This event took place on September 12, 2011.  Please see the links under "Core Attachments" and "Relevant Documents" below to access recorded material from the event and other documents describing the DEB Core Programs Solicitation.

The Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) has initiated new procedures for the submission and review of regular research proposals to the core programs within the Division of Molecular and Cellular Biosciences (MCB), Division of Environmental Biology (DEB), and Division of Integrative Organismal Systems (IOS).  The changes for MCB were previously announced in a new solicitation (NSF-11-545). Effective immediately, DEB and IOS will both implement an annual cycle of preliminary and full proposals beginning in January 2012.  Preliminary proposals will be accepted in January.  New Solicitations  NSF 11-572 for IOS and  NSF 11-573 (for DEB) provide further details.

This webinar, hosted by program staff from the four clusters in the Division of Environmental Biology, will consist of two parts: 

  • an overview of how these changes impact submissions to DEB programs
  • audience question and answer session

This webinar will be hosted using WebEx online meeting software.  All online participants must register to attend here: Once registered, participants will receive instructions for joining the meeting. Registration is open to any interested participants; however, the number of registrations may be limited.

Please note, the webinar will be recorded and made available for subsequent viewing.
