--------------------
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has released Program Solicitation
NSF 12-614, entitled 'Interdisciplinary Behavioral and Social Science
Research' (IBSS). This is the first of a series of three IBSS
solicitations. The full proposal deadline is Wednesday, 23 January 2013
at 5:00 p.m. proposers' local time.

This is a new solicitation for a new competition from the Directorate
for Social, Behavioral & Economic (SBE) Sciences. The IBSS Research
competition promotes the conduct of interdisciplinary research by teams
of investigators in the social and behavioral sciences. Emphasis is
placed on support for research that involves researchers from multiple
disciplinary fields that integrate scientific theoretical approaches and
methodologies from multiple disciplinary fields, and that is likely to
yield generalizable insights and information that will advance basic
knowledge and capabilities across multiple disciplinary fields.

Two types of projects may be supported by IBSS:

- IBSS Large Interdisciplinary Research Projects (with maximum award
sizes of $1,000,000)
- IBSS Interdisciplinary Team Exploratory Projects (with maximum award
sizes of $250,000)

In addition to the standing NSF merit review criteria of intellectual
merit and broader impacts, proposals submitted for the IBSS competition
will be evaluated using special review criteria with respect to three
different dimensions of their interdisciplinarity: the
interdisciplinarity of the research team, the interdisciplinarity of the
research approaches to be used, and the interdisciplinarity of the
expected intellectual significance of the research results. All
proposals submitted for the IBSS competition must include three or more
senior personnel from at least two different SBE disciplinary fields.

Submission deadline: Wednesday, 23 January 2013.
