Dear Colleagues:

The U.S. National Science Foundation has just published a Program
Solicitation, NSF 15-523, for RIDIR – “Resource Implementations for Data
Intensive Research in the Social Behavioral and Economic Sciences.” The
submission deadline is February 23, 2015.

 Program Solicitation

 The synopsis of the Program is quoted below. Successful applicants will
produce a “finished product” – either centered around a new/improved
technique with links to an existing data base(s) or a database itself in a
form and with tools which make it readily useable by researchers. The
database should be large and of interest to a broad intellectual range of
potential users with a focus (although not necessarily an exclusive focus)
on Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences. Databases need not necessarily
be new and could, for example amalgamate several extant ones.

 *Synopsis of Program*

“As part of NSF’s Cyberinfrastructure Framework for 21st Century Science
and Engineering (CIF21) activity, the Directorate for Social, Behavioral
and Economic Sciences (SBE) seeks to develop user-friendly large-scale
next-generation data resources and relevant analytic techniques to advance
fundamental research in SBE areas of study. Successful proposals will,
within the financial resources provided by the award, construct such
databases and/or relevant analytic techniques and produce a finished
product that will enable new types of data-intensive research. The
databases or techniques should have significant impacts, either across
multiple fields or within broad disciplinary areas, by enabling new types
of data-intensive research in the SBE sciences.”

The competition is being administered by four Program Directors and feel
free to contact them for any question you may have.
