This invitation-only workshop will take place over February 18-19, 2014, and we have invited all participants at this time. Invitations were issued to researchers with interests and potential impact in Cyber-Physical Systems, with a special emphasis on participation by early career researchers. The goal of the workshop is to help aspiring PIs understand what NSF (and importantly, the panels convened by NSF) are expecting to see in a successful CPS proposal.

Talks by NSF Program Directors and currently funded CPS Principal Investigators will provide a program that supplements time set aside for individual meetings between aspiring PIs and Program Directors.


The workshop will take place over 1.5 days, starting around 08:00 each morning. On Tuesday (18 February) the workshop sessions will conclude around 3:30 or earlier, and on Wednesday (19 February) we will conclude around 11:00 am. The remaining part of Tuesday will be devoted to scheduled meetings between aspiring PIs and PDs. The remaining part of Wednesday is left open for travel, or to schedule meetings with other program directors who are located in the Washington, DC area.
