The NSF Broader Impacts for Research and Discovery Summit, http://www.nsfbirds.org/, will be held June 21-23, 2010, in D.C.  The Broader Impacts Summit is being sponsored by the NSF CISE - Computer Information Science and Engineering division and will have participants representing the three CISE Division research communities (Information & Intelligent Systems, Computer and Network Systems, and Computing and Communication Foundations).

The goal of the Broader Impacts Summit is to discuss, present, and subsequently develop guidance materials for the NSF CISE research community on how to effectively integrate activities that address the NSF broader impacts review criteria into their research proposals and subsequent research. To meet this goal, we are hosting a 2-day summit where (1) several examples of projects with superior broader impacts will be presented and (2) working groups will meet to discuss and document current/future broader impact activities and ways in which infrastructure can be established to make it easier for NSF investigators to improve the broader impacts of their work.
