The U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) recently announced an organizational realignment, including plans to integrate the Office of Cyberinfrastructure (OCI) within the Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE).
CISE's Farnam Jahanian and OCI's Alan Blatecky issued a letter to the science and engineering community describing the realignment. "NSF has announced plans for the Office of Cyberinfrastructure to become a division within the Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering in order to maximize NSF’s science and engineering outcomes and improve operational agility," the letter says.
Jahanian and Blatecky's letter says the planned realignment will strengthen the agency's commitment to cyberinfrastructure and multi-disciplinary collaborations; build on shared strengths, interests, and expertise; ensure the continuity of staff, budget, and programs; and accelerate the transition to practice and benefit society. "With this planned realignment, it is also expected that many long-term opportunities will be leveraged," the letter adds.
