Strategic Information Technology Workshop Program

Beginning in June 2001, a series of nine joint EU-US workshops will be held in Europe over a period of three years. Another series is planned to be held in the United States. The purpose of these workshops is to further cooperation in the area of information technology between the European Union and the United States and it is hoped that the workshops will lead to the identification of promising topics for future cooperation.

DIMACS will collaborate with the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics (ERCIM), which is handling the EU/NSF joint workshops from the EU end, and with the Strategic Workshop Review Committee (SWRC), a joint EU/US committee responsible for advising NSF and the European Commission on cooperation.

DIMACS' role will be to gather suggestions for future workshop topics from the U.S. information technology community and to provide support and travel reimbursement for U.S. participants in the workshops held in the European Union, under support from NSF.
