National Science Foundation: Coastlines and People Scoping Sessions
The National Science Foundation (NSF) invites applications for the Coastlines and People (CoPe) Scoping Sessions, three regional workshops and one virtual workshop, held concurrently. These sessions will convene from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on 26-27 September 2018, and 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on 28 September 2018.
Workshop sites include San Diego, California; Chicago, Illinois; and Atlanta, Georgia, with a fourth virtual workshop held on mountain time. Due to the highly interactive nature of these workshops, attendees must be present for the full duration of the sessions.
The goals of these scoping sessions will be to better understand the research priorities related to advancing understanding of the impacts of coastal environmental variability and natural hazards on populated coastal regions, and to identify priorities for research initiatives focused on coastal regions.
NSF encourages applicants from a broad range of disciplines, institution types, and career levels. Individuals with expertise on coastal research focused on the Great Lakes are also encouraged to apply.
