CEWIT2013 is primarily interested in serving as a venue for the discussion of technical contributions highlighting end-to-end technical solutions, applications and systems, even if available only in prototype form. Therefore, we strongly encourage authors to submit abstracts describing their contributions in an application-oriented context.
We cordially invite you to submit your contribution to the 10th International Conference & Expo on Emerging Technologies for a Smarter World (CEWIT2013) to be held at the Melville Marriott in Long Island, New York, on October 21 and 22, 2013.
Abstracts will be evaluated by conference program committee members and external reviewers. Submissions will be judged on validity, originality, technical strength, practical significance, quality of presentation, and relevance to the conference topics. We encourage submissions from a variety of fields where in-depth application-centric ideas addressing important challenges related to the conference theme are discussed. Authors of accepted oral presentations may submit a full paper to be included in the conference proceedings.
In addition to the oral presentations, we encourage participation in the poster session to present ongoing research and innovative application projects. A judging panel of industry and academic experts will evaluate the posters and determine the winners of Best Poster and Best Student Poster Awards. Please submit your abstract electronically at www.cewit.org/conference2013. Submission guidelines and other information will be provided on the conference website.
Abstract Submission Deadline: July 1, 2013
Notification of Acceptance: August 1, 2013

In honor of 2012 National Postdoc Appreciation Week, Stony Brook University’s Office of Postdoctoral Affairs will be holding its first Postdoctoral Research Symposium on Thursday, September 20. Postdocs from Stony Brook University, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and Brookhaven National Laboratory are invited to participate and attend. Our goal is to promote a sense of community by having Postdocs from all three institutions informally educate each other about their research. The event is also meant to give Postdocs an opportunity to network with Stony Brook faculty, graduate students, staff and local employers.
The theme of the event is communicating science beyond one’s own field. Below is the link to the website describing the event as well as the brochure listing the abstracts for the presentations and the posters that will be displayed. We would like to invite faculty to attend both to support our Postdoc community as well as to learn about the research going on in other departments.
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Elizabeth Iorns
2012 Kauffman Foundation
Emerging Entrepreneur Award Winner
Dr. Elizabeth Iorns is co-founder and chief executive officer of Science Exchange, the online marketplace for science experiments. The mission of Science Exchange is to improve the efficiency of scientific research by making it easy for researchers to access resources and experimental expertise at any research institution. She has a Ph.D. in Cancer Biology from the Institute of Cancer Research in London, and a Post Doctorate in Cancer Biology from the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine. Her research has focused on identifying mechanisms of breast cancer development and progression. Based on her own experiences as a young investigator seeking core facility capabilities and collaborations outside her home university, Dr. Iorns co-founded Science Exchange in 2011. She has received a range of honors, including the 2012 Kauffman Foundation Emerging Entrepreneur Award, the Expedition Inspiration Fund for Breast Cancer Research Young Investigator Award and is a graduate of the Y Combinator Summer 2011 program.
EVENT REGISTRATION DEADLINE: September 15 – All attendees must complete a registration form in order to attend this event, regardless of whether or not you are giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster.

As new faculty arrive on campus this fall and confront – many of them for the first time – the need to find and compete for funding to support their research, there are some important ways that departments can help them get off to a strong start. We will discuss effective strategies for assisting and mentoring new faculty and things you’ll want to make sure they understand as they embark on their academic research careers.
The presenter, Lucy Deckard, is the President of Academic Research Funding Strategies, LLC, a consulting firm she founded in 2010 to help universities and faculty compete more successfully for research funding. She will be discussing how to help junior faculty accelerate their search for research funding.
Date: Thursday August 16, 2012
