Noteworthy goal of the program:

Research is needed in: (a) design of new programming languages, program logics, type theories, and language mechanisms that support new computational and data models, raise the level of abstraction, and have programmability, verifiability, modularity, compositionality, and scalable performance as design goals;

Not clear why ?new programming languages? are needed to accomplish what is mostly already available.  Maybe they would fund Damian to have him explain this to them.
