Campus Census on Researchers interested in Big Data and Health

There is a growing community of scholars interested in "Big Data" and issues related to health and healthcare on this campus.  There are also several campus initiatives to foster "Big Data" collaborations, including the Big Data and Health Cluster and Social Innovation and Urban Opportunity Lab (SOUL Lab). To better facilitate collaboration​, The Big Data and Health Cluster and Social Innovation and Urban Opportunity Lab (SOUL Lab) invite faculty to respond to a short survey​ to connect with these on-going initiatives.

If you would like to know more about this survey, please contact Dr. Sepideh Modrek, Assistant Profressor of Business,

Dear Colleague Letter: Pursuing Meaningful Actions in Support of Broadening Participation in Computing (BPC)

The National Science Foundation's (NSF) Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) is committed to broadening the participation of underrepresented populations in computing and closely-related disciplines. Indeed, CISE supports meaningful actions that address the longstanding underrepresentation of various populations including women, minorities (African Americans/Blacks, Hispanic Americans, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, Native Pacific Islanders, and persons from economically disadvantaged backgrounds), and persons with disabilities, in the computing field.

With this Dear Colleague Letter (DCL), CISE announces a pilot effort to enhance the community's awareness of and barriers to broadening participation in computing (BPC), as well as to provide information and resources to principal investigators (PIs) so that they can develop interest, skills, and activities in support of BPC at all levels (K-12, undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate). This effort builds on CISE's long history of support for BPC. For example, the BPC Alliances are national and regional collaborations of academic institutions, educators, professional societies, community organizations, and industrial partners that serve to create the best practices, educational resources, advocacy networks, and forums needed to broadly address issues of engagement and education across the K-20 academic pipeline. It also aligns with the recommendations of the CISE Advisory Committee contained in a Strategic Plan for Broadening Participation.

Dear Colleague Letter: Removal of Target Dates for Geospace Science Programs

The Division of Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences (AGS) will eliminate target dates for three solicitations in the Geospace Science Section — Coupling, Energetics, and Dynamics of Atmospheric Regions (CEDAR), Geospace Environment Modeling (GEM), and Solar, Heliospheric, and INterplanetary Environment (SHINE). Although these programs traditionally accepted new proposals throughout the latter half of the year, new proposals should only be submitted after October 1, 2017. This date was selected due to relocation of the NSF staff and services to a new headquarters building in Alexandria, VA, and to better align these programs with the fiscal year. The Program Solicitations for each of the programs listed above will be updated to reflect these changes. It is also important to note that the core Solar Terrestrial, Aeronomy, and Magnetosphere programs will continue to accept proposals at any time.
