INCREASE Workshop

Interdisciplinary Consortium for Research and Educational Access in Science and Engineering

July 15-17, 2009

Purpose and Scope

The Interdisciplinary Consortium for Research and Educational Access in Science and Engineering (INCREASE) is an organization to promote research in Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and other minority-serving institutions (MSIs), involving utilization of national user facilities - in particular, the National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS) at Brookhaven National Laboratory - as well as to facilitate education and research training, especially for members of minority groups: African-Americans, Hispanics, and women. The third annual workshop for this consortium will be held at Brookhaven National Laboratory this summer.

Agenda

The workshop will consist of introductory lectures on synchrotron science, techniques, and operations. Hands-on experimental activities will be offered to participants using a variety of beamlines. Additionally, there will be a writing tutorial focused on the development of competitive beamtime proposals for independent research at the NSLS.

Intended Audience

The workshop is open to all MSI tenured or tenure-track faculty.
