UKFN WEEKLY ROUND-UP 15/8/19
If you would like to circulate a brief message to the UKFN mailing list,
please send it to info at fluids.ac.uk by Thursday noon.
A. UKFN MESSAGES
FROM: Nick Daish, 15/8/19
SUBJECT: SIGs - 3rd call for proposals
The UKFN Executive Committee has agreed to fund two additional Special
Interest Groups. They must be distinct from the SIGs that have been
funded to date (see https://fluids.ac.uk/sig).
Each successful SIG will be allocated £2,000, to be used to fund a
Kick-off meeting. Please note funding is through reimbursement of the
meeting costs, rather than an up-front payment: the meeting host pays,
and then invoices UKFN for reimbursement afterwards. Eligible expenses
- Venue hire
THE MEETING MUST HAVE BEEN COMPLETED BY 31 JANUARY 2020, and the invoice
for reimbursement received by 15 February 2020.
Applications should consist of a proposal using the template below, and
should be emailed to sig at fluids.ac.uk by FRIDAY 20 SEPTEMBER 2019. The
results will be announced by 30 September 2019, and the SIGs chosen will
formally start on 1 October 2019.
Please send any questions to sig at fluids.ac.uk.
1. SIG title
2. Description of SIG (up to 300 words, excluding titles):
a. Subject and scope
3. Proposed members
Please list the researchers who will participate, their affiliation, and
their broad area of expertise. At least three academic institutions
should take part. For SIGs with industrial involvement, we would suggest
typically three participants from industry. Please nominate a SIG
leader, who will be the point of contact with UKFN, and a co-leader from
a different organization.
4. Contact details
Please give the name, affiliation (institution and department) and email
address of the proposed leader and co-leader.
