Algorithms in the Field (AitF) Program Webinar

December 18, 2014, 3PM to 4PM EST

NSF Room 1105


The Algorithms in the Field (AitF) program is a new NSF/CISE funding opportunity that aims to promote collaboration between theory researchers and those in more applied areas.

Bridging the gap between theory and practice in the design, analysis, implementation, and evaluation of algorithms can lead to new fields as well as broader cutting-edge applications. The premise is that by working jointly “in the field” researchers from these different communities will continually inform each other, innovate in their respective areas, and forge algorithms that are simultaneously validated by theory, systems, and applied communities.

Please join CISE for a webinar from 3:00pm to 4:00pm EST on Thursday, December 18, 2014, where we will cover the objectives of the AitF program, award types, and submission requirements.  The webinar will conclude with a question and answer session.
