Scientific Activities
(A sample of a previous call for training proposals)

NPCDS is soliciting proposals for training initiatives of up to 5 days in length to take place.

Proposals should emphasize methodology for the analysis of data with complex structures and can appeal to individuals with varying degrees of statistical expertise. Proposals must demonstrate that the event will be instrumental in advancing the research agenda of a scientist working in an interdisciplinary environment at a university, research institute, government agencies or in industry. Data that arise in this environment includes, but is not limited to, sample surveys with complex designs, and biological, environmental, medical or industrial studies with longitudinal or hierarchical structures.
Proposals may include training components that are expository of the area of application rather than being wholly methodological in nature. Successful applicants will receive up to $20,000 in support of the event and applicants are encouraged to seek other sources of support. Preference will be given to those proposals that are related to existing NPCDS activity and these events may complement existing training activity.
