NOTE from iNEER: Occasionally and as an experiment, we will be forwarding to you without comment selected public announcements from public and private science and engineering organizations that we feel have general appeal to the worldwide iNEER community.  We begin below with an item circulated to staff within the U.S. National Science Foundation. Our aim is to inform and promote understanding of new discoveries and developments in science and technology. In all cases, items do not contain privileged information and the information is publicly available, and all items are forwarded only with the permission of the author(s) of the items.
