Associate Professor Reza Ghodssi (ECE/ISR/NanoCenter) is among 83 of the nation's outstanding young engineers invited to attend the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) 2007 U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium in Redmond, Wa., September 24-26, 2007.

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 these 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.

This year's symposium will explore trustworthy computer systems, safe water technologies, modeling and simulating human behavior, biotechnology for fuels and chemicals, and control of protein conformations.

Ghodssi was nominated by University of Maryland President C.D. (Dan) Mote to participate in the NAE Frontiers Symposium.

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. For more information, visit the NAE Web site at http://www.nae.edu/frontiers.
