NSF ITEST Conference & Workshop Proposals


Do you know ITEST supports Conference or Workshop Projects?

ITEST supports conference or workshop projects aimed at advancing the ITEST program goals, objectives and pillars as described in the solicitation. All proposals in this category should address the need for the work, why it is timely, and the expected contributions to understanding or advancing the question, issue, or topic. Proposals must demonstrate command of the literature and the challenges and opportunities related to current practice of the topic selected. They must also describe the expertise and selection criteria of participants, include a conceptual framework, a draft agenda, and the expected outcomes or products resulting from the conference or workshop activities. Finally, all conference/workshop proposals should discuss how these outcomes will be useful and disseminated to the research and practitioner communities and the broader public.

Interested PIs are encouraged to contact POs with their ideas by sending a one-pager to DRLITEST@nsf.gov. For general guidance, follow the PAPPG guidance for preparing Conference Proposals. The "Conference" type of proposal should be selected in Research.gov or Grants.gov.

Up to one year, up to $100,000

Conference or workshop proposals may be submitted anytime during the year and reviewed accordingly.
