Abstract: The primary function of the U.S. Army Research Office (ARO) is to fund innovative basic research that is of interest to the Army. ARO has recently opened up new programs with mission of focusing on international research, including three new programs based in London, focusing on Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. This seminar will give an overview of these new programs, describe research interests in the Network Science and Intelligent Systems program, and describe the funding opportunities.

Bio: Dr. Robert Ulman runs the U.S. Army Research Office (ARO) Network Science and Intelligence Systems Program. In this role, Dr. Ulman is formulating a new basic research program within the network science discipline that encompasses European, African, Israel, and Middle Eastern countries. This entails identification and assessment of basic research that is applicable to Army, funding this research, and facilitating collaborations with Army scientists and transitions. In addition, he acts as an advisor and ARO liaison to the Distributed Analytics and Information Science International Technology Alliance (DAIS-ITA), which is a collaborative effort between US Army Research Lab (ARL) and the UK Defense Science and Technical Lab (DSTL). Previously, Dr. Ulman was the program manager for the Wireless Communications and Networks program at ARO , primarily funding U.S. universities. At ARO , he built a research program in wireless communications networking, concentrating on research that is applicable to the tactical mobile battlefield. His program included social networking for several years until this research area was spun off into a new program. This part of the program emphasized the application of information theory and other mathematical and engineering techniques to analysis of the vast amount of social data created by the internet revolution. He will continue to run this program until a replacement can be hired. Dr. Ulman received his BS in electrical engineering from Virginia Tech in 1984, his MS from The Ohio State University in 1986, his PhD from University of Maryland in 1998..
