2 SIGMM-2011 Networking of MM Women: NSF Multi-media, multi-modal, multi-cultural, multi- interest, multi-connected, multi-disciplinary,... moving, changing world and MM women and NSF 2 Transformative research involves ideas, discoveries, or tools that radically change our understanding of an important existing scientific or engineering concept or educational practice or leads to the creation of a new paradigm or field of science, engineering, or education. Such research challenges current understanding or provides pathways to new frontiers. Intellectual Merit criterion: To what extent does the proposed activity suggest and explore creative, original, or potentially transformative concepts? FAQ for Potentially Transformative Research
