Advances in Information Technology (IT) have dramatically transformed the way in which our entire society lives, works, learns, communicates, and does business. In particular, the conduct of science and engineering has been profoundly altered, so that it is possible today to work on problems in these areas at unprecedented levels of speed, precision, and detail. In education, IT has the potential to make available in the remotest corners of earth the highest levels of learning, information, and analysis. To enhance the positive effects of these transformations, our research programs must be expanded considerably, and the supply of high-quality trained personnel must be substantially increased. The National Science Foundation wishes to fund innovative, high payoff research, which explores new scientific, engineering, and educational areas in IT.

We strongly encourage all investigators to wait until the FY 2004 Information Technology Research (ITR) solicitation is issued this fall before forming teams and beginning to draft FY2004 ITR proposals.
