Thursday, 12:00 – 12:45, Room 303 Student Union Building
Alex Pszenny and Anne-Marie Schmoltner will make a ~20 minute presentation geared
mainly for new/young scientists with relatively little familiarity with (US-based) NSF and/or
experience preparing NSF funding proposals, although veteran NSF-supported investigators
may find portions of it to be of some interest too. Questions will be welcome. More details
6) Young Scientist Vision and Wrap-Up
Following the tradition of some previous IGAC meetings, the Young Science Program
Committee will be looking for eager and interested Young Scientists who have strong and
constructive opinions about the present and future directions of IGAC research. We would
like to see Young Scientists organize themselves over the course of the week to produce a
VISION for IGAC research and a 5-minute Wrap-Up statement which they will present at
the Thursday Banquet. Email ys AT icacgp-igac-2010.ca if you are interested in this.
