Algorithms in the Field (8F)

NSF announces a new funding program for Algorithms in the Field. Deadline is Feb 9, 2015.  One of the metrics in Algorithms community is the ultimate use of our algorithms, ``use" being broadly interpreted, and this often needs us to go more than halfway to meet other communities. This program is an opportunity to codify the process some. When one does meet the other communities, almost always it leads to new theories and algorithms, and more than pays for the journey. I hope you will respond.

Here is more info on the workshop we organized 2 years ago. The videos of the talks are here.

really great to see these awards/ funding where "ivory tower" meets "in the trenches" so to speak. however there are two links at the bottom of that NSF page about funding/ awards that currently both lead to 0 search results. no money awarded yet? that seems to be the case.
also a great case of empirical TCS research... hope to see this field/ research program/ style continue to grow.
