more than two (2) proposals on which it is the lead organization in response to this solicitation.
In an effort to provide the highest level of excellence and viability for funding, a review process will be put in place if more than two proposals are submitted. The finalists will be asked to represent Oregon State University and to submit their proposals to the NSF-NEB program.
NSF together with the semiconductor industry’s Nanoelectronics Research Initiative (NRI) plans to jointly support innovative research and education activities on the topic of Nanoelectronics for 2020 and Beyond (NEB).
The goal of this solicitation is to advance the forefront of computation, information processing, sensor technologies, and communications infrastructure beyond the physical and conceptual limitations of current technologies. Continuing evolution of electronics beyond the scaling limits of Moore’s Law will require broad thinking across multiple disciplines. The program is intended to support proposals by interdisciplinary teams of investigators committed to exploring innovative research concepts in nanoelectronics involving fundamental challenges from novel materials, chemistry and logic devices, to circuit designs and systems architectures, algorithms, and perhaps entirely new paradigms of computation, sensing, and processing of information. Proposals may also address additional challenges arising from increasing functionality through heterogeneous integration of novel devices and technologies. Proposals should discuss effective ways in which education of the workforce and broadening participation are integrated within the proposed research activities.
Guidance for preparation of Letter of Intent to the Research Office:
- Title of Project
- List of interdisciplinary collaborations (at least 3)
- Letters of intent need to address aspects of at least two of the following research themes. Provide a brief description of the two themes being proposed:
- Exploring New Chemistries and Materials for Nanoelectronics
- Exploring Alternative State Variable and Heterogeneous Integration for nanoelectronic Devices and Systems
- Exploring Novel Paradigms of Computing
- Budget being requested from NSF
- Letters of Intent are limited to three (3) pages.
- Be submitted electronically as a MSWord or PDF document to: firstname.lastname@example.org
