A message from the TCS funding committee

Via Sanjeev Arora, a note from the TCS funding commitee. A modified version of this will appear in the March issue of SIGACT News. A summary:
  • There will be a call for proposals in the NSF theory program this spring and grant sizes are expected to be larger than before. So please apply and send good proposals.
  • The report outlines things you can do to help improve funding for TCS (please read and act upon). It also describes initiatives launched by the Karp committee to help bring more funding to TCS.
  • Please feel free to forward this email to all interested parties. We have also started a new moderated mailing list tcs-funding (which will automatically cc to the older theory-advocacy list). Posts are allowed on this list only by permission (guaranteed to be spam-free; only news related to grants and funding).
