Vanderbilt University invites you to participate in a summer seminar for humanities scholars working with XML documents (such as TEI, EAD, or MODS).

The XQuery Summer Institute is designed for scholars with basic experience marking up texts who would like to acquire advanced skills in how to query and computationally analyze XML documents.

We welcome applications from archivists, faculty members, librarians, alt-ac professionals, and advanced graduate students. Over the course of two weeks, we will teach you how to program in XQuery, a language designed for querying and manipulating XML documents. You will leave the Institute knowing how to maximize the value of your XML encoding.

The Institute will take place from Monday, June 9 to Friday, June 20 in 2014 on the campus of Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. It will be led by six instructors with experience in the digital humanities (see http://xqueryinstitute.org/instructors), including Jonathan Robie, Lead Editor of the XQuery and XPath specifications at the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

There are no registration costs to the Institute thanks to generous support from the Office of Digital Humanities at the National Endowment for the Humanities (see the announcement of Institutes for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities http://www.neh.gov/divisions/odh/grant-news/announcing-3-institutes-advanced-topics-awards-july-2013). We will also provide subventions for participants’ travel, lodging, and meals. Participation is limited to twelve. Applications are due by February 14, 2014.

Please join us!  Take your XML skills to the next level in Nashville this summer. For information about the Institute and the application process, see http://xqueryinstitute.org/. Questions? Please email Clifford Anderson, Director for Scholarly Communications, at Vanderbilt University: clifford.anderson@vanderbilt.edu.

Nov 4, 2013 — Baton Rouge, LA — The Water Institute of the Gulf seeks proposals for numerical modeling of fish and shellfish community dynamics in Louisiana estuaries as part of a number of modeling improvements being conducted in support of Louisiana's 2017 Coastal Master Plan. Model development and testing will initially focus on community interactions among species within the Barataria and Pontchartrain Basins. Calibrated and validated models will be integrated, to the extent possible, with the landscape models (i.e., Integrated Compartment Models) being developed by master plan modeling teams.  The modeling suite will be used to provide CPRA with estimates of fish and shellfish community response to certain kinds of restoration and protection projects as part of the development of the 2017 Coastal Master Plan.

LaSPACE is now accepting proposals for our Research Enhancement Awards’ (REA) program, which provides small 'seed' grants for scientific research at colleges and universities that are participating members of the consortium. Particularly, the REA program is aimed at the emerging researcher and/or the established researcher who wishes to initiate a new research direction for the development of projects, contacts, and collaborations that will bring Louisiana scientists into the mainstream of NASA related research, thereby increasing the chance to fully and successfully compete in the aerospace R & D marketplace.

 Please take note of the details listed below.

·         Proposals will be accepted until Wednesday, October 16, 2013

·         We hope to have external reviews completed and be able to announce the awards by Wednesday, December 11, 2013

·         We anticipate awarded projects will begin at the start of the Spring 2014 semester

·         Complete proposal guidelines for the REA competition are available online at http://laspace.lsu.edu/rfp/index.php#REA

·         Forms within the Guidelines have been recently updated. Proposals must follow the current guidelines and utilize the current forms. Proposals submitted under previous guidelines/outdated forms will NOT be reviewed.

Beginning March 18, 2013, the NSF will enhance the FastLane system to begin automated compliance checking of all required sections of proposals. This will bring NSF systems in line with long-standing proposal preparation requirements as outlined in the NSF Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide (PAPPG) ( Chapter II.C.2 of the Grant Proposal Guide (GPG)).

The GPG-required sections of a proposal include: Project Summary * Budget Justification Project Description Current and Pending Support References Cited Facilities, Equipment and Other Resources Biographical Sketch(es) Data Management Plan * Budget Postdoctoral Mentoring Plan (if applicable)* * These proposal sections are already being auto-compliance checked by FastLane.

Proposal submission instructions for conferences, symposia or workshops; international travel grants; or program solicitations may deviate from the GPG instructions. If the submission instructions do not require one of the above sections to be provided, proposers will need to insert text or upload a document in that section of the proposal that states, “Not Applicable.” Doing so will enable FastLane to accept the proposal.

Additionally, proposers providing Biographical Sketches and/or Current and Pending Support information for Principal Investigators (PIs), co-PI(s) or Senior Personnel in a single PDF file associated with the PI, must insert text or upload a document in that section of the proposal that states, “Not Applicable,” for any co-PI or Senior Personnel so that FastLane will accept the proposal.

PIs will receive a warning message if any of the GPG-required sections is missing, however, the PI will still be able to submit the proposal to the organization’s Sponsored Project Office (SPO). If the SPO attempts to submit proposal that is missing any of the GPG required sections, they will receive an error message identifying the missing section(s), and FastLane will prevent submission to NSF. After obtaining all required sections, the SPO may submit the proposal to NSF in accordance with the established deadline date policy.

Proposals submitted through Grants.gov must include all GPG required sections or include a document stating that the section is “Not Applicable.

Additional information will be posted on the NSF website at: http://www.nsf.gov/bfa/dias/policy/autocompliance.jsp Please contact policy@nsf.gov for any further questions.

NSF issued the following notice on the impact of the FY 2013 Sequestration Order on NSF awards.

As you may know, since passage of the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, the President has been working with Congress to reach agreement on a balanced deficit reduction plan. If an agreement is not reached by the end of this month, the President will be required to issue an order on March 1, 2013 that will implement across-the-board spending cuts known as sequestration. As a result of this expected sequestration order, the Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 appropriations of the National Science Foundation (NSF) will be reduced by 5 percent.

We intend to make the necessary FY 2013 reductions with as little disruption as possible to established commitments, and are using the following set of core principles to guide our sequestration planning activities: • Protect commitments to NSF's core mission and maintain existing awards; • Protect the NSF workforce; and • Protect STEM human capital development programs.

By adhering to these core principles and the government-wide guidance issued by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Memorandum 13-03, Planning for Uncertainty with Respect to Fiscal Year 2013 Budgetary Resources, we expect to be able to accommodate the sequestration reductions in ways that minimize, to the extent possible, the impact on our mission, both short- and long-term. Because the sequestration order takes effect at mid-year, its impact is somewhat greater than might otherwise be the case. At NSF, the major impact of sequestration will be seen in reductions to the number of new research grants and cooperative agreements awarded in FY 2013. We anticipate that the total number of new research grants will be reduced by approximately 1,000.

In keeping with the first core principle listed above, and to assure continuity and minimize disruption of scientific research, all continuing grant increments in FY 2013 will be awarded, as scheduled, and there will be no impact on existing NSF standard grants. The same intent applies to annual increments for cooperative agreements, though overall funding constraints may require reductions to certain major investments. These will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

It is also important to advise you that the Foundation is currently operating under a Continuing Resolution (CR) that will expire on March 27, 2013. Once NSF has appropriations in place beyond March 27th, we will revise this notice as necessary.

In FY 2012, NSF received 48,623 proposals and provided 11,534 awards (24% funding rate).
