UC Center Sacramento 2021-2022 STEM Solutions in Public Policy Award Competition
Summer Activities - Week 8
The Center for Research in Open Source Software (CROSS) is seeking proposals for new research and incubator projects to be reviewed at the Fall 2021 CROSS Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) meeting, which will be held October 5.
Proposals are due on September 10. If a proposal is shortlisted, the project lead will be invited to make a 15-20 minute presentation to the CROSS IAB and Advisory Committee.
The full Call for Proposals is available on the CROSS website at https://cross.ucsc.edu/projects/projectproposal.html. That page provides full details about how to apply, the criteria for selection, important dates and a list of suggested topics.
UCSC faculty and PhD students who will have completed their class work by the end of Fall 2021 are encouraged to propose research projects. Funding for selected research projects cover the costs for one graduate student researcher (GSR) position. Research projects should raise a fundamental research question and open a plausible path to open source software that would be widely adopted. Research projects should also fit within the list of suggested topics included in the Call.
Recent PhD graduates or those graduating by the end of Fall 2021 from any university are welcome to propose incubator projects. Selected incubator projects fund one post-doc as an Open Source Fellow. This Fellowship is intended for postdoctoral scholars who want to grow contributor communities around their open source research prototypes and who can play the role of "open source ambassador" at UC Santa Cruz, including through exemplifying open source project and community management practices, sharing their experiences as a mentor to students, and as a classroom instructors for courses that teach students how to productively engage in open source projects. The incubator proposal should also show strong evidence that the open source project would meet with great interest by at least one well-established open source community.
Contact CROSS (email@example.com) if you have any questions about this Call or the submission process.
