2014 October Net-Centric I/UCRC Meeting

The National Science Foundation Net-Centric Software and Systems Industry/University Cooperative Research Center Net-Centric I/UCRC met on October 8-9, 2014 in the Great Wolf Lodge Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas.

The Net-Centric I/UCRC organizes two meetings per year. At these semi-annual meetings, faculty and students make presentations based on their current research projects. These projects are generously funded by the industrial members of the center. After the presentations, students and faculty from each participating University present posters which visually illustrate his or her project. During this time industry members and other faculty take the opportunity to walk around to view each piece of work. Following the presentations was a reception for all in attendance; where students, faculty, and industrial members could mingle, collaborate, and discuss work in progress. New project proposals are reviewed for funding by the Industrial Advisory Board of the center.

At present the I/UCRC includes 19 industrial members and 5 universities (with UNT as the lead university). For more information, contact Dr. Krishna Kavi, Director of the Center, at
