Participants can be drawn from both within and outside the College. Possible goals of a NIWG meeting might be to initiate an interdisciplinary line of work or to work together on a grant proposal, or to collaborate on a paper or collection of papers. The collaborative aspect of these kinds of meetings and their size will distinguish them from a standard workshop.
NIWGs must satisfy the following criteria:
- NIWGs are meant to be small (on the order of 8 or so participants).
- NIWGs must be proposed/sponsored by faculty from at least two departments with an explicitly interdisciplinary theme.
- NIWGs can extend from one to five days.
- The PIs on the NIWG must produce a summary document for the Neukom Institute.
