The Dynamics, Control and Systems Diagnostics (DCSD) program promotes the fundamental science and engineering of dynamic systems to advance solutions to urgent societal problems. Such problems include mitigating the impacts of climate change; responding to epidemics, cyber-attacks, extreme weather, and other natural and man-made events; promoting efficient and equitable production and distribution of resources; developing resilient infrastructure; improving the experience of work and learning; and meeting the challenges of aging and illness.

Recognizing that dynamic systems lie at the heart of current and emerging imperatives, the DCSD program invites proposals that match innovative research in dynamic systems with compelling applications. DCSD also welcomes research that demonstrates how these applications inform our understanding of dynamic systems, and how foundational knowledge must be further advanced to broaden the usefulness of dynamic systems approaches to new areas of application.

DCSD proposals should articulate clear Intellectual Merit through the advancement of knowledge in one of the following foundational areas:

Modeling: mathematical frameworks for studying the behavior of dynamic systems.
Analysis: theoretical and computational tools for discovery and exploration of structure in dynamic behavior.
Diagnostics: data-based methods to infer properties of dynamic systems from observations.
Control: methods to produce desired or mitigate undesired behaviors in dynamic systems.
Integration: architectures that expand the reach of dynamic systems and overcome application-specific challenges.

Application Deadline: Ongoing
