Architecture for Advancing Scientific Collaboration and Promoting Citizen Science
— Recent evolutions and advancements in geospatial and cyber technologies are allowing individuals to generate and share large volumes of spatial data as Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI). The lack of reference frameworks for contributions of VGI is reducing its potential value in scientific research.

Behavioral Modeling for National Security Applications
— A new capability is required to assist the government analyst with mission planning to accomplish Human, Social, Behavioral, and Cultural (HSBC) objectives to maintain regional stability. Courses of actions must be actionable by the decision-maker. New simulation approaches are required to link geography and demographics, social theory, scenario development, operations research and ultra-scale simulations to provide new options.
