The University of Notre Dame, Indiana University and Purdue University are teaming up with the Indiana Innovation Institute for Indiana National Lab Day, connecting researchers with representatives from the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Laboratories.
Indiana University will host the event on Oct. 7 (Monday) at the IUPUI campus in Indianapolis. The event will feature discussions highlighting the state’s unique capabilities and advancements in research, and potential federal research opportunities.
“The distinguished faculty participating in these discussions represent the strength of Indiana’s research institutions to advance study in fields that will impact transportation, national security, robotics and our daily interactions with various technologies,” said Richard Billo, associate vice president for research, and professor of computer science and engineering at Notre Dame. “The joint research initiatives showcased as part of Indiana National Lab Day are just a few examples of the many collaborative efforts happening every day on campus.”
Researchers will cover four key state research initiatives:
Several national laboratories will participate in the event, including Argonne National Lab, Oak Ridge National Lab, Fermi National Lab, Sandia National Lab, and the National Energy Technology Lab.
Several of the Notre Dame faculty participating in panels during Indiana National lab Day include Thomas Corke, Clark Equipment professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering; Alan Seabaugh, Frank M. Freimann professor of electrical engineering and director of the Notre Dame Center for Nano Science and Technology; Nitesh Chawla, Frank M. Freimann Professor of Computer Science & Engineering and Director of The Interdisciplinary Center for Network Science & Applications (iCeNSA), Anthony Hoffman, associate professor of electrical engineering; Walter Scheirer, assistant professor of computer science and engineering; Alex Jemcov, research assistant professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering, and Adam Czajka, assistant professor of computer science and engineering.
