(1) Feb. 2, 2012 deadline for NSF AGS Postdoctoral Research Fellowships.


From Farzad Kamalabadi (fkamalab at nsf.gov).

The NSF Division of Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences (AGS) consolidated and expanded the former AGS CEDAR, GEM and SHINE fellowships so that one opportunity can engage researchers covering the full range of Atmospheric and Geospace sciences. An important aspect of the AGS Postdoctoral Research Fellowships (AGS-PRF) Program is that awardees are treated as an interdisciplinary cohort and will attend a workshop at the end of the first year to meet their peers, discuss their research and explore connections across disciplines.

These awards recognize beginning investigators of significant potential, and provide them with a research opportunity that will broaden their knowledge and perspectives, facilitate interdisciplinary interactions and help establish them in leadership positions within the AGS community.

Awards are for up to 2 years with Fellowships that can be taken to the institution or national facility of their choice. These awards enable investigators to carry out independent research programs in any AGS discipline. Fellowships are open to graduate students or graduates who completed their PhD less than 3 years before the award start date.

Fellowships are awards to individuals, not institutions, and are administered by the Fellows.

Proposals will be reviewed and funded by the most relevant program. Interested candidates are strongly encouraged to contact the program officer associated with the program most closely related to their work to discuss the appropriateness of their research for funding.

See NSF Solicitation 11-521, http://nsf.gov/div/index.jsp?div=AGS.

Proposal deadline: February 2, 2012

(3) 24-30 June, 2012, Kaliningrad, Russia, III International Conference “Atmosphere, ionosphere, safety” (AIS-2012) - abstracts due 15 March.


From Maxsim Klimenko (maxsim.klimenko at mail.ru).

Dear colleagues!

The III International Conference “Atmosphere, ionosphere, safety” (AIS-2012) will be held on June 24–30, 2012, in Kaliningrad, Russia. The conference AIS-2012 will promote the analysis of the “atmosphere–ionosphere” system response on the natural and anthropogenic processes, reason and effect of different concomitant geophysical phenomena, and the estimation of its effect on mankind and technological systems. Also, it is planned to discuss physical and chemical processes accompanying observed geophysical phenomena.

INTERNATIONAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE CHAIR

G. V. Golubkov Inst. Chem. Phys., Moscow (Russia)


CONFERENCE TOPICS:

  • Elementary processes in the upper atmosphere and ionosphere (section E)
  • Electromagnetic and optical phenomena in the atmosphere (section P)
  • Ionosphere dynamics and atmosphere–ionosphere coupling (section D)
  • Environmental information systems for monitoring and prevention of accidents (section S)
  • Combustion and pollution: environmental impact (section C)
  • Novel Physical-Chemical Methods for Environmental Control and Monitoring (section M)

All scientists who are interested in understanding and exploring chemical and physical processes in the atmosphere and the ionosphere are invited to Kaliningrad for this exciting 7-day scientific summer event.

Information about conference can be found at our website http://www.ais2012.ru. Abstracts and registration are due March 15, 2012, where the template file at the website should be used for preparing abstracts.
