U.S. and Israel flags


The U.S. National Science Foundation and the United States-Israel Binational Science Foundation recently announced the U.S.-Israel Collaboration in Computer Science (USICCS), which aims to support collaborative research projects that lead to new knowledge in foundational areas of computer science.

The USICCS program supports transformative research projects that advance the design and analysis of algorithms. The main goal is to understand the fundamental limits of resource-bounded computation and to find efficient solutions within those limits. USICCS also supports research on the design and analysis of new algorithms in parallel and distributed models. The program seeks new techniques for the design and analysis of algorithms in areas such as cryptography, computational geometry, computational biology, game theory, and numerical, symbolic, and algebraic computing.

In addition, USICCS supports research projects on the science of design, verification, operation, utilization, and evaluation of computer systems using new approaches, robust theories, high-leverage tools, and lasting principles. The USICCS program wants transformative ideas that reformulate the relationship between requirements, design, and evolution of software and software-intensive systems.
