A visual resource inventory process provides Bureau of Land Management managers with a means for determining visual values. This inventory consists of a scenic quality evaluation, sensitivity level analysis, and a delineation of distance zones. Based on these three factors, BLM-administered lands are placed into one of four visual resource inventory classes. These inventory classes represent the relative value of the visual resources. This inventory data is then used during the resource management planning processes in order to explain the existing visual resource as well as quantify visual impact analysis. The proposed project provides an exceptional learning experience for a student to develop GIS products and calculations from data collected in the visual resource inventory process. Information collected and processed will go through a peer review process to validate the methods used and end product. RFA-WY07-9010 (GG 4/24/07)

The NASD Investor Education Foundation invites eligible organizations to submit competitive grant proposals for research and/or education projects in the United States that protect retail investors from fraud. Applicants are encouraged to establish partnerships that combine research and technical expertise with the ability to influence large audiences through highly credible communications vehicles and networks. Successful proposals might, for example, quantify the incidence of investment fraud in the U.S.; identify the characteristics of investment fraud perpetrators or victims; uncover the mechanics of investment fraud and tactics used to deceive or pressure investors; analyze why investors respond to scams and how they behave when confronted with financial loss; help U.S. investors recognize potential investment scams; develop and test investor protection communications strategies; improve awareness among organizations (e.g., community groups and their leaders) about affinity fraud; encourage individuals to take precautions against fraud; and increase the reporting of investment fraud to public authorities.
The purpose of this program is to: 1) Improve results for children with disabilities by promoting the development, demonstration, and use of technology; 2) support educational media services activities designed to be of educational value in the classroom setting to children with disabilities; and 3) provide support for captioning and video description that is appropriate for use in the classroom setting.

The Defense Advanced Research Project Agency's (DARPA) Strategic Technology Office (STO) is soliciting proposals under this BAA for IAMANET. The objective of the IAMANET program is to develop an intrinsically assurable mobile ad-hoc network which will directly support integrity, availability, reliability, confidentiality, safety, and non-repudiation of MANET communications and data. DARPA BAA 07-32 will solicit only Phase 1 of the IAMANET program. Phase 1 is Research, design, prototyping, and demonstration of network infrastructure and applications. BAA07-32 (FBO 4/30/07)
The Department of Energy (DOE), National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) is seeking applications for the University Coal Research (UCR) Program. In support of advanced coal research at U.S. colleges and universities, the overall objective of this program is threefold: 1) to support the education of students in the area of coal science; 2) to maintain and upgrade the coal research capabilities at facilities of U.S. colleges and universities; and 3) to improve our understanding of the chemical and physical processes involved in the conversion and utilization of coal in an environmentally acceptable manner. This year, research is limited to the one board topic area: Enabling Advanced Modeling and Simulation for Fuel -Flexible Combustors. DE-PS26-07NT43112 (GG 4/26/07)
18-10 Accelerating Discovery in Science and Engineering Through Petascale Simulations and Analysis (PetaApps) (NSF)
This solicitation seeks proposals to develop the future simulation, optimization and analysis tools that can use petascale computing to advance the frontiers of scientific and engineering research. Proposals are sought from researchers aiming to capitalize on emerging petascale computing architectures, catalyzing progress in science and engineering beyond the current state-of-the-art. NSF's emphasis is on implementation exploitation of forefront techniques. Proposers must be prepared to demonstrate that they have a science or engineering research problem that requires or can exploit petascale computing capabilities. Proposals from or including junior researchers are encouraged as one of the goals of this solicitation is to build a community capable of using petascale computing. An individual may be the PI in no more that one proposal that responds to this solicitation. NSF 07-559 (Posted 4/24/07)
