The National Science Foundation is inviting grant applications for innovative research on control theory and control technology driven by real-life applications. The program supports transformative research in established topic areas such as model-based control, but emphasizes paradigm-shifting ideas for control strategies that may be inspired by nature, unconventional applications, and the combined role of feedback and uncertainty in systems that incorporate large numbers of sensors and actuators. It also funds new sensor and actuator concepts that integrate feedback and signal processing to achieve a sensing or actuation objective.
DEADLINE: The full proposal windows are September 1 to October 1 and
January 15 to February 15.
