V Forinves Program Announcement

Discovery and Innovation Through Cyberactivity - Costa Rica (CR-DIC)

The Costa Rican National Council for Scientific and Technological Research (CONICIT), in association with the Costa Rica-United States of America Foundation (CRUSA), the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois, and under the auspices of the Advanced Research and Technology Collaboratory for the Americas (ARTCA) are pleased to announce Discovery and Innovation Through Cyberactivity - Costa Rica (CR-DIC) to the international scientific and research community.

This initiative will facilitate revolutionary research through innovation and advances in computational thinking that is applied to different areas of the sciences and humanities.

We therefore invite scholars from different disciplines to collaborate in the development of cutting-edge research that takes full and innovative advantage of computational advances and has the potential to have a broad impact upon society.

Thematic areas:

 1.  From data to knowledge: proposals that improve cognition and generate new knowledge from a wealth of digital data.
 2.  Understanding complexity in natural, artificial systems, and social systems: proposals that lead to fundamental insights on systems comprising multiple interacting elements.
 3.  Development of virtual organizations: proposals that facilitate discovery and innovation by connecting people through the use of virtual communication tools and that overcome institutional, geographical and cultural boundaries.

Priority will be given to initiatives that encourage collaborative research between American countries.

Eligible Organizations:

Nonprofit, non-academic organizations: Independent museums, observatories, research laboratories, professional associations and similar organizations in Costa Rica that are associated with research and duly registered with the Science and Technology Registry of CONICIT.

Public, non-profit universities and university institutes: Accredited in Costa Rica with facilities in the country, acting on behalf of the research organization. These organizations must be duly registered with the Science and Technology Registry of CONICIT.

Proposals must be submitted online at www.artcaonline.org in the period between October 5 and November 11, 2009.

The official announcement for this call for proposals was held on Monday, October 5 at the facilities of CONICIT in Zapote.
