NASA announces a call for graduate fellowship proposals to the NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship (NESSF) program for the 2012-2013 academic year. This call for fellowship proposals solicits applications from accredited U.S. universities on behalf of individuals pursuing Master of Science (M.Sc.) or Doctoral (Ph.D.) degrees in Earth and space sciences, or related disciplines. The purpose of NESSF is to ensure continued training of a highly qualified workforce in disciplines needed to achieve NASA's scientific goals. Awards resulting from the competitive selection will be made in the form of training grants to the respective universities. The deadline for NEW applications is February 1, 2012, and the deadline for RENEWAL applications is March 15, 2012. The NESSF call for proposals and submission instructions are located at the NESSF 12 solicitation index page at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ - click on "Solicitations" then click on "Open Solicitations" then select the "NESSF 12" announcement.

The University of New Orleans Department of Computer Science and the Greater New Orleans Center for Information Assurance (GNOCIA) recently received two task orders from the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic (SSC Atlantic) totaling $684,925. The orders are to study Cloud Computing as an Environment ($207,178) and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) as a Service ($477,747). The work is being conducted in association with a local business partner, Geocent, and continues the university’s support of the shared services center in the UNO Research and Technology Park. The objective of the Cloud Computing project is to setup and configure a working cloud infrastructure. The setup of the cloud infrastructure is intended to support the research of a service delivery model and demonstrate the capabilities of moving programs into a cloud environment. Once the cloud computing project has been demonstrated the government will transition to a production environment where clients using the share-services facility can access their software programs from anywhere in a secure, cloud computing environment. The goal of the Service Oriented Architecture project is to design a Platform as a Service (PaaS) which can provide remote clients with a complete IT infrastructure as a set of services which are capable of running their applications over the Internet. Service Oriented Architecture will enable hosting of clients’ applications without requiring the client to change the ownership of their data or their business processes. This model will yield significant cost savings on hardware and software for the client. UNO Vice Chancellor for Research Dr. Scott Whittenburg is the project director. Investigators are Drs. Roussev, Tu, Richard III and Abdelguerfi.

The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) is soliciting applications from interested undergraduate students and faculty mentors at all Louisiana universities and colleges. UROP, established in 1992 by the Louisiana Sea Grant (LSG) College Program, offers the Louisiana undergraduate community funding to support hands-on research experience in marine and coastal resource issues. Previously funded projects have dealt with topics such as coastal ecology, fisheries, aquaculture, environmental engineering, and genetics. A maximum of ten projects will be funded for the period March 2012 to December 2012; each will receive $1500-2500 to cover student wages, supplies, and necessary travel. Both student wages and academic credit may be earned concurrently if the policies of your institution allow this practice. Full-time undergraduate students at all Louisiana colleges and universities are eligible. A written final report of research accomplishments and findings is required. Students are also encouraged both to present their findings at regional, national and international conferences and to publish in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Applications will be accepted until 16 December 2011. An Application Form and complete information can be found at the UROP website (click following link) Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP)

The National SBIR Fall Conference that will be held in New Orleans in November. This conference is a great opportunity for Louisiana’s small businesses and university faculty researchers to participate. The SBIR Program is a $2.5 Billion per year R&D program for small businesses. Many of these small businesses work closely with universities to conduct the research. There are 11 federal agencies that participate in the SBIR program. Representatives from all 11 agencies will be attending the conference and there will be opportunities to meet one on one with these program managers. For more info check out www.sbirla.org.

Recently your President/Chancellor may have received a letter announcing an opportunity to nominate graduate students to attend the 2012 Nobel Laureate meeting in Lindau, Germany. This year DOE, NSF, ORAU, and Mars, Inc. will nominate at least 85 graduate students to attend the meeting to be held on July 1- July 6, 2012. This program is operated by DOE’s Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education, which is managed by ORAU. ORAU will sponsor approximately up to 16 students to participate in the meeting along with the student delegation sponsored by DOE, NSF, and Mars, Inc. As an ORAU Sponsoring Institution, you are invited to make two additional nominations directly to ORAU for this program. This provides your institution the opportunity to make a total of 8 nominations for the program – two for each sponsor. As in past years, all nominations and supporting material should be submitted electronically. Additional information and the nomination form may be found at www.orau.org/lindau. Since 1951, Nobel Prize winners and students have met annually in Lindau. Each year an international group of students attend the week-long meeting. The Laureates will lecture on topics of their choice in the mornings and participate in less formal discussions with students in the afternoons and evenings. Information on the most recent meeting is available on the web at http://www.orau.org/lindau/past-mtgs/default.shtml. Please note that the eligibility criteria for the ORAU program is slightly different than for the DOE and NSF sponsored program; ORAU will accept nominations for students participating in research programs supported by public and/or private funding sources. To be eligible, students must have completed by June 2012 at least two years study toward doctoral degree in physics, or in a related discipline, but not planning a dissertation/thesis defense before December 31, 2012; be a U.S. citizen; and be currently enrolled at a university as a full-time graduate student. They must be actively participating in research in the field of physics or a related field. We share our federal partners’ interest in receiving nominations from a diverse group of students, including those underrepresented in physics (for example, women, minorities, or disabled students). All nominations must be submitted at a special website by 4:00 pm on Tuesday, November 15, 2011. Students recommended to the Lindau Meeting Council for the program will be notified by December 31, 2011. If you have any questions or need further information, please contact Monnie Champion at 865-576-3306.
