CISE Southwest Research Expansion Aspiring Investigators Conference Held in Tucson

The University of Arizona recently hosted a two-day conference in Tucson. The conference focused on identifying and developing collaborative proposals to the Directorate of Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) at the National Science Foundation (NSF). 

“The conference was well attended and we were pleased to welcome CISE investigators from institutions and organizations throughout the southwestern U.S.,” said University of Arizona Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering Vignesh Subbian, principal investigator for the effort and also an associate professor of systems and industrial engineering. “We had representation from 15 Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs). Many collaborations were created over the two days and our next steps are two virtual workshops in the next few months.”

If you are an investigator from a Southwest institution (including but not limited to AZ, CA, NM, NV, TX), you can join the CISE Southwest Community of Support, which provides information and resources for proposal development related to research expansion: 

The CISE Southwest Research Expansion Aspiring Investigators Conference took place in early December 2023 in Tucson.
