(Feb. 16, 2011)--To help researchers kick-start a variety of projects, the UTSA Office of the Vice President for Research (VPR) is accepting proposals for the Collaborative Research Seed Grant Program (CRSGP), the Tenure-track Research Award Competition (TRAC), CONNECT funding and Cibolo Preserve projects.

CRSGP and TRAC proposals are due Monday, March 7. Connect proposals are due Monday, March 21. Cibolo Preserve proposals are due Monday, April 11, but will be reviewed on a rolling basis. All proposals must be submitted to the Office of the Assistant Vice President for Research in Multidisciplinary Studies Building Room 4.03.55, Main Campus, by 5 p.m. on the specified deadline date.

CRSGP proposals encourage collaboration within UTSA and with UTSA's external research partners such as industries and the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Eligible proposals will span multiple departments from within a single college (maximum award: $25,000), or multiple UTSA colleges, centers or institutes or a single UTSA organization with collaborators from one or more outside organizations (maximum award: $30,000).

TRAC proposals encourage UTSA assistant professors to pursue research in one of UTSA's five areas of research excellence: health, security, energy and the environment, sustainability, and human and social development. TRAC proposals must include a completed application, budget, five-page narrative and the primary investigator's curriculum vitae.

In partnership with Southwest Research Institute, UTSA is accepting funding proposals to support research in advanced materials, chemistry and chemical engineering, energy, the environment, manufacturing and security that include a minimum of one principal investigator from each organization and are likely to lead to external funding. Up to $200,000 is available for collaborative research through the CONNECT program.

VPR also is seeking proposals to conduct research and educational projects at the Cibolo Preserve, a 500-acre tract east of Boerne in Kendall County. Bisected by a creek, the land is characterized by its beauty, a variety of flora and fauna, and geological features such as a narrow canyon through a large exposure of caprinid reef and areas of architectural interest. Approved projects may be awarded up to $3,000.

To learn more about CRSGP/TRAC, CONNECT and Cibolo Preserve research funding, visit the UTSA Funding Opportunities website or contact Jim Massaro at 210-458-6691.

UTSA researcher is a star behind the cloud

A revolution in cloud computing is underway, and Ravi Sandhu believes it will be much bigger than the PC and Internet revolutions that have already changed the way we live. Sandhu, director of the UTSA Institute for Cyber Security, says UTSA is taking a leadership role in tackling three fundamental cloud technology problems: how to build and operate the cloud, how to use it profitably for diverse applications and how to keep it secure.

Sandhu, the Lutcher Brown Distinguished Chair in Cyber Security in the College of Sciences, and Ram Krishnan, assistant professor of electrical engineering in the UTSA College of Engineering, are funded by a $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to improve cloud security.
