Derek Paley to speak at 2016 US Frontiers of Engineering Symposium


Associate Professor Derek Paley (AE/ISR) will be a speaker at the 2016 US Frontiers of Engineering Symposium. The Frontiers of Engineering meeting is organized annually by the National Academy of Engineering and brings together a select group of emerging engineering leaders from industry, academia, and government labs. The event will be held September 19-21, 2016 in Houston.

Paley will be speaking at the “Extreme Engineering: Extreme Autonomy in Space, Air, and Land” session, and has been asked to present on “Autonomy Underwater: Ocean Sampling by Autonomous Underwater Vehicles.”

In addition to the “Extreme Engineering” session, three other topics will be explored at the symposium: “Pixels at Scale: High-Performance Computer Graphics and Vision”; “Water Desalination and Purification”; and “Technologies for Understanding and Treating Cancer.” Speakers will give presentations on pioneering research and technical work related to each topic. The meeting is designed to allow ample time for Q&A and discussion during the formal sessions and also provides many informal opportunities for exchange among the participants.

About the symposium
NAE's U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium is a three-day meeting that brings together a select group of the nation's outstanding young engineers (aged 30-45) from industry, academia, and government to discuss pioneering technical and leading-edge research in a variety of engineering fields. The annual event provides an opportunity for approximately 100 leading young engineers to learn about cutting-edge developments in fields other than their own, thereby facilitating cross-disciplinary collaboration and the transfer of new approaches and techniques. Through both formal sessions and informal discussions, the meetings have proven an effective mechanism for the establishment of cross-disciplinary and cross-sector contacts among future engineering leaders.

“The USFOE symposium is the perfect network for these talented, early-career engineers to develop those personal and professional relationships that will shape their work and ultimately impact our world,” said former University of Maryland President and current NAE President C. D. (Dan) Mote, Jr.

Established in 1964, the NAE is an independent, nonprofit institution that provides leadership and guidance to the nation on the application of engineering resources to vital issues.
