2016 ASEE Engineering Research Council (ERC)

The Sheraton, Silver Spring, MD
8777 Georgia Avenue
Silver Spring, MD 20910

March 7 - 9, 2016

ASEE’s Engineering Research Council Annual Conference sponsored by the Engineering Research Council and its Executive Board.

The Engineering Research Council of the ASEE exists to support and enhance research in engineering, technology, computing and applied science in educational organizations.

Engineering deans, associate deans, department chairs and other engineering research leaders are encouraged to attend.

Conference Goals:

  • To provide an overview of federal R&D budgets and upcoming priorities.
    1. Leaders from federal research funding organizations and policy organizations will discuss R&D trends and upcoming new programs and priorities.
  • To equip research leaders with tools and strategies to more effectively lead their research programs and organizations. Workshops and panels for 2016 include:
    1. Strategies for winning large center proposals
    2. Data management and the new federal open access requirements
    3. Research metrics and academic analytics
    4. Research laboratory safety

Format Change: This year’s conference will include major changes in format. First, we are significantly reducing time spent on formal presentations by federal funding agency representatives, instead asking speakers to provide power point slides as read-ahead material and devoting more time with them as interactive panel discussions and Q&A sessions. Also, we are increasing the number and scope of sessions on leadership tools and strategies.
