Computing Community Consortium Blog

The goal of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community to debate longer range, more audacious research challenges; to build consensus around research visions; to evolve the most promising visions toward clearly defined initiatives; and to work with the funding organizations to move challenges and visions toward funding initiatives. The purpose of this blog is to provide a more immediate, online mechanism for dissemination of visioning concepts and community discussion/debate about them.

NSF/DIMACS Workshop for Aspiring PIs in Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace

June 5th, 2014 / in Uncategorized / by Helen Wright



The Center for Discrete Mathematics & Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS), founded as a National Science Foundation (NSF) Science and Technology Center, has announced a one-day workshop designed for researchers who aspire to participate in NSF’s Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC) program. The goal of this workshop is to help aspiring SaTC PIs understand what NSF (and NSF review panels) are looking for in reviewing SaTC proposals, with the goal of increasing the quality of submitted proposals and, in turn, the percentage of proposals funded. 

The workshop will be held in San Diego, California at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel on August 17, 2014

The agenda for the workshop will include:

  • Brief talks by NSF Program Officers (POs) on their goals for the SaTC Program, and the opportunity for participants to pose questions to the POs.
  • Several research talks by current SaTC PIs.
  • A panel of current SaTC PIs on what it takes to formulate and carry out a SaTC research agenda.
  • “Ice-breaker” small group discussions to foster discussion in small settings.
  • Discussions of SaTC scope.
  • Discussions of common mistakes made in proposals.

Videos from the 2012 workshop are available.

Participation is by invitation only. The application to participate is due by Wednesday, June 25, 2014. Application information can be found here.
