 Application to Conduct an Experiment

Applicants interested in attending an NPS FX event to conduct an experiment should submit an experiment proposal for consideration. Multiple proposals addressing different experiments may be submitted and reviewed individually, however each proposal must address only one experiment. Experiment proposals are submitted through a series of web fields. Please include all information in the web fields, attached documents will not be considered.

Do not submit experiment proposals with requests for funding. Your submission will be treated as information only; it will not be treated as a proposal for funding. NPS FX experiments are self-funded by experimenters.

For more information, see What is NPS FX? 

Please review "Important Dates" above for submission deadlines for each event


Experiment Proposals for the 18-2 event have closed.  Please email npsfx@nps.edu for more information about late experiment submissions.
