and NSF
Transformative research involves ideas,
discoveries, or tools that radically change our
understanding of an important existing scientific
or engineering concept or educational practice or
leads to the creation of a new paradigm or field
of science, engineering, or education. Such
research challenges current understanding or
provides pathways to new frontiers.
Intellectual Merit criterion:
To what extent does the proposed activity
suggest and explore creative, original, or
potentially transformative concepts?

Good Strategy (1): Collaboration
• Steve Johnson: Where Good Ideas Come From:
• Most innovations are result of collaborative effort hatched in academic
labs or corporate R&D departments rather than in some isolated
genius’s garage
• How can you collaborate?
• Look up existing projects in NSF Award Search
• Contact the researchers
• Contact program directors for suggestions
• Talk to colleagues, also in other departments, universities,
industry, countries

FY12 solicitation: NSF 12-512
• Multiple NSF Directorates participating: CISE, SBE, ENG
• Vision: seek improvements in safe, effective, efficient, equitable, and patientcentered, individualized, and evidence-based health and wellness services through
innovations in computer and information science and engineering.
Scope:
Smart Health and Wellbeing especially encourages the research community to pursue
bold ideas that go beyond and/or combine traditional areas of computer and
information science and engineering.
Projects submitted to this program should be motivated by specific challenges in
health and wellbeing.
The Smart Health and Wellbeing program aims to facilitate large-scale discoveries
that yield long-term, transformative impact in how we treat illness and maintain our
health.

Smart Health & Wellbeing (SHW)
Research Directions (CISE-focused):
* Modeling, decision making, automated discovery, visualization, databases,
summarization, data fusion, sensor networks, telemetry, robotics, vision, speech &
language, security and privacy, …
* new security and cryptographic solutions to protect patient privacy while providing
legitimate anytime, anywhere access to health services will require
* information retrieval, data mining, and decision support software systems to
support personalized medicine
* remote and networked sensors and actuators, mobile platforms, novel interactive
displays, and computing and networking infrastructure that support continuous
monitoring and real-time, customized feedback on health and behavior
* anonymized and aggregated data for community-wide health awareness and
maintenance
* better and more efficient delivery of health services enabled by virtual worlds,
robotics, image, and natural language understanding
* safe critical care provided by software-controlled and interoperable medical
devices
* healthcare systems and applications that are usable (to preclude or minimize
failures due to human error) and that are useful (matching the mental model of
users, from provider to patient, so people make appropriate decisions and
choices)

Subscribe to CISE Distribution List
http://www.nsf.gov/cise/news/mail_lists.jsp
CISE has implemented a mail distribution list to notify the Computer and Information
Science and Engineering community of items we think may be of interest. The
postings will be infrequent and brief and will typically point to further information on
the CISE or NSF website. This may duplicate some of the items contained in NSF
Custom News Service but will also contain items not always available there::
• Announcements
• Vacancy notices
• CISE webcasts of interest
• Meeting notices, workshops
• News items, etc.
To subscribe: send a message to: [email protected] with no text in
the subject or message body.
If you no longer wish to be included on the distribution list, you can elect to be
removed from the list at any time. Instructions for unsubscribing will be included at
the end of each list message.
