The Louisiana Board of Regents and Louisiana EPSCOR are planning to submit a joint proposal to the National Science Foundation and BP to fund a research conference designed to address the breath of scientific, technical, and other issues raised by the the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.   

A memo from Kerry Davidson, Deputy Commissioner for Sponsored Programs at the Board of Regents, and Michael Khonsari, EPSCoR Project Director, is attached.  The attachment also includes a two page white paper submitted to NSF by Dr. Khonsari describing the proposed conference.

The Board of Regents is inviting suggestions related to the content of the proposal and the organization, themes and desired outcomes of the proposed conference.  If you have any insight to provide, please submit your ideas to me at (vcresearch@uno.edu )  by noon on June 7, 2010.
