Voices From the Future: About the Lecture Series
In honor of the National Science Foundation's (NSF) 60th anniversary, the National Science Board (NSB) initiated "Voices From the Future," a lecture series where distinguished speakers make presentations at NSB meetings in 2010. With speakers nominated by the NSF directorates, the series focuses on (1) investigators relatively early in their careers with potential for making an impact on research, science education, communication and broadening participation; and (2) individuals who have made stunning discoveries that have changed and/or influenced the direction of science. The distinguished speakers and their presentation dates are:
- February 4: Paul Y. Oh, director, Autonomous Systems Lab, Drexel University
- August 26: Luis von Ahn, assistant professor, computer science department, Carnegie Mellon University
- December 2: Emily E. Brodsky, associate professor of Earth and planetary sciences, University of California at Santa Cruz
The lectures are held at NSF in Arlington, Va., in Room 1235 and they are open to the public. Please check the posted agendas for NSB meetings noted above for specific presentation times.
