Dr. Fahmida N. Chowdhury

Wednesday Noon (June 8) Special Sessions

Funding Programs in the NSF Office of International Science and Engineering (OISE)

In this interactive special session, the main presenter (Fahmida N. Chowdhury, Program Director, NSF Office of International Science and Engineering, OISE) will present the funding

programs currently available in this office. All these programs require international collaboration and are open to all fields of science and engineering that are supported by NSF. The goal of the session is to create awareness in the control systems community about these funding opportunities, which may not be as well-known as the main disciplinary programs at NSF. Given that the controls community is international and multidisciplinary, it is possible that many researchers attending the American Control Conference will find these funding opportunities attractive and interesting. The main presentation will be followed by two other presentations: one by a PI funded by one of these programs, and the other, by his international collaborators who participated in the project. Finally, there will be a questions and answers session where the three speakers will answer audience questions.
