Min Wu selected for NAE Frontiers of Engineering Symposium

ISR-affiliated Assistant Professor Min Wu (ECE/UMIACS) is among 88 of the nation's brightest young engineers chosen by the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) to participate in its 11th annual Frontiers of Engineering Symposium, Sept. 22-24, 2005, at the GE Global Research Center in Niskayuna, N.Y.

Frontiers of Engineering was initiated by NAE to bring together outstanding engineers (ages 30-45) who are engaged in pioneering technical work and leading-edge research in a variety of disciplines. The three-day event provides an opportunity for top-notch engineers, early in their careers, to learn about cutting-edge development in fields other than their own, thereby facilitating collaborative work and the transfer of new approaches and techniques across fields.

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. Each Frontiers symposium covers four topics that vary from year to year. This year's symposium will explore aspects of ID and verification technologies, the engineering of complex systems, engineering for developing communities, and energy. Participants were nominated by fellow engineers or organizations, and chosen from 220 applicants. They come from various backgrounds, including industry, academia, and government.

In addition to this recognition by the NAE, Wu was recently honored with a Young Investigator Award from the Office of Naval Research (ONR), and also co-authored an award-winning paper on multimedia forensics. Established in 1964, the NAE is an independent, nonprofit institution whose members are elected by their peers for seminal contributions to engineering. The Academy provides leadership and guidance to the nation on the application of engineering resources to vital issues.
