UT to Host NSF Assistant Director for CISE

Margaret MartonosiMargaret Martonosi, National Science Foundation’s assistant director for Computer and information Science and Engineering (CISE), will visit campus virtually on Thursday, October 28, 1–3 p.m. to hear from the CISE community about their thoughts and ideas for the future of CISE.

With an annual budget of more than $1 billion, CISE directorate at NSF has the mission to uphold the Nation’s leadership in scientific discovery and engineering innovation through its support of fundamental research and education in computer and information science and engineering as well as transformative advances in research cyberinfrastructure.

Date: October 28, 2021

Time: 1–3 p.m.

Registration: Please register no later than September 10.

In her role at CISE, Martonosi works to advocate for and set the direction of research funding across the important topic areas comprised within the CISE space. Past CISE research funding has planted the seeds that have germinated into major scientific, economic, and societal impacts including advances in artificial intelligence, cloud computing, search, and fundamentals of computational theory and computer hardware and systems design.

The event is open to faculty and graduate students in relevant research areas, with the special note that CISE’s interests span many disciplines outside traditional science and engineering fields, such as education, social science, and humanities fields whose research and scholarship relates to education and workforce development solutions and societal implications of technology applications (e.g., artificial intelligence).
