In the second quarter of FY 2016, there were several advances in the university’s research enterprise that I am pleased to tell you about.
Some major awards over the past year worth mentioning are: a $2.5 Million award from Siemens for a Scintillation Materials Research Center, a $1.67 Million award from DOE-ORNL-UT-Battelle to further the work of the Joint Institute for Biological Sciences, and a $1.15 Million award from Honeywell for Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Some of our other “wins” are detailed in the report.
Robert Nobles has been promoted to associate vice chancellor for research in the Office of Research and Engagement.

Algorithms in the Field (AitF) NSF 16-515
This program encourages closer collaboration between two groups of researchers: (i) theoretical computer science researchers, who focus on the design and analysis of provably efficient and provably accurate algorithms for various computational models; and (ii) other computing and information researchers including a combination of systems and domain experts (very broadly construed – including but not limited to researchers in computer architecture, programming languages and systems, computer networks, cyber-physical systems, cyber-human systems, machine learning, artificial intelligence and its applications, database and data analytics, etc.) who focus on the particular design constraints of applications and/or computing devices.
SunShot might sound like the next wave of NASA missions, or perhaps even the latest weapon of a James Bond villain, but it’s a US Department of Energy research initiative that holds the potential to reshape the way we think about, gather, and use solar energy.
The Office of Research Integrity continues its Responsible Conduct of Research Lunch & Learn Series in the spring semester with six new sessions covering various aspects of research integrity.
The sessions will be held in Hodges Library Auditorium. Pizza will be provided to registered participants beginning at 11:30 a.m. outside the auditorium.
