The Information & Intelligent Systems (IIS) (http://www.nsf.gov/div/index.jsp?div=IIS) research community is very fortunate this year, as the US National Science Foundation (http://www.nsf.gov) and the Computer & Information Science & Engineering (CISE) Directorate (http://www.nsf.gov/dir/index.jsp?org=CISE) have several IIS-relevant funding opportunities (calls for proposals). This also means that we need to find many panelists and reviewers that would be able and willing to review these proposals.
I would like to ask you to volunteer to assist NSF in the review process.
Panelists usually review a set of proposals in a 1-2 day panel meeting that meets at NSF. Panelists write a review for 8-10 proposals prior to coming to the meeting, try to get familiar with all proposals in the group, and then proposals are evaluated at the panel meeting.
NOTE: Non-US panelists may only be researchers from organizations that do NOT receive support from their governments, e.g., only private universities or non-government labs, industry, etc.
Reviewers are specially selected experts whose review will complement the panel evaluation, as it is not always possible to have several experts for every proposal among the panel members. Preferably, the expert reviews are submitted prior to the panel meeting, so that these reviews are a part of the panel evaluation.
NOTE: There are no affiliation restrictions for non-US reviewers.
Please review the Program Solicitations and then specify how you could help in the lower part of this message. I would appreciate your deleting the top part of this message.
I also would like to ask you for forward this request for help to your colleagues and friends. NSF is interested in engaging a diverse pool of researchers as panelists or reviewers, including academic, non-academic, non-US researchers, and underrepresented groups.
Thank you for your assistance,
P.S. Sorry if you are receiving this message several times. This means that you are very popular :)
================================== PLEASE DELETE THE TOP PART =============================
NOTE: If you submitted a proposal to a Program Solicitation in a particular category (e.g., IIS: RI-Small), you cannot review proposals submitted to that Program Solicitation in that category, but can review proposals submitted to that Program Solicitation in other categories (e.g., RI-Large, RI-Medium, III-Small, III-Medium, III-Large, etc.).
Please place Y in front of panels you can participate in (provided there are no conflicts of interest, there are proposals in your areas of expertise, etc.)
Please place #, the maximum number of proposals (e.g., 3) you could provide an expert review for, to be used in the given panel (provided there are no conflicts of interest, the proposals are in your areas of expertise, etc.)
