“Shut Up & Write”

Last week, I received lots of mail about ending post-summer regret. Many of you were able to make a strategic plan for the summer without difficulty, but it was the development of a support system that left you confused. All the queries seemed to all boil down to three questions: 1) What types of writing groups exist?

A2RU Reports Increase for NEH/NEA/CPB/IMLS

May 3, 2017 2:37 pm

Dear Colleagues,

As you probably know by now, the NEA, NEH, CPB, and IMLS budgets look like they will be retained, and in most instances slightly increased for the rest of the fiscal year. This is fantastic on all fronts and I can’t help but feel that a2ru played a small part, as did each citizen who made calls and wrote letters. Truly a bipartisan victory. Below is a nice chart outlining the omnibus proposal budget numbers for many agencies of interest for FY17.

Thanks to all!

Iowa State Administrative Searches

April 17, 2017 9:46 am

Colleagues:

As you may know, Dave Holger, who serves as both Associate Provost for Academic Programs and Dean of the Graduate College, will be retiring effective June 30, 2017. Dave has served Iowa State for more than 40 years in a wide variety of capacities, including department chair, associate dean, and Faculty Senate president, and I will personally miss his counsel and passion for excellence at Iowa State.

We will proceed immediately to search internally for the associate provost and graduate dean positions. Descriptions of each position are attached to this message.

The associate provost search will be led by Beth McNeil, dean of Library Services. Sarah Rajala, dean of the College of Engineering, will lead the search for the Graduate College dean. Members of the search committees will be posted in the coming days on the SVPP website. I encourage you to nominate candidates for these positions; nominations may be sent to the respective search committee chair (mcneil@iastate.edu or rajala@iastate.edu), or to me (wickert@iastate.edu).

(From NSF) The 1st US-Japan Workshop on Collaborative Global Research on Applying Information Technology

June 5-6, 2017, Atlanta, GA, USA (co-located with IEEE ICDCS’17)

Dear Researchers,

You are cordially invited to submit papers or whitepapers for consideration to participate in the US-Japan Workshop on Collaborative Global Research on Applying Information Technology. This workshop will bring together researchers from around the world to discuss experiences, challenges, and opportunities in transnational and international collaborative research on information technology (IT) and IT-supported applications, with focus on active collaborations between the United States (U.S.) and Japan. The workshop will provide opportunities for participants to interact directly and promote collaborative research activities. The collaboration is expected to achieve scientific knowledge that would be difficult to obtain individually.

Workshop attendance will be by invitation only, following response to this call as outlined in the Call for Papers [http://icdcs2017.gatech.edu/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/CFP_US_JP_Workshop.pdf]. Prospective attendees are expected to be investigators on funded research projects, and should submit papers or whitepaper for consideration by the program committee. Workshop organizers are requesting funding from NSF and JST to support partially the travel costs and registration fees of invited attendees from the U.S. and Japan. Principal Investigators of projects in relevant NSF and JST programs are strongly encouraged to apply. Additionally, early career researchers and underrepresented minorities are encouraged to apply.

Topics of interest for collaboration include, but are not limited to: Big Data Fundamental Technologies and Applications; Smart and Connected Communities (SCC); Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) and Internet of Things (IoT); Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. For submission details, please refer to the CFP [http://icdcs2017.gatech.edu/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/CFP_US_JP_Workshop.pdf]. We apologize for the short deadlines, but hope that you will consider participating.

  • March 25, 2017 (Early Submission Deadline for refereed papers).
  • April 28, 2017 (Final Submission Deadline for whitepapers only).

Funding support in the form of travel expenses and partial workshop registration for invited participants may be available, contingent on the availability of funding from NSF and JST.
