The Division of Earth Sciences (EAR), National Science Foundation (NSF)
has released the 2013 Geoinformatics Solicitation (NSF 11-581) of
proposals for the development of cyberinfrastructure for the geosciences.

EAR seeks the development and implementation of enabling information
technology with impacts that extend beyond an individual investigator or
small group of investigators and that facilitates the next generation of
geosciences research. Proposals to this solicitation may seek support
for community-driven development and implementation of databases; tools
for data integration, interoperability, and visualization; software
development and code hardening; and data-intensive new computing
methodologies that support the enhancement of geosciences research and
education activities. Collaboration with computational scientists and
the development of public/private partnerships are strongly encouraged.

The efforts supported by this solicitation do not overlap with, but are
complementary to, EarthCube, a partnership between the Geosciences
Directorate (GEO) and the Office of Cyberinfrasrtructure (OCI) to build
an integrated geosciences-wide cyberinfrastructure. The goal of
EarthCube is to transform the conduct of research in the geosciences by
supporting community-created cyberinfrastructure that integrates
knowledge management across the geosciences.

For further information about EarthCube, go to:

The Geoinformatics solicitation will support efforts to create the
underlying knowledge base and utilities that will be integrated, over
time, through EarthCube. Projects submitted to the Geoinformatics
solicitation should be proposed using modern software techniques and
standards that facilitate eventual integration into a geoscience-wide
knowledge system.

Full proposal deadline date: Monday, 1 July 2013.
