***NEW NSF PROGRAM IN LEARNING AND INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS***
There is a new NSF initiative in learning and intelligent systems:
understanding and enhancing the ability to learn
and create. It is a foundation-wide initiative to fund
interdisciplinary, collaborative research on that topic, particularly
research that would not be funded by any existing program. Basically,
the research must span large areas of science--biology and computing,
for example--so as to fall outside the scope of a single NSF
Unfortunately, the deadlines on proposals are close.
