The NSF website says:
It is anticipated that an official solicitation for the FY 2010 CDI competition will be posted in the coming weeks. For the information of the research community, the following statements highlight important items and expected changes from the previous FY 2009 solicitation. This is subject to change until the FY 2010 solicitation is officially approved and posted.
- No Type III: As in FY 2009, there will be no Type III competition in FY 2010.
- No pre-proposals: Preliminary proposals will be eliminated – PIs will be asked to submit full proposals only.
- Deadlines: Type I and Type II will continue to be independent competitions in FY 2010. The new deadlines will be February 4, 2010, for Type I full proposals and February 5, 2010, for Type II full proposals.
- The paragraphs on societal impact of CDI, in the synopsis and description sections, will be expanded to address national grand challenges and presidential initiatives (e.g., see http://www.ostp.gov/galleries/press_release_files/Final%20Signed%20OMB-OSTP%20Memo%20-%20ST%20Priorities.pdf).
- The section on virtual organizations will be revised to more strongly emphasize research, in contrast to only building infrastructure.

UC Berkeley Team to Receive First ACM/IEEE A. Richard Newton Technical Impact Award in Electronic Design Automation
The award will be presented to these authors of the seminal paper, "MIS: A Multiple-Level Logic Optimization System" at the opening session of the 46th Design Automation Conference on July 28th.
The paper, having established the groundwork of modern multi-level logic synthesis, has made major contributions to research, education and industrial practice.

"A Cyber-physical Systems Security Workshop will be held on July 22-24 in Newark, NJ. This workshop is sponsored by the Science & Technology Directorate, DHS; National Cyber Security Division, DHS, National Institute of Standards and Technology; US Department of Energy, Office of the Secretary of Defense, DoD; Operations, Plans & Requirements, HQ USAF; and Logistics, Installations, & Mission Support, HQ USAF."
"In addition to presentations of selected position papers submitted by researchers from academic, industry, and national Laboratories, we also have four panels: industry, sectors, NSF, and venture capital firms. These panels provide a forum for the respective representatives to discuss their perspectives on the current state of the security of cyber-physical systems; where should the technology and science be in 5-10 years from now; why we are not there now? What are, in their opinion, some of the research challenges that are in the way of us being there now; and why do we need to be there? That is, what legitimate case that can be made to justify the needed R&D investments. Furthermore, we are in discussion with the All Hazards Consortium to have representatives from their 9 member states (NY, NJ, VA, WV, MD, PA, DC, etc.) join in a “States/Local” Panel."
