Topical Workshops, Symposia, and Conferences (ROSES 2019)

Funding Agency:
National Aeronautics and Space Administration

This program element solicits proposals for topical workshops, symposia, conferences, and other scientific/technical meetings (herein referred to as "events") that advance the goals and objectives of the following SMD Divisions: Earth Science, Heliophysics, and Planetary Science.

Until this program element is amended to specify Astrophysics criteria, priorities, etc., the Astrophysics Division will not accept TWSC proposals.

As long as there is an interested SMD program/funder, proposals that contribute to SMD's cross-divisional science, technology and exploration goals also are solicited. Proposals are not limited to traditional in-person meetings of scientists, but may also include requests for support of other methods of bringing together members of the scientific communities relevant to NASA, such as online discussion forums and webbased collaboration portals, especially in support of a traditional event. Proposals for multiple related events should be well justified. 

This program element is directed at and strictly limited to scientific and technical events of interest to SMD, and not education or public outreach conferences. Moreover, this program element does not support any type of research projects; course development; and/or scholarships or fellowships. Please note that travel or logistical support for students to participate in the proposed event is not a scholarship or fellowship.

Proposals may be submitted at any time until March 27, 2020.
