Networking Technology and Systems: The Networking Technology and Systems (NeTS) program supports pioneering visions and transformative research agendas that explore the frontiers of networking, provide a better understanding of the dynamics of large-scale networks, expand networking capabilities and use, and help pave the way for the next generation Internet. Since its inception, the NeTS program has continuously sought to ensure that its mission and scope is at the forefront of research. In previous years, the program identified core networking technologies worthy of further investigation, emphasized the importance of future Internet design, and encouraged groundbreaking research in broadly defined areas of networking. In FY 2008, the NeTS program is organized by research challenges, rather than core technologies, and emphasizes multi-disciplinary, holistic approaches that augment our knowledge about the design and deployment of robust, large-scale, heterogeneous networks. This solicitation invites innovative, forward-looking research projects in the following five areas: Networking at the Edges (NEDG); Network Ecosystems (NECO); Aware Networking (ANET); Exploratory Networking (XPLR); and Future Internet Design (FIND) Proposals may be submitted in one of the following three categories: Small - projects with total budgets up to $450K and durations of up to 3 years (with maximum annual budgets of $150K). Team - projects with total budgets up to $2.0M, and durations of up to 4 years (with maximum annual budgets of $500K). Planning grants, workshops and other community building activities: Proposals in this category must be discussed with a NeTS program officer prior to submission. Planning grants will be funded at levels up to $100K/year for up to two years. Workshops in new or emerging areas in networking research and education will be funded at levels up to $50K for one year.
