Science of Design: The Science of Design (SoD) Program at NSF is soliciting proposals for projects that will bring creative, scientific advances to design as it pertains to computer-based artifacts, especially software-intensive systems. Design is a topic of increasing interest in many fields, and computer scientists can play a leading role in, and be a major beneficiary of, the advancement of design research and education to meet the critical software design challenges of the 21st century. The focus of this program is on the design of software-intensive systems. However, importing and adapting ideas from other design fields (engineering, urban planning, architecture, economics and the arts, for example) is encouraged. Similarly, it is critical that software design researchers work across different areas within computer science to insure that design includes the interdependenciesof software with other systems artifacts. The objective of the program is to bring new paradigms, concepts, approaches, models, and theories into the development of a strong intellectual foundation for software design, which will ultimately improve the processes of constructing and modifying software-intensive systems. This body of knowledge needs to be intellectually rigorous, formalized where appropriate, supported by empirical evidence where possible, and above all, teachable. SoD solicits proposals in three categories: Team Projects (TEAM) Community Building Activities (CBA) Highly Creative Exploratory Research (HCER) The focus of this competition is on the development of new research directions. Accordingly, continuations of current lines of research are unlikely to be competitive. Each proposal should articulate its vision of a Science of Design and how the proposed project fitsinto that context. Moreover, each proposal should provide a convincing argument that the proposed research is innovative and unique in its contribution to a Science of Design discipline, including careful reference to the literature.
