Panel Discussion for Young Transportation Faculty Members
Chandra Bhat, Joe J. King Chair Professor, University of Texas at Austin
This panel for young transportation faculty members will feature experienced and recently tenured academics, as well as faculty members within two years of their academic appointment, who will discuss the unique role faculty members play in society and how young faculty members can successfully launch their careers (and enjoy that process at the same time). The most recent faculty appointees will also help identify areas where more support would be helpful. The panel will broadly discuss elements related to scholarly research and funding considerations, time management, work/life balance, writing habits development, professional service, teaching and scaffolded active learning techniques, and the intangibles that can facilitate progress toward tenure-ship and beyond. This panel will provide the basis for a more extensive (and intensive) in-person two day young faculty preparation workshop starting in the early Fall of 2022 (as new faculty members get settled in their new institutions, and other young faculty members return to the new academic cycle). At the same time, young faculty members from the audience will have an opportunity to voice their thoughts during the upcoming panel discussion to help shape the planned in-person workshop this coming fall.
Publishing and Reviewing for ASCE Journals Workshop

Funding Opportunities for Research Related to Infrastructure Systems and Smart and Connected Communities at National Science Foundation
Yueyue Fan, Professor UC Davis
In this work, we will discuss funding opportunities related to infrastructure systems and smart and connected communities at the National Science Foundation. Challenges brought by problems in these areas often require cross-disciplinary efforts from engineering, mathematics, and physical and social sciences. Therefore, we would welcome an audience from broad academic communities. Specifically, we will focus on four NSF programs: Civil Infrastructure Systems (CIS), Human Disasters and Built Environment (HDBE), Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), and Smart and Connected Communities (S&CC), including their scopes, review criteria, and different expectations. Tips and common errors to avoid involved in proposal preparation will also be discussed. In addition, this will be an opportunity for us to gather thoughts and suggestions from the ASCE research community.
