UPDATE 8/31/18: All three IOS Solicitations are now Available Online! See this post for details

Update on No-Deadline Solicitation:

IOS No Deadline Solicitation Update 8/31/2018

We announced in October 2017 that BIO would implement a “no-deadline” full proposals submission in 2018 and that all four divisions would release new solicitations in mid-2018 (for more information on no-deadlines, check out the Dear Colleague Letter and associated FAQs). It’s mid-August and I bet you’re wondering what’s going on with the solicitations.

The wait will soon be over – the solicitations are in the final stages of the NSF review and clearance by the NSF Policy Office, Budget Office and the Office of the NSF General Counsel (i.e., our lawyers). Once they are cleared, they will be ready for release!

Make sure to sign up for NSF Updates, the email service that will alert you the minute that the solicitations are active online. Read them carefully for important information about proposal submission to IOS and if you have questions, contact a program director.
