Track 16: National Science Foundation 

Description: In this forum, National Science Foundation (NSF) will provide various avenues for the IMECE community to interact with program directors from relevant Divisions such as the Civil, Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation (CMMI) Division and the Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental, and Transport Systems (CBET) Division. 

Track Objectives: To provide a venue for NSF directors and principle investigators at US-based educational institutions to meet and develop research efforts. 

There is an NSF Student Poster Competition for NSF funded Research and Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) categories. To find out more information visit the NSF page https://event.asme.org/IMECE/Program/NSF 

Plenary: Overview and Outreach Panel 
The plenary is intended to highlight one or more NSF Program Director(s) discussing NSF-wide organizational and technical themes. 

NSF Proposal Development Workshop 
This topic is intended to provide a venue for NSF program directors to give workshops on areas of significant interest.  Potential workshops could include the fundamentals of successful grant proposal writing for the National Science Foundation (NSF), opportunities for young faculty, how to successfully run a “Research Experience for Undergraduates” program, or others.  Participants will learn about key topics, critical aspects of the merit review process, funding profiles, and NSF programs, solicitations, and other opportunities. The workshops are geared towards investigators at U.S. institutions seeking to understand the NSF processes, but the information provided will be valuable to principal investigators in any stage of their career seeking to learn more. 

NSF Program Overviews 
This topic provides a venue for overviews of NSF Divisions.  They will be provided with emphasis on programs and funding opportunities. Relevant core programs from the Cluster will be highlighted. The floor will then be opened to participants to ask questions.   

One-on-One with NSF Program Directors 
Principal Investigators (PIs) will have an opportunity to discuss one-on-one their research proposals and concerns with program directors of their choice. Meetings will be 20 minutes, so the PIs must come prepared with their talking points.  The IMECE website will be updated as program directors are confirmed.  Interested PIs will be able to register for meeting slots online.
