About the series
The National Science Foundation and the University at Albany (SUNY) will be holding a one-day workshop on Wednesday, October 19, 2011 in Albany, New York. 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, going forward.
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. Key officials representing each of the seven NSF program directorates, and the Office of International Science and Engineering, the Office of General Counsel, and the Office of Integrative Activities will make presentations on their programs and will also be available informally and in breakout sessions for discussions of potential research proposals.
The workshop will be held at the Campus Center on the University at Albany's main campus at 1400 Washington Avenue, Albany, NY. There no registration fee for this workshop; however, preregistration is required. You can register using the link below. Please register by Wednesday, October 12, 2011. Registration is limited, so please register early. We hope to see you there.
