NSF’s Knowledge and Distributed Intelligence (KDI) (on NSF website) 
The recent explosive growth in computer power and connectivity is reshaping relationships among people and organizations, and transforming the processes of discovery, learning, and communication. As a result of the technological advances we have unprecedented opportunities for providing rapid and efficient access to enormous amounts of knowledge and information; for studying vastly more complex systems than was hitherto possible; and for advancing in fundamental ways our understanding of learning and intelligent behavior in living and engineered systems. NSF’s Knowledge and Distributed Intelligence (KDI) theme is a Foundation-wide effort to promote the realization of these opportunities.
Research in the North Pacific Ocean (on U.S. GLOBEC website) 
Methods and Models for Integrated Assessments (on NSF website) 
An interdisciplinary program the intention of which is to “sponsor high quality, fundamental and methodological research that advances the development of methodologies and models that will integrate or couple component systems”.
Biocomplexity: Phase I (on NSF website) 
An announcement of opportunity exists to support integrated research on the functional interrelationships between microorganisms and biological, chemical, geological, physical and social systems.
