Funding Opportunities for Developing Software - IDEaS Panel Discussion

Featuring T. Daniel Crawford, Ph.D., Director, NSF Molecular Sciences Software Institute

NSF, DOE, and other agencies are starting to invest heavily in software development by academic research groups. Industry is also interested in gaining access to cutting-edge techniques by using academic software. 
These funding opportunities are starting to make more researchers think seriously about converting their in-house demonstration codes into usable software products. Academics who have released software are often finding that it makes a large impact on their disciplines. 
Please join us for a panel discussion on software development by academics, discussing benefits, challenges, and best practices.
T. Daniel Crawford, Ph.D., Director of the Molecular Sciences Software Institute at Virginia Tech, will describe how NSF is supporting academic software through their Sustainable Software Institutes. 
Mark Borodovsky, Ph.D. (computational genomics and bioinformatics), Greg Eisenhauer, Ph.D. (high-performance data communication), and John Wise, Ph.D. (computational cosmology and volumetric visualization) will share their experiences with academic software development at Georgia Tech.
