SciSIP Principal Investigators' Conference
September 20-21, 2012
National Academy of Sciences
2101 Constitution Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20418
On behalf of the National Academy of Sciences, we are pleased to invite you to participate in an NSF-sponsored conference for grantees of NSF’s Science of Science and Innovation Policy (SciSIP) program. The conference is scheduled for Thursday and Friday, September 20-21, 2012, and will be held at the National Academies building at 2101 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC.
The two-day conference will facilitate scholarly exchanges between SciSIP award recipients and is intended to be the largest gathering of SciSIP principal investigators since the program’s inception in 2006. It is also designed to foster intellectual exchange among funded researchers of the SciSIP program and between these researchers and STI policy practitioners. Plenary sessions will feature path-breaking research by PIs and presentations by prominent policymakers and researchers from the natural sciences and engineering (the activities which the PIs study); concurrent sessions will facilitate discussions among PIs on specific research themes and methods. Poster and demonstration sessions will also provide opportunities for dialog between practitioners and researchers. It is hoped that young investigators will see this as an opportunity to become more engaged in this field.
Topics to be addressed at the event will highlight advances in the emerging SciSIP field, including models, frameworks, tools, and datasets comprising the evidentiary basis for science and innovation policy. Presentations by SciSIP researchers will focus on several themes, such as: (1) Implementing Science Policy (includes the politics of science policy); (2) Scientific Discovery Processes; (3) Human Capital; (4) Organizations, Institutions, and Networks; (5) Innovation; (6) Data Extraction and Measurement; (7) Mapping Science; and (8) Assessment and Program Evaluation.
