The State of CISE

While we have seen a increase in computer science funding over the past few decades, it has not kept up with the great increase in the number of researchers in our field making it difficult for many computer scientists to find funding. Peter Freeman, who heads the Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) directorate of the National Science Foundation, co-authored this piece in the current Computing Research News describing has CISE funding has changed over the past decade.

A companion piece written by the CISE division directors describes how CISE is adapting to the large number of proposals. The article emphasizes some reorganization and making connections to other funding centers in and out of the NSF. Until CISE sees a large budget increase, too many computer scientist will remain unfunded or under funded which will hamper CS research in the long term.
