Special Announcements

New NSF is pleased to announce that James F. Kurose of the University of Massachusetts (UMass) Amherst will serve as the Assistant Director (AD) of CISE beginning in January 2015. During the interim, Suzi Iacono is serving as the Acting Assistant Director.

New NSF is seeking input on the establishment of a national network of "Big Data Regional Innovation Hubs" to stimulate and help sustain partnerships to further the goals of the National Big Data R&D Initiative.

The report from the NSF-sponsored Cybersecurity Ideas Lab contains actionable recommendations for enhancing the security of the Internet ecosystem.

Updates on CISE Leadership:

  • CISE is pleased to announce that Lynne Parker of the University of Tennessee-Knoxville will serve as the Division Director of IIS beginning in January and will be joining as an expert this fall.
  • Chaitan Baru from the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UCSD has recently joined CISE as Senior Advisor for Data Science.
