Invitation to a National Science Foundation Workshop at the University of Toledo, September 21, 2010

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 Science and Engineering and the Office of Cyberinfrastructure will make presentations on their programs and will also be available informally and in breakout sessions for discussions of potential research proposals. 

While the primary focus of this workshop is on junior faculty and others starting or restarting a research career, researchers with more experience with NSF will also find it useful and informative.  Please share this invitation with anyone at your institution who might be interested in attending.

The workshop will be held at the Dana Conference Center (adjacent to the Hilton Hotel) on the University of Toledo Health Science Campus. There is a $25.00 registration fee for this workshop payable by cash or check the day of the event.  Please register by Monday, September 13, 2010. Registration is limited, so please register early.
