The ADVANCE program office held a webinar on the preparation of ADVANCE IT Preliminary proposals and the difference between the IT and Adaptation tracks on February 1, 2017.   The presentation slides with an embedded recording of the webinar is provided below.  

IT Preliminary proposals are required in order to be invited to submit a full IT proposal.  NSF will use the merit review process to review the IT Preliminary proposals and then invite those that demonstrate potential for innovation in their strategies and research to submit full IT proposals in 2018.

Please be sure to review the ADVANCE solicitation 16-594 and the NSF's PAPPG for the official guidelines and information on preparing and submitting ADVANCE proposals.  Information on the review process is also in these documents.
