Thoughts from the Chair

There are many ways to be active and support our division. One of the most important ways to be involved with the PCEE Division is to volunteer to review abstracts and papers! Reviewers commit approximately 3 hours to review abstracts in October and approximately 4 hours to review papers in February. Contact the PCEE Program Chair, Jenny Keshwani ( for more information or to sign up.

Got an idea for science and engineering research? Send it to the NSF 2026 Idea Machine

If you’ve ever had an idea about how the National Science Foundation (NSF) could transform fundamental research, a huge window of opportunity is about to open. From Aug. 31, 2018 through Oct. 26, 2018, the foundation will open the entry window for its first-ever NSF 2026 Idea Machine, a competition that gives entrants a chance to help inform the agenda for basic research, through the Nation’s 250th anniversary in 2026 and beyond.

NSF is looking for fresh ideas — let’s contribute!

Nomination Announcement:

You are invited to nominate interview participants for a National Science Foundation-funded study entitled “Pushing Students Away: Developing a Research Agenda for Broadening Participation of African Americans in Engineering & Computer Science.” The purpose of this project is to investigate the research-to-practice cycle as it relates to broadening participation in engineering and computer science. The study is being conducted by Drs. Jeremi London, Walter Lee, and Bevlee Watford, professors of engineering education at Virginia Tech.

We are investigating the experiences of stakeholders across all segments of the K-12-to-workforce pathway traversed by African Americans, in particular. We are also interested in learning how to improve future research and practice efforts for broadening participation in engineering and computer science. We hope to hold a 60-90 minute interviews a using web-based platform, and are inviting you to nominate interview participants for the study using this link:   Self-nominations and/or multiple nominations are allowed. If you have any questions, please email Dr. Walter Lee at or Dr. Jeremi London at Nominations will be accepted until Oct. 15, 2018.
