About this event
The National Science Foundation (NSF) and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory on Long Island, N.Y., will hold a one-day workshop on Wednesday, June 4, 2014. This workshop is primarily designed for researchers and educators less experienced in proposing to the NSF; however, more experienced proposers and NSF grantees may well find the workshop useful and informative.
It is our hope that events such as this will stimulate new interest in NSF programs at institutions that have not been among our traditional customers, as well as at premier research institutions. We want to extend an invitation to you and to anyone else at your institution who would like to attend this workshop and learn more about the NSF and its programs.
The workshop will provide an overview of the Foundation, its mission, priorities, and budget. It will cover the NSF proposal and merit review process and NSF programs that cut across disciplines. Additionally, representatives from the seven NSF directorates and the Office of International and Integrative Activities will make presentations on their programs and will be available informally and in breakout sessions for discussions of potential research proposals.
The workshop will be held in the Grace Auditorium on the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory campus. There is a registration fee of $150.00 for this workshop. Accommodations are also available. You can register using the link below. Please register by Friday, May 23, 2014. You can direct inquiries regarding this workshop to Dana Lynn Swenson (firstname.lastname@example.org or 516-367-6848).
