2016 NSF Cyber-Physical Systems Principal Investigators' Meeting

//www.tvworldwide.com/events/nsf/161031/The seventh annual CPS PI Meeting took place on Monday, October 31 and Tuesday, November 1, 2016 at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View (RACV) Hotel located in the Crystal City Community of Arlington, Virginia at 2800 South Potomac Avenue, Arlington, Virginia 22202. The RACV is 0.9 miles from the Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA).

The CPS Principal Investigators' Meeting provided a forum for a wide range of stakeholders in academia, industry, and Federal agencies to review new developments in CPS foundations, to identify new, emerging applications, and to discuss technology gaps and barriers. The program of the meeting  included presentations about projects funded by NSF and other agencies, keynotes, panels, discussion groups, and poster & demonstration sessions.

As in previous years, each PI was asked to upload to the CPS VO a YouTube-like video summarizing the research in terms suitable for a broader audience.

Keynote Speaker

Charlie Catlett


Charlie Catlett is a Senior Computer Scientist at Argonne National Laboratory, a Senior Fellow at the Argonne/University of Chicago Computation Institute, and a Senior Fellow at the Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago. He is also a Visiting Artist at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Charlie is the founding director of the Urban Center for Computation and Data (UrbanCCD),which brings scientists, artists, architects, technologists, and policy makers together to use computation, data analytics, and embedded system to analyze the dynamics, design, andresilient operation of cities. He leads the NSF-funded Array of Things project, establishing a network of 500 Argonne-developed intelligent sensor units in Chicago. Before joining Argonne in 2000, Charlie served as Chief Technology Officer of the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Beginning at NCSA's founding in 1985, he participated in the development of NSFNET, one of several early national networks that evolved into what we now experience as the Internet. During the exponential growth of the web following the release of NCSA's Mosaic web browser, his team developed and supported NCSA's scalable web server infrastructure. From 1999 to 2004 Charlie directed the design and deployment of I-WIRE, a dedicated fiber optic network funded by the State of Illinois, which connects research institutions in the Chicago area and downstate Illinois to support advanced research and education. From 2007-2011, Charlie served as Argonne's Chief Information Officer. Government Technology magazine named Charlie one of 25 "Doers, Dreamers & Drivers" of 2016. In 2014 Crain's Chicago Business recognized him as one of Chicago's "Tech 50" technology leaders. Charlie is a Computer Engineering graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
