Wednesday Keynote

Title: The Computing and Information Science and Engineering Landscape: A Look Forward

Speaker: Margaret Martonosi, National Science Foundation (NSF)

Abstract: The United States National Science Foundation (NSF) supports a majority of US academic research in the Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) topic areas. A long-time computing researcher herself, Dr. Margaret Martonosi is now serving a 4-year term leading the NSF CISE Directorate, and stewarding the CISE directorate’s $1B+ annual budget on behalf of research, education, workforce and infrastructure funding in CISE topic areas and for science as a whole. In this talk, she will discuss key technical themes for the field, and how CISE is developing programmatic opportunities to advance research related to them. She will particularly note how ESWEEK topic areas relate to these technical priorities. More broadly, she will discuss CISE and NSF in the context of the global research efforts, and our approach to industry and international research partnerships.

Bio: Margaret Martonosi leads the US National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Directorate for Computer and information Science and Engineering (CISE). With an annual budget of more than $1B, the 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. While at NSF, Dr. Martonosi is on leave from Princeton University where she is the Hugh Trumbull Adams ’35 Professor of Computer Science. Dr. Martonosi’s research interests are in computer architecture and hardware-software interface issues in both classical and quantum computing systems. Dr. Martonosi is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. She is a Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
