Computer systems are ubiquitous, and society is increasingly dependent on them. They range from microprocessors embedded in automobiles and appliances to worldwide grids of advanced processors, storage, graphics devices, and instruments interconnected by high-speed networks. They are controlled by systems software, which has two main roles: manage the underlying hardware resources, and provide abstractions and services that facilitate the implementation and execution of application programs. However, too often computer systems fail, become compromised, or perform poorly. Moreover, they have become increasingly large and complex, thereby compounding problems. Addressing these challenges requires major advances in systems software. The Computer Systems Research (CSR) program supports innovative research and education projects that have the potential to: lead to
significant improvements in existing computer systems by increasing our fundamental understanding of such systems; produce systems software that is qualitatively and quantitatively more reliable and more efficient; and/or, to produce innovative curricula or educational materials that better prepare the next generation of computing professionals. The CSR program is also interested in projects that expand the capabilities of existing systems by exploiting the potential of new technologies or by developing innovative new ways to use existing technologies. Projects supported will strive to make significant progress on challenging, high-impact problems--as opposed to incremental progress on familiar problems--and will have a credible plan for demonstrating the utility and potential impact of the proposed work. The CSR program contains four topical areas: embedded and hybrid
systems, parallel and distributed operating systems, advanced execution systems, and systems modeling and analysis. Projects may range in size from single investigators to teams of several investigators. The CSR program also accepts proposals for workshops and Small Grants for Exploratory Research (SGERs).
