The Institute for Digital Research and Education (IDRE) is soliciting proposals for Summer/Fall quarter workshops and seminars focused on topics that impact digitally-enabled research at UCLA. Events could address research challenges, emerging methodologies, software or tools, computational questions, or advances in hardware and infrastructure. The program’s goals are to address critical research issues, bring together UCLA faculty, and establish new collaborations that can lead to new funding opportunities or campus investments. Priority will be given to topics of significant impact to multiple research areas across campus.
The workshop award will support up to $5,000 to cover expenses, and the seminar award will support up to $1,000 to cover costs. Co-sponsored proposals are welcome. The IDRE Visualization Portal is available as a free venue (pending scheduling confirmation), and event support and promotion will be provided by IDRE as desired. The proposal should specify a preferred time frame and delivery mechanism, whether the event would be held in-person or virtually. Funds may be used to cover expenses, including but not limited to: travel and accommodations for visiting speakers/participants, catering, and event costs. Please also note that the funds could be used for small honorariums rather than travel if the proposal is for a virtual workshop/seminar. It is anticipated that at least one of each type of award will be funded.
Applications are welcome from any member of the UCLA Academic Senate or full-time appointees in the Adjunct Professor or Professional Research series.
The proposal narrative should be 1-2 pages. It should clearly identify the topic to be covered, its impact on the UCLA/IDRE research community, possible speakers or participants, and desired outcomes for the event. The proposed budget request should be no more than one page explaining how the funds would be spent.
Submissions should be sent to email@example.com.
Proposals are due Wednesday, June 30, 2021. An award announcement will be made in a couple of weeks after the deadline.
Questions? Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
