ECCS News & Events

August 14, 2014 - ECCS welcomes Dr. Mahmoud Fallahi to the EPMD Program as a new Program Director for the EPMD Optics and Photonics Group. Dr. Fallahi joins NSF from the College of Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona in Tucson. His areas of expertise include semiconductor lasers, integrated optics and photonics, hybrid organic-inorganic integration, micro/nanofabrication, and WDM components.

July 28, 2014 - NSF will webcast portions of a workshop on the future NSF nanotechnology infrastructure support program, to be held August 18-19, 2014.

 

 

NSF encourages innovative research proposals on optics and photonics through the recently announced Dear Colleague Letter - Optics and Photonics (NSF 14-091).

June 18, 2014 - Attention FY2015 CAREER applicants: Please note the new minimum CAREER award size for the Directorate for Engineering beginning in the FY15 competition (July 22, 2014 deadline), described in Dear Colleague Letter NSF 14-062.

June 9, 2014 - NSF thanks the community for providing input on the future NSF nanotechnology infrastructure support program (DCL 14-068) and remains committed to supporting nanotechnology infrastructure (press statement 14-002).

May 19, 2014 -  The ECCS Energy, Power and Adaptive Systems (EPAS) Program is now the Energy, Power, Control and Networks (EPCN) Program. Proposal submissions to this program will still use the same program code of PD 13-7607. Proposals already submitted to EPAS will be automatically transferred to EPCN.

ECCS welcomes Dr. Eyad Abed to the EPCN Program and Dr. Mona Zaghloul to the CCSS Program. Dr. Abed joins ECCS from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Institute of Systems Research at the University of Maryland, College Park. Dr. Zaghloul joins the division from the George Washington University, where she serves as professor and Chair in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and director of the Institute for MEMS/NEMS and VLSI Technologies.
