INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis Chancellor and IU Executive Vice President Nasser H.
Paydar, who was appointed to his position in June 2015, will provide an overview of the trends in contemporary higher education with a keen focus on IUPUI. INDIANAPOLIS -- Herron School of Art and Design professor Anila Quayyum Agha has won the two top prizes at ArtPrize 2014, earning a record $300,000 in the international art competition held in Grand Rapids, Mich. Her entry, titled "Intersections," earned the ArtPrize 2014 Public Vote Grand Prize of $200,000 and split the Juried Grand Prize of $200,000 in a tie with "The Haircraft Project," by artist Sonya Clark of Richmond, Va.
Agha's wins mark the first time one entry has won both the ArtPrize grand prize awarded by popular vote and the grand prize awarded by a jury of international art experts. The professor's unprecedented success was no surprise to Susan Scarafia, a 1983 IU Kelley School of Business graduate who traveled to Grand Rapids to join the thousands of visitors -- including Michigan Gov.
The "hooked" included one man who, while viewing "Intersections," dropped to his knees and surprised his girlfriend with a marriage proposal, according to a news report.
Agha is associate professor of drawing and foundation studies at Herron, the art school on the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis campus. The professor's "Intersections," completed under a 2012-13 New Frontiers Research Grant from Indiana University, is composed of a 6.5-foot laser-cut wooden cube created using Herron's new computer numeric control router.
When illuminated by the single bulb installed inside, the wooden frieze casts patterns of light and shadows inspired by the geometric patterning of Islamic sacred places as found in the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain. A smaller version of Agha's winning entry was on view in the Frank and Katrina Basile Gallery at Herron last fall. ArtPrize 2014, an independent competition open to anyone 18 or older, included 1,536 entries representing 51 countries and 42 U.S.
The contest, which drew 400,000 visitors last year, awarded two grand prizes totaling $400,000 and eight awards in the four categories worth a total of $160,000. The winners were announced in Hollywood fashion during an ArtPrize Awards ceremony Oct 10 at the Grand Rapids Civic Theatre. The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research (OVCR) publishes the RESEARCH ENTERPRISE to keep the academic community and the community at large informed about research activities, opportunities and development on the IUPUI campus.

Please be aware that not all news items will be deemed appropriate or timely for publication, but each item will be carefully considered. The School of Engineering and Technology received a $1.3 million grant from the Department Office of Energy (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. Through these university-based IACs, engineering students will receive extensive training in industrial processes, energy assessment procedures, and energy management principles, which will be put to use working directly with small and medium-sized industrial and manufacturing facilities around their communities. The REU project funded the integration of two undergraduate informatics students into Bolchini’s research team during the 2011 summer term. The findings of the research have been showcased at the 2011 IUPUI Research Day and will be submitted to a premier peer-reviewed conference in human-computer interaction. Panelists will draw from their expertise in high tech and life science ventures to discuss marketing, legal, and technical issues that need to be addressed in taking university research to market—in particular, when starting new technology companies.
16 Tech is being designed and marketed to attract to Downtown Indianapolis research firms, contract service providers, and high-tech companies in such industries as information technology, health information technology, motorsports, biotechnology, and clean energy. The purpose of this workshop is to help raise campus wide awareness of the broad spectrum of imaging research activity within our IUPUI community.
Poster Session Abstracts: The submission deadline for poster session abstracts is October 21, 2011. The Great Lakes Equity Center will begin operations on October 1 and will draw upon a wealth of experience and expertise held by Thorius, Maxcy and Nguyen to assist and train personnel on the preparation, adoption and implementation of plans for public school desegregation across the six state region at the request of school boards and other governmental agencies. The team’s research and teaching promotes inclusive and culturally responsive policies and practice across educational systems that address disparities in student access, participation and outcomes and provide high-quality opportunities to learn for all students. These unique educational resources will utilize audemes – short but complex collages of non-speech sound effects and music. The games and supplemental digital materials will be specifically designed to support and enhance education in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). RESEARCH SUPPORT FUNDS GRANT (RSFG): The Research Support Funds Grant (RSFG) program is designed to enhance the research mission of IUPUI by supporting research projects and scholarly activities that are sustainable through external funding. The objective of the BiCCHEC community-based pilot research grant for students is to foster and encourage collaborations between IUPUI researchers and community partners and to promote projects that have the potential to develop into larger externally funded research programs or generate scholarly products.
The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) is accepting applications for its fall 2011 Core Pilot Funding Grant program.
This session will reveal the Nine Golden Rules on how to succeed in research and scholarship. This workshop will target the essentials of developing a successful grant proposal in the arts, humanities and social sciences.

The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research recognizes and congratulates all IUPUI faculty and researchers for recent awards they have received and that help to advance the IUPUI research enterprise. Funding opportunities in this section include selected current grant announcements from federal agencies for new initiatives and changes to existing programs.
Digital Humanities Implementation Grants: This program is designed to fund the implementation of innovative digital-humanities projects that have successfully completed a start-up phase and demonstrated their value to the field.
Systems Science and Health in the Behavioral and Social Sciences (R01, R21): The focus is on basic and applied projects utilizing systems science methodologies relevant to human behavioral and social sciences and health. Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) in Engineering and Computer Science: The program supports the active involvement of K-12 science, technology, engineering, computer and information science, and mathematics (STEM) teachers and community college faculty in engineering and computer science research in order to bring knowledge of engineering, computer science, and technological innovation into their classrooms.
Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience (CRCNS)Innovative Approaches to Science and Engineering Research on Brain Function: Computational neuroscience provides a theoretical foundation and a rich set of technical approaches for understanding complex neurobiological systems, building on the theory, methods, and findings of computer science, neuroscience, and numerous other disciplines. On-line search tools are available to IUPUI investigators who are interested in identifying funding opportunities in their areas of interest. Community of Science (COS): COS is a primary on-line search tool for identifying funding opportunities. Many federal agencies and foundations offer grants, awards and fellowships that limit the number of applications that can come from one institution or require special handling. Her total prize is also the highest amount given to one individual in the competition, which awards the world's largest art prize. Rick Snyder -- who viewed the entries on display at venues within the three-mile square art district in downtown Grand Rapids. During the 19-day ArtPrize exhibit, which ended Sunday, the entry was on display at the Grand Rapids Art Museum. ArtPrize has a parallel awards structure, with half of the awards decided by public vote cast by mobile devices or online and half by a jury of international art experts.
More than $30 million was awarded to only 24 universities in 23 states across the country to train undergraduate- and graduate-level engineering students in manufacturing efficiency to help them become the nation's next generation of industrial energy efficiency experts. Each IAC is expected to train at least 10 to 15 students per year, conduct approximately 20 energy assessments annually, and perform extensive follow-up reporting, tracking, implementation, and management-improvement activities. The students were hands-on in co-creating empirical human-computer interaction research for the design and evaluation of innovative aural mobile applications.
Bolchini participated in an REU proposal writing circle, sponsored and administered by the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research. Do you want to be a technology entrepreneur?  Or do you want to be part of a start-up team for a new venture?
There will be a networking reception following the keynote address.  Everyone is welcome but please register! Jane Silverthorne, Acting Division Director for Integrative Organismal Systems, from the National Science Foundation (NSF). Department of Education awarded the School of Education a $2.2 million grant to support the development of a regional Equity Assistance Center (EAC), known as the Great Lakes Equity Center. Like all EACs, the Great Lakes Equity Center in Indianapolis will serve as a resource for the prevention of discrimination, exclusion, or denial of opportunity on the basis of race, sex, or national origin such as discriminatory activities that may include inequitable opportunities to learn, harassment, segregation and denial of language services.
As defined by program guidelines, desegregation refers to equity plans and actions -- including desegregation based on race, sex, and national origin and the development of effective methods of coping with special educational problems occasioned by desegregation.
Earlier this year, the Indiana Commission for Higher Education approved a new Urban Education Studies Ph.D.
Audemes are found to significantly enhance students’ ability to imprint and recall academic information, and have particular utility among populations unable to visually process information. The National Center for Blind Youth in Science, a component of the National Federation of the Blind, notes that blind and visually-impaired students have historically received inadequate education in math and science, creating a barrier that discourages many such students from pursuing STEM careers as adults. From health care to parenting, business to learning, and Indiana to the world, these faculty members have translated their research into viable practices that help people in our communities. Generally, the IDF grant serves as venture capital to stimulate additional funding for international research and scholarly activity, which have strong potential to generate indirect cost recovery from extramural sources. Proposed projects must have participation by one (or more) student(s) and a community partner.

This program will fund up to $10,000 in services provided by Indiana CTSI-designated core facilities, with the specific goal of funding projects with outstanding scientific merit and potential to generate extramural funding or novel intellectual property. Such partnerships with an eye to creating new realities support and enhance mutual gain and shared futures. Wide-ranging topics will be covered from developing a strong foundation for your application to key components of the narrative, the basic budget, writing styles, and interpreting agency guidelines. Whether your work is in the arts or the sciences, COS funding and expertise search tools and services can help support and advance your research and scholarly activity. An expert panel will provide practical insights and context for the fundamentals of technology entrepreneurship, and highlight challenges specific to different business sectors. Participants may bring to the workshop any proposal to share with other members of the group for discussion.
Pre-proposals (8 page maximum) can be submitted any time before August 12, 2012 and proposers will receive a response within 30 days. This FOA is intended to encourage a broader scope of topics to be addressed with systems science methodologies, beyond those encouraged by existing open FOAs. It allows you to receive discipline specific funding opportunities that are delivered to you weekly via email. Through the Industrial Assessment Center (IAC) program, university teams across the country will gain practical training and skills that will enable them to conduct energy assessments in a broad range of manufacturing facilities and help them compete in today's economy while helping local companies and factories to reduce energy waste, save money, and become more economically competitive. In addition to conducting assessments at industrial plants, each IAC will be expected to promote interaction with private sector partners that could provide valuable workforce development support, such as scholarships and internship opportunities.
The Center will provide technical assistance in the areas of civil rights, equity and access, and school reform. The grant is part of the Department of Education's initiatives to support elementary and secondary education under Title IV of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. She played a central role in leading Wisconsin's statewide efforts to address disproportionate representation of racial minority students in special education. The project will expand understanding of how audemes can enhance concept creation as well as recall, and how non-verbal sound, in general, correlates to language-based comprehension of concepts.
The project builds upon nearly four years of previous research and evaluation with students at the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually-Impaired. Learn how to take full advantage of these services and help our institution promote its work.
Sessions will assist project conception and development, budget construction and proposal writing and editing. Opportunities found at this site include, but are not limited to, presolicitations and special notices for research and service contracts for specific projects and some national centers and surveys that would not be found in and may not be found in the Community of Science.
The Special Handling List was compiled and is maintained by the Indiana University Foundation office of Corporate and Foundation Relations. The three-year project will be led by principal investigator Kathleen King Thorius, assistant professor of special education and co-investigators Brendan Maxcy, associate professor of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies (ELPS), and Thu Suong Thi Nguyen, assistant professor in ELPS.
The funds support civil rights training and advisory services for schools and communities addressing equity and access issues in public education. Participants will assist each other to develop their project ideas and edit their writing as much as possible.
You can access federal, local, corporate, foundation, nonprofit and other funding opportunities using key terms and save the results of up to 20 searches and have them delivered to you weekly via email. Jie Chen, principal investigator of the grant and professor and chair of mechanical engineering, will lead an IAC on the IUPUI campus. Donna Hart-Tervalon, a former assistant director of special education for the state of Wisconsin will head up operations as Project Director. Ten regional EACs are funded across the nation to ensure all children, regardless of race, gender or national origin, have equal access to quality education and opportunities to meet high academic standards in reading, math and other core subject areas.
Work will occur in the workshops as well as online by email and through the Oncourse project site. The Indiana School for the Blind and Visually-Impaired will continue to serve as a partner in the testing and evaluation of the research. Faculty members who participate in at least three workshops over the two semesters will subsequently be eligible to apply for follow-up assistance for proposal writing, editing, and submission by the proposal development staff in the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research.
