2013 ACerS-NSF Ceramic Materials Principal Investigator Workshop
ACerS and the National Science Foundation will hold the 2013 ACerS-NSF Ceramic PI Workshop June 19-20, 2013 at NSF Headquarters in Arlington, Va. The NSF Ceramic Grantees Workshop is designed for the professional development of Principal Investigators (PIs) and co-PIs who have active NSF grants in the Ceramics Program. The workshop includes presentations on Critical Elements for PIs; Writing Effective Highlights for Public Audiences; Merit Review Changes; Career-Life-Balance and Supplements in the Ceramics Program; Professional Networking; and more. Each participant will provide an oral and poster presentation highlighting their research and education activities.
Each participant is expected to:
- Prepare one highlight for public audiences. Key points will include outcome, impact, explanation, image with caption, and release. Include name, institution and, if applicable, NSF award number on your highlight. Please use the guidelines and highlight examples from the 2012 workshop as your guide.
- Prepare a one-slide introduction for your colleagues and send it to Greg Geiger by May 29, 2013 using this template.
- Prepare a poster (3 foot by 3 foot maximum) for display during the workshop
- Complete the online Award Details Form.
Introductions will be pre-loaded on Workshop computers. Although presenters only have two minutes for their oral introduction, they will have time to share additional information during the poster session.

NSF provides reasonable accommodations to panelists, advisory committee members, NSF-hosted workshop attendees, and other individuals conducting business with NSF. Contact the Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) well in advance of the event for all reasonable accommodation issues/requests (Stafford I, Room 255S; (703) 292-8020; Shawn L.

The NSF Child Development Center (CDC) has a drop-in, on a space available basis. The provider is the Children’s Creative Learning Center (CCLC). An NSF visitor or panelist needing child care on a drop-in, occasional basis should contact the CDC at (703) 292-4794 and provide the date request and the age of the child(ren). Each classroom maintains a calendar of child/family vacations and dates that children will not be in attendance. Based on the age of the child(ren) needing drop-in care, the CDC will determine if space is available for the requested date(s). It is important to note that space is limited. If space is available, the CDC will send a confirmation by email requesting necessary paperwork, which includes: proof of identity (copy of birth certificate), immunization records, allergy information, and emergency contact information. Payment of $60 per day is due beginning on the first drop-in day. If space is not available, the CDC will contact the applicant and offer to keep in contact up until the day before care is needed. Space may become available in the event a permanent CDC child is sick or takes an unexpected vacation day. For a list of area providers, visit the Arlington County Licensed Early Childhood Programs and Home Day Care Providers. Use the map feature to spot what is in the Ballston area.
