Solicitation Number: IARPA-BAA-10-06 Event Date: June 17, 2010 Synopsis The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) will host a Proposers' Day Conference for the Foresight and Understanding from Scientific Exposition (FUSE) Program on 17 June 2010, in anticipation of the release of a new solicitation in support of the program. The Conference will be held from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm EDT in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. The purpose of the conference will be to provide information on FUSE, to address questions from potential proposers, and to provide a forum for potential proposers to present their capabilities for teaming opportunities. This announcement serves as a pre-solicitation notice and is issued solely for information and planning purposes. The Proposers' Day Conference does not constitute a formal solicitation for proposals or proposal abstracts. Conference attendance is voluntary and is not required to propose to future solicitations (if any) associated with this program. Program Description and Goals The globalization of science and technology (S&T) means that technical capabilities can emerge from diverse technical areas anywhere in the world. The FUSE Program will explore theories and models for the detection of significant technical capability emergence that can be observed from the worldwide scientific, technical, and patent literatures. FUSE will develop and test quantitative techniques that scan the full-length technical text across a large number of documents for time-dependent, pattern-based signals within a wide range of technical areas and multiple human languages. The Program will include empirical testing against examples of real-world capability emergence. The FUSE Program will build upon substantial prior research and development in diverse technical areas, including: information extraction, machine learning, classification, clustering, time series summarization and analysis, network analysis, graph theory, statistical inference, technology forecasting, research and development management, business innovation, diffusion of innovation and market dynamics, bibliometrics and scientometrics, history of science, sociology of science, and psychology of science and emergence. Collaborative efforts/teaming among potential performers are strongly encouraged. It is anticipated that teams will be multidisciplinary with expertise in the areas outlined above. IARPA anticipates that universities and companies from around the world will participate in this research. REGISTRATION INFORMATION Attendees must register no later than 4:00pm EDT, 10 June 2010, at https://conference.brtrc.com/FUSE_pd. Directions to the conference facility and other materials are available on the website. No walk-in registrations will be allowed.
