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.
