Frontiers in Research and Education in Computing: A View from the National
Science Foundation

Jeannette M. Wing
President's Professor of Computer Science, Computer Science Department,
Carnegie Mellon University Assistant Director, Computer and Information
Science and Engineering Directorate, National Science Foundation

The NSF Computer and Information Science and Engineering Directorate funds
84% of all academic computer science research in the United States. I will
present highlights of CISE's research and education programs, including
current interests in cyber-enabled discovery and innovation, cyber physical
systems, data-intensive computing, network science and engineering, socially
intelligent computing, and trustworthy computing; and future interests in
information technology's role in energy and the environment and the
intersection of computer science and economics. I will also put NSF's
investments in computing within the broader national and international
