GrandEng 2014
Workshop on Grand Challenges in Engineering and Applied Sciences
Princeton University, NJ — May 16-18, 2014

The Workshop on Grand Challenges for Applied Sciences and Engineering (GrandEng 2014) will be held at Princeton University, NJ between May 16-18, 2014.

GrandEng 2014 will bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry working on the broadly defined and cross-cutting areas of engineering and applied sciences. The participants will identify, present and discuss new, emerging, and hot ideas and trends in the important fields of engineering and applied sciences which especially have wide and immediate societal impact, including the enhancement of sustainability, security, health and well-being, and quality of life. Examples of the grand challenge themes include but not limited to:

  • Advanced Manufacturing
  • Big Data Analytics
  • Bioinformatics
  • Biomedical Technologies
  • Biophysics
  • Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Cybersecurity
  • Emergency Preparedness and Response
  • Engineering Education
  • Health Informatics
  • Microelectronics
  • Nanomanufacturing and Nanostructures
  • Nanomedicine
  • Network Science
  • Renewable Energy and Sustainability
  • Tissue Engineering
  • Virtual and Immersive Reality

The Workshop welcomes submissions for podium presentations.

Call for Presentations: The Workshop solicits presentations that propose new directions of research, advocate innovative approaches, report on noteworthy actual experience in an emerging area, or generate lively discussion around an important topic in engineering and applied sciences. Presentations on applications with high societal impact are especially welcome. Due to the diverse background of the attendees, the language and interpretation of the presented science should be intended for a general audience similar to “TED Talks”. The first day of the Workshop will be dedicated to such educational presentations from tenured or tenure track faculty. The presentations from post-doctoral associates and senior graduate students will take place in the second day.

Presentation submissions are expected to have one page abstract including figures, tables, and references. Text should be formatted in single column on 8.5-inch by 11-inch paper using 11-point fonts, and submitted in PDF format. The abstracts should be submitted through the online submission link before the deadline.

Forum on Academic Development: The Workshop will include a forum on May 17, 2014in conjunction with the GrandEng 2014. The forum will provide an environment for tenure-track and tenured faculty in the areas of engineering and applied sciences to collectively explore the ways to transform professional and personal life by understanding the common challenges faced in balancing research, teaching, and service and the most common mistakes faculty make. The topics of the forum includes but not limited to increasing research productivity, boosting professional writing performance, getting control of time and improving relation with funding resources.

Social Event: The last day of the Workshop provides for an open agenda for letting attendees to socialize. Tours will be organized to local academic and industrial research institutions and non-profit organizations in New Jersey and New York area. This event is open to all attendees and their guests.

Important Dates:

Abstract submission due: April 20, 2014
Notification to authors: April 27, 2014
Registration Deadline: May 12, 2014
