The Society for the Humanities at Cornell University, which supports research and encourages imaginative teaching in the humanities, is accepting applications from scholars and artists for its fellowship program. The focal theme for the 2008-2009 program in "Water, A Critical Concept for the Humanities." The program calls for scholarly reflection on critical concepts of water from a broad range of disciplinary and inter-disciplinary perspectives. The society welcomes applications from scholars and artists who theorize, research, and perform water as a critical concept for the humanities. Fellows should be working on topics related to the year's theme. Their approach to the humanities should be broad enough to appeal to students and scholars in several humanistic disciplines.
The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation has announced a public competition that will award a total of $2 million in funding to emerging leaders, communicators, and innovators shaping the field of digital media and learning. The competition is part of MacArthur's Digital Media and Learning initiative that aims to help determine how digital technologies are changing the way young people learn, play, socialize, and participate in civic life. Awards will be given in two categories: 1) Innovation Awards will support learning entrepreneurs and builders of new digital environments for informal learning; and 2) Knowledge Networking Awards, will support communicators in connecting, mobilizing, circulating, or translating new ideas around digital media and learning.
Those involved with science, engineering, commerce, health, and national security all increasingly face the challenge of synthesizing information and deriving insight from massive, dynamic, ambiguous and possibly conflicting digital data. The goal of collecting and examining these data is not to merely acquire information, but to derive increased understanding from it and to facilitate effective decision-making. To capitalize on the opportunities provided by these data sets, a new, interdisciplinary field of science is emerging called Data and Visual Analytics, which is defined as the science of analytical reasoning facilitated by interactive visual interfaces. Data and Visual Analytics requires interdisciplinary science, going beyond traditional scientific and information visualization to include statistics, mathematics, knowledge representation, management and discovery technologies, cognitive and perceptual science, decision sciences, and more. This solicitation is concerned only with a subset of the overall problem, namely the creation of the mathematical and computational sciences foundations required to transform data in ways that permit visual-based understanding. Two types of proposals are sought: FODAVA-Lead proposals will be submitted by research teams where all team members belong to a single academic institution willing to assume a leadership and coordination role. FODAVA-Lead proposals will compete for a single award with the successful institution expected to play a key role in the development of FODAVA. FODAVA-Partner proposals will be submissions for two-to-three year research grants. Recipients will perform fundamental research but will also actively participate with the FODAVA-Lead Institute in developing FODAVA as a field. An individual may appear as PI, co-PI, Senior Personnel, or Consultant on no more than one FODAVA-Lead proposal and one FODAVA-Partner proposal. NSF 07-583
This new program element solicits concept studies for strategic space flight science missions that may be carried out in the next decade or for which technology development funding is sought in the next decade. These concept studies will be used for midterm and far-term forward planning of a diverse astrophysics mission portfolio and for obtaining a simultaneous and uniform assessment of future technology development needs for the Astrophysics Division. Study results and information related to the technical maturity of proposed mission components are expected to be provided as input to the panels convened by the National Research Council for the upcoming 2010 Astronomy and Astrophysics Decadal Survey.

The Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense (JPEO-CBD) is organized into eight Joint Project Management Offices, each responsible for specific commodity areas. The Chemical Biological Medical Systems Joint Project Management Office (CBMS JPMO) consists of the Joint Vaccine Acquisition Program (JVAP), Medical Identification and Treatment Systems (MITS), and Transformational Medical Technologies Initiative (TMTI) Joint Product Management Offices (JPMOs). The medical CBRN countermeasures developed by the CBMS JPMO directly support the current, near-term, and far-term challenges by providing the capability to prevent, diagnose, and treat the effects of chemical, radiological and biological warfare agents. The JVAP JPMO provides biological protection by ensuring Warfighters immune systems are primed to protect them from selected threats. The MITS JPMO is responsible for the advanced development of U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) -approved/licensed/cleared products for prophylaxis, treatment and diagnosis of CBRN agent exposure. The TMTI JPMO is developing and evaluating novel processes to accelerate the development and approval of medical CBRN countermeasures by leveraging lifecycle bioinformatics, enabling technologies, and other emerging technologies.
