CRA Academic Careers Workshop
February 10 - 12, 2002
Key Bridge Marriott
Arlington, Virginia (Washington,
CRA held another in its highly
successful series of workshops for new faculty and advanced graduate students
in computer science, computer engineering, computational science, and other
computing-related disciplines. The workshop focused on practical methods for
having a successful and fulfilling academic career.
- Included talks by senior members of the two
largest funding agencies for computing research, NSF and DARPA, providing
overviews of the agencies' operations and funding programs. There also was
a workshop led by NSF staff on how to write a good grant proposal.
- Collocated with the CRA Board of Directors'
meeting and the CRA Computing Leadership Summit, the latter bringing together
the presidents, executive directors, and other senior volunteers from AAAI,
ACM, CACS/AIC, CRA, CSTB, IEEE Computer Society, SIAM, and USENIX. A joint
reception was held with CRA board members and Summit attendees in order to
give workshop participants an opportunity to meet informally with senior leaders
from the computing community.
- The fee for students, professors, and
researchers of CRA academic and lab/center member-organizations
(including students/faculty of CACS/AIC departments) was $195. The fee for
non-members was $255. This included two breaks, receptions on February 10th
and 11th, breakfasts on the 11th and 12th, and lunch on the 11th.
- This year, CRA was able to provide funding
assistance for U.S. graduate students to attend the workshop. The deadline for applications
for assistance was November 23, 2001, and twenty-six graduate students were chosen to
receive the funding.
