Title: Navigating NSF: Finding support for your IE/OR-related proposals
Abstract: As a discipline, industrial engineering and operations research covers broad and diverse domain areas, including (but not limited to) manufacturing, energy, healthcare, logistics, public safety, infrastructure, and many other fields. At NSF, IE/OR-related research is supported through many core programs as well as special initiatives. This talk will introduce many of the NSF programs that support IE/OR research, discuss the review process at NSF, and provide guidance and advice on how to find the best home for your research projects at NSF.
