The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), a non-regulatory agency of the United States Department of Commerce, is conducting this prize competition to spur the development of innovative mobile applications that utilize NIST datasets to help better share the data and provide a useful service to those who can best use it. NIST Standard Reference Data (SRD) are well-documented numeric data used in technical problem-solving, research, and development; over 100 types are available for use in scientific and engineering applications, with over 19 million downloads recorded annually (excluding web-based time services). Most of these data sets are currently freely accessible through web-based interfaces or are made available on CD upon request. Mobile applications that can readily access and utilize this data will help drive further innovation and support research through easy and low-barrier access to the results of U.S. tax-payer funded research. Participants in this prize competition are invited to submit Apps (as defined in this Notice) that use eligible NIST Standard Reference Data (SRD) datasets listed on the Event Web site, https:// nistdata.challengepost.com. These eligible datasets pertain to physics and chemistry and are frequently used by high school, college, and graduate students in advanced chemistry and physics coursework.
