Professor Pascal Van Hentenryck received a Defense Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (DEPSCoR) award for "Adaptive and Robust Resource Allocation and Scheduling". The funding will support research on developing novel computer applications, based on mathematical modeling, for fast and efficient decision making.
Of the 103 projects submitted, twenty-five were competitively selected. This is the first DEPSCoR award for Brown and Rhode Island, which is designed to expand research opportunities in states that have traditionally received the least funding in federal support for university research.
The list of projects selected for fiscal 2006 DEPSCoR funding can be found on the Web at: http://www.defenselink.mil/news/Mar2006/d20060328DEPSCoR.pdf.
