First Call for Proposals of the CAS Emerging and Selected Topics for Industry Forums (CASIF) 2022

We are happy to make the first call for proposals of the CAS Emerging and Selected Topics for Industry Forums (CASIF) 2022!

CASS is continuing its CASIF program on emerging and cross-discipline topics, where industrial speakers describe real-world challenges and academic speakers describe potential technologies that could address those challenges. For example, in past years, Alibaba, IBM, and Intel have co-sponsored forums on AI. 

We are calling for proposals from CASS local chapters and companies to co-host a half-day or one-day forum with invited speakers (may include CASS Distinguished Lecturers, international/local industry/academic speakers). The goals of these Industry Forums are to increase interaction between academia and industry and demonstrate CASS technical leadership.

CASS will provide funding support for up to 50% of the expenses for each selected Industry Forum depending on the funding availability. (Some industry supports can be in-kind contributions, e.g., venue, logistics.)

For CASIF 2022, there will be two calls for proposals:

  • First deadline of proposals: 1 March 2022
  • First announcement of results: 15 March 2022
  • Second call for proposals: 15 June 2022
  • Second deadline of proposals: 31 July 2022
  • Second announcement of results: 15 August 2022
  • Events: from 16 March - 15 December 2022

(Please notice that all forums must be held before 15 December 2022 and awarded funding cannot be transferred to the next year). 

You may submit proposals online here. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any further information or detail.
