V.S. Subrahmanian elected Fellow of AAAS

ISR-affiliated Professor and Director of the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies V.S. Subrahmanian (CS/UMIACS) has been named a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). He is being recognized "for contributions in computer science and multidisciplinary computing, for techniques to implement multiple data sources, software programs, automatically build group behavioral models and forecast group behaviors." The Fellow certificate will be presented to Subrahmanian at the AAAS annual meeting on February 14.

Subrahmanian joins Professor Avis Cohen (Biology/ISR) as the second ISR faculty member to receive the award this year.

The AAAS is the world's largest general scientific society, founded in 1848, and includes some 262 affiliated societies and academies of science serving 10 million individuals. The tradition of AAAS fellows, who are chosen by their peers, began in 1874. The non-profit AAAS (www.aaas.org) is open to all and fulfills its mission to "advance science and serve society" through initiatives in science policy; international programs; science education; and more.
