|Workshop on Opportunities in Materials Theory||
|October 25 - 27    |
2004 WorkshopThe fourth biannual workshop on new areas of opportunity in materials theory will be held on October 25-27, 2004 at the National Science Foundation in Arlington, VA. This workshop will feature talks that span much of the materials theory community. Post-doctoral associates and junior faculty working in materials theory are especially encouraged to participate. A limited number of travel assistance grants are available for this group. Other interested researchers, departmental and university representatives, and program directors from NSF and other funding agencies are also encouraged to attend.
On Monday, October 25, the workshop will commence in the early afternoon. This day will be of particular interest to young investigators interested in obtaining NSF funding. The program directors for Materials Theory, in addition to other NSF program directors, will present information on funding opportunities, proposal writing, and proposal evaulation. There will be time for questions about funding. Following this, there will be a reception and public lecture.
Scientific presentations will be given on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 26 & 27. These presentations will focus on some of the exciting research being done within materials theory (condensed matter theory, theoretical solid state chemistry and theoretical materials science), as well as future opportunities. There will be time set aside for discussion of scientific or funding issues. The program on Tuesday will conclude with a reception.
The workshop will be held in Room 375 in the NSF building. This is a secure building and passes are required for admission. All registered participants should pick up their pass at the NSF reception area before proceeding to the workshop room. Passes should be returned at departure.
Laptops: All computers brought into the NSF facility must be scanned for viruses before being connected to the NSF network. If you are planning to connect your computer to the network, bring it to Room 357 (IT Help) to have it scanned.
Organizing CommitteeParticipants of previous WOMTs, Daryl Hess (NSF), Bruce Taggart (NSF), and Amy Liu (Georgetown University).
