    Part I - Making Sense of Proposals
    9:00am - 12:00pm
    Fagin Hall Room 213
    All too often, the textual portions of scientific writing seem to be a data dump of one observation after another. In this workshop, we look at how readers' experience for context and emphasis can guide writers toward logical development of the scientific substance.
    Breakfast and registration from 8:30 - 9:00 am
    Register Here!

    Lunch - 14th Floor Faculty Lounge - BRB (12:00pm - 1:15pm Register Here! *note: you must attend Part I in order to attend luncheon

    Part II - Working with Drafts
    1:30pm - 3:30pm
    Fagin Hall room 218
    In this workshop, we investigate a common problem of scientific documents: How to present ALL the data and still ensure that the important information receives its proper emphasis. Using Examples taken from reviews of grant applications, we explore how changing simply the structure of the language can lead to changes in the interpretation of the science.

    *this part of the day will be shared with BPP Faculty members. There are limited spots available for postdocs
