The National Science Foundation's (NSF) Directorate of Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) promotes basic research and education in the computer and information sciences and engineering, and helps maintain the nation's preeminence in these fields. The CISE Directorate largely funded the NSFNET backbone from 1987-1995. The CISE Programs section of the Web site points to information about each of the six divisions of the Directorate and the types of research each supports, as well as program solicitations when available. The About Computer Science section provides an encyclopedia of computer facts and an interesting page of pointers to interactive Internet sites. An overview of computer sciences is included, with sections on financial resources and education. CISE administration and staff information, as well as a searchable database of abstracts of awards made by the Directorate in the last several years can also be accessed. CISE supports fundamental computing research, provides access to advanced computing facilities, develops a national computing and communications network in support of research and education, and works to improve the education and human resource base for these research areas. http://www.cise.nsf.gov/ Award abstract database: http://www.cise.nsf.gov/abstract/query.htm
