The DEMS program supports innovative, fundamental research intended to lead to new paradigms of design, development, and insertion of advanced engineering material systems. Fundamental research that develops and creatively integrates theory, processing/manufacturing, data/informatics, experimental, and/or computational approaches with rigorous engineering design principles, approaches, and tools to enable the accelerated design and development of materials is welcome. Due: DEMS will begin to accept proposals with the fall (September 1 - October 1) CMMI unsolicited proposal submission window. Future submissions will be accepted during both windows for unsolicited proposals. (September 1 - October 1 and January 15 - February 15). Beginning in FY2013, CAREER proposals will be accepted in these programmatic areas as well.
