Dear Colleague Letter: Intent to support a Workshop to Explore Novel Ideas for Future Scientific, Educational, and Cultural Activities with the Arecibo Observatory

NSF

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is interested in exploring novel ideas for future scientific, educational, and cultural activities at the Arecibo Observatory. NSF will hold a workshop focused on finding actionable and innovative ways to support, broaden, and strengthen the radio science community across all of Puerto Rico and to create or enhance the opportunities for (1) science and (2) educational and cultural activities and public outreach at the Arecibo Observatory. The goal of the workshop is to assemble a diverse, multidisciplinary group of researchers, engineers, and educational leaders who will develop ideas and provide input for expanding the breadth and depth of radio science in Puerto Rico, as well as facilitate the generation of innovative design ideas for the Arecibo Observatory for the short (1-3 years), medium (3-10 years), or long (10+ years) term. There is no cost to attend the workshop, but registration is required.
