                   Announcement and Call for Proposals
for the second year of the R&D Program for the Study of 
the Physics and
               Detectors for future e+e- Linear 

We initiated a program to provide financial support for 
the study of the 
Physics and Detectors for future e+e- Linear Colliders a 
little over a year 
ago.  A statement of the purpose of this program and a 
description of the
procedures and format of the proposals can be found on 
the web at or, start 
at the homepage
of the Worldwide e+e- Study, go to "American Activities," 
and from there click
on "Announcement for Linear Collider Detector Simulation 
and Physics Studies,
Call for Proposals".

Year 1 of this Program (July 1999 - July 2000)

The first round of proposals were due by March 15, 1999.  
There were funding
requests from 20 groups, of which we were able to fund 11 
groups.  Total
funding approximated:  
		SLAC/DOE	$200K
		Fermilab/DOE	$100K
		NSF		$40K
Almost all of the allocated funds were for half time 
support of Post Docs for
Physics and Detector Simulation Studies.  There was a 
promise that productive
grants would be continued to provide for a second year of 
support for these
Post Docs.

Year 2 of the Program (July 2000 - July 2001)

We have received promises from the labs to support the 
second year of this
program at the level of:
		SLAC/DOE	$300K
		Fermilab/DOE	$150K
The NSF promised to try to double their level of support 
over the first year,
depending, of course, on the quality of the proposals.

The procedures for proposals worked well last year, so we 
will use the same
procedures again this year (see Procedures for Proposals 
and Content of
Proposals).  The due date for the second round of 
proposals will be

May 1, 2000 - proposals due

Proposals should be sent to Professor Charles Prescott 
who has agreed to chair
the selection committee again for the second year.

Proposals from New Groups
who did not submit a proposal last year are not only 
welcome, but encouraged.

Proposals funded last year
These groups are encouraged to submit proposals again for 
the second year of
the program.  In addition to the items listed under 
Content of Proposals, a
discussion should be included describing the progress 
achieved in the first
year and the rationale for continued funding.

Proposals we were not able to fund last year
These groups may wish to submit the same proposal as last 
year or change them
in whatever way they feel is appropriate for the second 
year of the program.
