Information technology (IT)-enabled systems, tools, and services have had a profound impact on the practice of science and engineering research and education. Integrated together to create a national cyberinfrastructure, these systems, tools and services are enabling individuals, groups and organizations to advance science and engineering in ways that revolutionize what they can do, how they do it, and who can participate. To harness the full power of cyberinfrastructure and the promise it portends for discovery, learning and innovation across and within all areas of science and engineering requires focused investments in the preparation of a science and engineering workforce with the knowledge and requisite skills needed to create, advance and exploit cyberinfrastructure over the long-term. The creation of the CI-TEAM program signals NSF's commitment
to join with the national science and engineering community in the support of projects designed to prepare current and future generations of scientists and engineers to create, advance and exploit cyberinfrastructure. Since cyberinfrastructure promises to make state-of-the-art science and engineering research more accessible to all, it is expected that activities undertaken will broaden the participation of groups currently underrepresented in the science and engineering enterprise. This first CI-TEAM solicitation seeks promising demonstration project proposals from partnerships of organizations committed to the preparation of a diverse cyberinfrastructure-savvy science and engineering workforce. Following merit review of the proposals received, NSF will select 10-20 projects for support that together address a rich mix of cyberinfrastructure-related workforce dimensions, and that
promise to serve as pathfinders to effective larger-scale implementation activities in the future.
