3 The NSF budget has been released for Physics Division cut by 10% from FY2012 NSF priorities have been publicized (2/27/13 Notice on NSF website): Protect commitments to NSFs core mission and maintain existing awards; Protect the NSF workforce; and Protect STEM human capital development programs RHIC Users Meeting, Thursday June 27, 20133

5 Denise Caldwell has been named as the Physics Division Director, replacing Joe Dehmer Brad Keister was the acting Deputy Division Director, now Jim Whitmore while they search for permanent DDD National search for a permanent DDD ongoing See the Dear Colleague Letter on NSF Physics Division website 5 RHIC Users Meeting, Thursday June 27, 2013 Current Experimental Nuclear Physics Program: Brad Keister Gail Dodge Alice Mignerey (part-time)

6 Two types of awards: development and acquisition Contact program officers well ahead of submission to discuss (avoid pitfalls) Limited submissions from each university Maximum award is $4 million; awards above $1 million must compete across the entire foundation < 1M compete within the division Will be judged in part by merit of science that will be done with instrument Solicitation Deadline: Jan. 23, 2014 May 29 – 31, 2013 Jefferson Lab Users Meeting6

7 Available to NSF grantees to fund an undergraduate student (US citizen or permanent resident) for the summer. Usually $5,000 Submit in Fastlane as a supplement to current grant. RHIC Users Meeting, Thursday June 27,

8 Must include excellent research proposal as well as excellent educational plan There are eligibility requirements: e.g., must be assistant professor, untenured 5 year awards, $400,000 minimum Full proposal deadline: July 24, 2013 (for MPS) Contact program officer for information/advice ahead of time (budget, scope) Solicitation: PECASE nominees are chosen from eligible CAREER winners RHIC Users Meeting, Thursday June 27,

9 Starting in 2013, the Physics Division will accept proposals to a new program in accelerator science. Target Date is November 29, Intended to fund accelerator science, not R&D for specific projects. Collaboration with a national lab (e.g. prototyping) is fine. Program Description is now posted ( ). 9 RHIC Users Meeting, Thursday June 27, 2013 APPI: Accelerator Physics and Physics Instrumentation

10 Some money in the Physics Division is set aside for instrumentation. Hopefully this pot will grow so that we will have a real mid-scale fund. For now, it is OK to request equipment money as part of a regular grant, and we will consider that for separate instrumentation funding. Larger projects over several years can also be funded with this money (e.g., nEDM). Contact us for more information. The process for considering these larger projects is still being worked out. You cannot apply to APPI directly; all proposals must go through the program. May 29 – 31, 2013 Jefferson Lab Users Meeting10

11 MPS, ENG, and OCI have recently established a new cross-directorate program in Computational and Data-Enabled Science and Engineering (CDS&E: PD ). The goal of the CDS&E program is to identify and capitalize on opportunities for major scientific and engineering breakthroughs through new computational and data analysis approaches Physics at the Information Frontier program, which includes support for data-enabled science, community research networks, and new computational infrastructure, as well as for next-generation computing. It focuses on cyber-infrastructure for the disciplines supported by the Physics Division while encouraging broader impacts on other disciplines. Deadline: Nov. 29, 2013 RHIC Users Meeting, Thursday June 27,

12 The Physics Frontiers Centers (PFC) program supports university-based centers and institutes where the collective efforts of a larger group of individuals can enable transformational advances in the most promising research areas. Preliminary Proposal Deadline: Aug. 5, 2013 Full Proposal Deadline: Jan. 27, 2014 Solicitation: RHIC Users Meeting, Thursday June 27,

13 Funded by Domestic Nuclear Detection Office Five topic areas: 1.Scientific and Engineering Approaches for Extremely Low- cost Monitoring for Radiological and Nuclear Threats 2.Deterrence Theory and Analytics 3.Scientific and Engineering of Threat Detection through Data Fusion, Informatics and/or Non-Radiological Signal/Signature Exploitation 4.Science and Engineering of Nuclear Forensics 5.Integrated Multi-disciplinary Approaches to Clear Objects from Nuclear Threats – single large award Full proposal deadline: July 10, 2013 Solicitation RHIC Users Meeting, Thursday June 27,

14 Instituted in 2012, NSFs Career-Life Balance (CLB) Initiative is an ambitious, ten-year initiative that will build on the best of family-friendly practices among individual NSF programs to expand them to activities NSF-wide. This agency-level approach will help attract, retain, and advance graduate students, postdoctoral students, and early-career researchers in STEM fields. See the Dear Colleague Letter: NSF for information about requesting supplements to CAREER awards. The Physics Division will consider such requests from all awardees. Contact your program officer for information. There is a small pot of money available to encourage broadening participation and address these types of issues. RHIC Users Meeting, Thursday June 27,

15 Keep program officers informed of major new results. These results may not appear on the NSF web page, but we need them to respond to inquiries by management, to make the case for nuclear physics, Committee of Visitor reports, etc... NSF support is still a vital component of relativistic heavy ion research with > 1M/year awarded to PIs in continuing grants this year. Programs such as MRI provide a means to enhance nuclear physics intrastructure RHIC Users Meeting, Thursday June 27,
