The workshop is limited to 200 participants. Assistant professors in the disciplines that CMMI
supports will have priority. If there are spaces left, the workshop will also accept assistant
professors in (a) other engineering disciplines, (b) science, and (c) other disciplines that NSF
supports. Other factors that might affect the selection include (1) whether the applicant's next
CAREER proposal will be submitted to the CMMI division; (2) the number of CAREER proposals
that have been submitted by an applicant; and (3) the number of years remaining for the
applicant to submit a CAREER proposal. Higher priority will give to those who have previously
submitted CAREER proposals and those who are running out of time to do so. Women,
underrepresented minorities (African American, Hispanic, American Indian/Alaskan Native), and
disabled candidates are encouraged to apply.
