We are reaching out during these difficult times to convey that NSF is currently open, but we are largely operating on-line in the virtual environment.
We understand the impact of academic and community closures on all sectors of society, including your research, educational, and personal activities. Through agency and divisional planning and exceptional IT support, the IOS program directors and staff are here and you can contact us. We continue to welcome your communications, proposal submissions, virtual panel service, and we are available to answer questions or concerns.
There are many ways to communicate and gather information – the NSF website, the IOS blog, twitter and email, and directly with individual program directors. Contact information for all program directors and staff can be accessed through the IOS website https://www.nsf.gov/div/index.jsp?div=IOS.
We appreciate all the effort and work our research community is doing to keep moving forward and adapt to the rapid changes of these times. We urge you to also check in regularly either here or with your program staff for any new guidance from NSF during these particularly volatile times.
