Dynamics, Control and Cognition (DCC)

Important Information for Proposers

A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 22-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after October 4, 2021. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 22-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.


The Dynamics, Controls and Cognition (DCC) Cluster supports fundamental research on the modeling, analysis, diagnostics, measurement, and control of dynamical systems, including but not limited to those involving physical interaction between human and embodied artificial intelligences. Support is expected to lead to new theories, methods, and engineering applications with broad societal impacts.  Interdisciplinary, convergent proposals are welcome.  Proposals of all sizes will therefore be considered as justified by the project description. Investigators are encouraged to discuss their ideas with DCC program directors well in advance of submission.
