The Trident Initiative would like to invite you to a campus-wide faculty research forum on the above date, wherein faculty from a variety of disciplines in the arts, sciences, engineering, and business can brainstorm and explore various research ideas and possibilities for collaboration. We have observed this model at some leading academic Conferences and have found them to be very useful in generating a lot of new ideas and in promoting cross-fertilization of research among various disciplines. We are suggesting some possible ideas below this message, but welcome others as well.
The event will unfold as follows:
2- Faculty will arrive at each table based upon interest in particular topics. The discussion will occur for about 15 minutes after which the participants from one table will rotate to another table and begin a discussion on another idea. Attending faculty are not required to rotate across all tables or necessarily explore all ideas.
We are organizing this event on an experimental basis with the hope that if it generates sufficient faculty interest, it can become a regular event on a semi-annual or annual basis. Anchor-moderators will summarize the discussions at their table towards the end of the forum meeting.
The success of this event will, quite obviously, depend on the interest and participation of faculty from all disciplines. In particular, we hope that several of you will be willing to serve as host anchor-moderators based on your particular idea of choice. We will be grateful if you could indicate your interest in leading or participating in the forum in order to help us in our planning for the event.
In closing, we would like to add that any publishable research ideas from this forum will be eligible for travel award to the United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE) Conference in San Antonio, Texas in January, 2008, or the Self Employment in the Arts (SEA) Conference in Chicago in March, 20008, for up to $1,000 per paper regardless of the number of contributors. So, please bring your ideas and your creative energy to this event. We look forward to seeing you all on March 2nd!
With best wishes,
Keramat Poorsoltan and Sudhir Singh
