Registration and sign-in

Why do I need to Register?

You are required to create an account before posting. To take advantage of the features offered by this site, such as posting in discussion forums, commenting on material, uploading documents, and personalizing your experience you will need to have an account. It only takes a few seconds to register, and it is recommended you do so.

How do I Register?

To create an account you will need to visit the registration page and complete the form for creating a new account.  Here you will specify details such as your login name and email address. A password will be emailed to the address you have specified, so please make sure to use a valid email.  Please also make sure to allow emails from sospwebsite@nsf.gov in your anti-spam filter if you use one.

I have a created an account, How do I Login?

After successfully registering, an email will be sent to the address you specified with an automatically generated password. You can then visit the login page and enter your username and password to login.

I already logged in, why do I get logged off automatically?

When logging in if you do not check the "Remember Me" option you will be automatically logged off after 20 minutes of inactivity.  If you would like the site to always log you in automatically, please check the "Remember Me" checkbox.

I forgot my username and/or password.

If you forgot your username and/or password you can visit the Forget Your Password page and have both your username and a new password emailed to you by entering the email account you're registered with. You will be sent a new password since we store your password encrypted and have no way of retrieving the original value. Once you receive your username and new password you can login and change your password.

What if I've registered but still cannot login?

If you've registered and can't login, check to ensure you have a valid username and password.  If you are sure the username and password are valid, but still can't login you may either require account activation or your account may be on hold.  In this case it is best to contact the site administrators per email at sospwebsite@nsf.gov.

I've logged in before, but now can't login?

First check to ensure your username and password are correct. If you still can't login, please try deleting the cookies you have in your browser for CorelDRAW.com. If that doesn't work, please contact contact the site administrators per email at at sospwebsite@nsf.gov.
