The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Oklahoma Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) will hold a one-day workshop Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2013, at The University of Tulsa’s Helmerich Hall in Tulsa.
The workshop will provide an overview of the foundation, its mission, priorities and funding opportunities. It will cover the NSF proposal and merit review process and NSF programs that cut across disciplines. Additionally, representatives from the seven NSF directorates, the Office of International Science and Engineering and the Office of Integrative Activities will make presentations on their programs. The representatives will also host afternoon breakout sessions related to their NSF focus areas. Workshop attendees will have the opportunity to informally discuss potential research proposals with NSF staff during the afternoon session.
This workshop is primarily designed for researchers and educators who are less experienced in proposing to the NSF; however, more experienced proposers and NSF grantees may well find the workshop useful and informative.
There is no cost to participate, but registration is required. Register online at www.nsf.gov/events and click on Oklahoma EPSCoR NSF Day in the event list.The deadline to register is Dec. 21. Seating is limited.

The program is also funded through an award from the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.For more information, contact Gina Miller, outreach coordinator, at 405-744-7645 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
