We invite you to apply to participate in the NSF Broader Impacts for 
Research and Discovery Summit,, to be held June 
21-23, 2010, in D.C.  The Broader Impacts Summit is being sponsored by 
the NSF CISE - Computer Information Science and Engineering division and 
will have participants representing the three CISE Division research 
communities (Information & Intelligent Systems, Computer and Network 
Systems, and Computing and Communication Foundations).

The goal of the Broader Impacts Summit is to discuss, present, and 
subsequently develop guidance materials for the NSF CISE research 
community on how to effectively integrate activities that address the 
NSF broader impacts review criteria into their research proposals and 
subsequent research. To meet this goal, we are hosting a 2-day summit 
where (1) several examples of projects with superior broader impacts 
will be presented and (2) working groups will meet to discuss and 
document current/future broader impact activities and ways in which 
infrastructure can be established to make it easier for NSF 
investigators to improve the broader impacts of their work.

Applications will consist of a brief (no more than 1 page, 12 point 
font) description of your interest in NSF's broader impact criteria.  
Your description could also include project(s) you have done, or 
projects that you would like to do, to increase the broad impact of  
your research. For any project discussed, please also state your method 
(or proposed method) of evaluating the impact of your activities, as   
well as any outcome from completed evaluations.  In addition, you must 

Deadline for applications:  Friday, April 30th, Midnight EDT
Notification:  by Thursday, May 20th

We expect that participants will stay for the full 2-day summit and 
participate in the working groups. A tentative agenda is below. A web 
site for the Summit is under construction at

As you know, the five NSF broader impact criteria are:
       1.  Advance science while promoting teaching, training and learning;
       2.  Broaden participation of underrepresented groups;
       3.  Enhance infrastructure for research and education;
       4.  Provide broad dissemination to enhance scientific and 
technological understanding; and
       5.  Highlight the benefit to society.

This Broader Impacts Summit is being organized by Tracy Camp (Colorado 
School of Mines) and Juan Gilbert (Clemson University), with the 
assistance of Samir Khuller (University of Maryland) and Judy Goldsmith 
(University of Kentucky), and the guidance of the following NSF officials:
       Ty Znati, Division Director, CISE/CNS
       Harriet G. Taylor, Program Director, CISE/CNS
       Pamela Jennings, Program Director, CISE/IIS
       Tracy Kimbrel, Program Director, CISE/CCF
       Susan Winter, Program Director, CISE/OCI
       Kera Johnson, Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellow, CISE/CNS
       Camsie Matis, Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellow, CISE/CNS

As mentioned, the Summit will take place in D.C., June 21st-23rd, 2010. 
We expect the Summit to begin on June 21st at 7pm and end on June 23rd 
at 4pm. Most of the sessions will be held at the Waterview conference 
center (which is centrally located in Rosslyn, across the Key bridge 
from Georgetown).
Summit attendees will stay at the adjacent Palomar hotel.

Attendance will be limited to a maximum of 120 participants. We expect 
approximately 100 of the participants to be CISE researchers and 20 to 
be NSF officials. Approximately half of the CISE researchers are being 
invited to attend; the other half will be determined through this 
submission process. Reasonable travel expenses are expected to be 
covered by an NSF
