       How many times have you heard talk in the hallways and  lounges
  about  "Centres of Excellence", IRAP, NSERC, "matching funds", URIF,
  MITT, etc. etc.  and not had a clue what the fuss was about?   Well,
  the  fuss  is  about research funding -- the life-blood of research.
  Without it the  funding  for  graduate  student  stipends,  computer
  hardware  or  software, support staff, conference travel and limited
  term faculty positions would not exist.  The granting  game  is  the
  single  most  important  facet of academia that they never teach you
  about in computer science or engineering grad school.

       This informal talk will emphasize what the  granting  game  is,
  why  it is important, and who the players are in the Canadian scene.
  There will be no written test at the end of the talk.

       Coffee  and  doughnuts  will  be  served  in  addition  to  the
       traditional hot cider.  All are welcome.

                             Coming Soon
