NIMBioS is currently not accepting new Investigative Workshop requests. NIMBioS is currently accepting applications for our new Accelerator Tutorials and Innovator Workshops. We are looking for proposals for transformative research (Innovator Workshops) and proposals for innovative ideas for teaching new quantitative approaches (Accelerator Tutorials). The next deadline to submit a proposal is Nov 1.
Investigative Workshops focus on broad topics or a set of related topics, summarizing/synthesizing the state of the art and identifying future directions. Requests for NIMBioS support for investigative workshops have been considered twice per year; however, new requests are currently not being accepted. All areas of research at the interface of biology and mathematics have been considered, but we have been especially interested in activities expanding beyond the areas of research supported to date. Potential organizers of activities in areas of molecular biology, cell biology, network biology, immunology and systems biology have been particularly encouraged to submit requests for support of Working Groups or Investigative Workshops.
Investigative Workshops have up to 35 participants. Organizers and key invited researchers make up half the participants; the remaining participants (up to 17) are filled through open application from the scientific community. Open applicants selected to attend are notified by NIMBioS within two weeks of the application deadline. Investigative Workshops have the potential for leading to one or more future Working Groups. Individuals with a strong interest in the topic, including post-docs and graduate students, have been encouraged to apply. If needed, NIMBioS has provided support (travel, meals, lodging) for Workshop attendees, whether from a non-profit or for-profit organization.
