NSF's Cyberinfrastructure Council has initiated a comprehensive strategic planning process to guide the agency's investments in cyberinfrastructure - the IT-based infrastructure increasingly essential to progress in science and engineering. The agency’s plans are being developed in a document entitled NSF’s Cyberinfrastructure Vision for 21st Century Discovery.
NSF invites community comments on the current draft of this document, which is available at http://www.nsf.gov/od/oci/CI-v40.pdf . Comments should be provided via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Future drafts of the document will be released as the agency’s plans are shaped by community input, and as new chapters are developed.
NSF plans to release the first complete version of this living document in the Spring of 2006.
