The Michigan Institute for Data Science (MIDAS) will hold a faculty meeting at noon on Thursday, January 19 (Suite 7625, School of Public Health I, 1415 Washington Heights) for the NSF 17-534 “Critical Techniques, Technologies and Methodologies for Advancing Foundations and Applications of Big Data Sciences and Engineering (BIGDATA)” solicitation.
MIDAS is working to arrange for a NSF Program Officer to be available to answer questions regarding the BIGDATA solicitation. A representative from Advanced Research Computing – Technology Services (ARC-TS) will attend to discuss potential use of AWS, Google Cloud, or Microsoft Azure cloud services to be made available through the National Science Foundation for this funding opportunity. Also, a representative from Consulting for Statistics, Computing and Analytics Research (CSCAR) will attend to discuss data science tools and resources available for this solicitation.
We invite faculty members to share ideas and interest in responding to this BIGDATA solicitation as well as interact with other faculty looking to respond to this funding mechanism. MIDAS resources are available to support development of research proposals in response to this NSF solicitation.
A box lunch will be provided at the faculty meeting. Your RSVP (https://goo.gl/forms/OYAuB8mWCOlx3fw73) is appreciated.
