About the series
At the Radisson RTP, on November 1, 2007, a one-day workshop will be held to introduce participants to the CDI initiative and suggest possible roads for development of proposals. The activities will include:
- A presentation by NSF officers concerning the new initiative, followed by a question & answer session.
- Overview discussions by panels on issues and challenges in the three areas listed above.
- Presentations on CDI-type problems from industry, national laboratories, or other sciences that might suggest interesting roads towards collaboration with mathematical and statistical scientists to pursue the problems.
This is part of a coordinated effort of the NSF Mathematical Sciences Institutes to inform the mathematical and statistical communities about this initiative and to facilitate the development of research proposals; see the website for activities at the various institutes. The Division of Mathematical Sciences at the National Science Foundation is strongly supportive of the involvement of mathematical and cross-disciplinary groups in research projects connected with CDI.
