Alaska NSF EPSCoR announces "Data to Decision" visualization award competition
The Alaska NSF Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (Alaska NSF EPSCoR) is awarding grants of up to $20,000 for teams of University of Alaska faculty, staff and/or students to develop innovative data visualizations for display in the new UAF Decision Theater North facility, or in the UAA Planetarium and Visualization Theater. Visualization projects should be relevant to an Alaskan population(s) or community(ies), and should include a detailed plan to use the visualization as a means to communicate scientific data and to engage members of the public. The project is organized into three interdisciplinary test cases focused on areas of Southeast, Southcentral and Northern Alaska, and research specifically centers on landscape and hydrologic change. For more information visit the EPSCoR website.
The deadline for submission of proposals is midnight AKDT September 14, 2015. We plan to award up to five proposals, with an expected award period of September 28, 2015 – May 28, 2016.
