Possibly of interest to US members of the group.

Begin forwarded message:

The US National Science Foundation has announced a new program called
Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC).  The program is open to receiving
grant proposals and has a special interest in Social, Behavioral, and
Economic sciences (SBE) science research. ****
** **
The program is managed by three Directorates at the NSF, the Social,
Behavioral, and Economic sciences (SBE), Computer and Information Science
and Engineering (CISE), and the Office of Cyberinfrastructure (OCI).
Computer science and applied SBE science work should be submitted to CISE.
Proposals that facilitate a transition from research to practice should be
submitted to OCI.  Proposals which both contribute to cybersecurity and
advance basic SBE science research should be submitted to SBE.  Proposals
can also be submitted to multiple Directorates and co-reviewed if
** **
Successful SBE submissions will involve contributions *to* rather than
applications *of* the SBE sciences.  SBE-submitted SaTC proposals should
help develop new knowledge or methods that contribute to the SBE sciences,
while helping to develop a secure and trustworthy cyberspace.  In addition,
SBE / SaTC is interested in proposals for workshops and other intellectual
engagements that may advance SBE science efforts in the cybersecurity field.

You can learn more about the SaTC program via our solicitation:****

We are holding a Webinar this Friday, Dec. 2, 1pm EST, to further describe
the program and answer questions about it.  If you are interested, please
register, ideally by end-of-day Dec. 1, at the following URL.  Registration
is partly manual, so do not expect immediate acceptance.  If requests
exceed capacity, some requests would be denied.  After your registration is
accepted, you will get an email with a URL to join the Webinar.****
** **
** **
We will also be releasing a FAQ about the SBE portion of the program
shortly. ****
** **
Finally, we are seeking to hold online and face-to-face events to introduce
social scientists and computer scientists to each other and their work,
offering an opportunity to network and to identify potential
collaborations.  These events will take place after proposals are due for
the current solicitation, but may be useful for any planned 2013
** **
If you are interested in being contacted about the SaTC program and any of
these future events, please email Matt Pines at mpines at  Please
include your name, the email address at which you would like to be
contacted, your academic field, and your professional affiliation.  He will
add you to our mailing list for SBE / SaTC, and you will receive notice of
these future events.****
** **
Please feel free to share this email with anyone who might be interested in
the program.  Similarly, please contact me if I can provide any additional
information about the program.****
** **
I look forward to seeing your submissions.****
