Dear Colleagues:

*The deadline for the submission of papers has been extended to September 15, 2016.*

The joint FOCAPO/CPC conference will take place at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort in Tucson AZ, Jan 8-12, 2007. 

World leaders from industry and academia have been invited to provide perspectives on industrial applications, grand challenges and emerging research trends. The conference includes special discussion sessions on (1) workforce development and on how to bring research to practice; and (2) future research directions.

We invite you to submit a short (6-page) paper for inclusion in the conference proceedings and presentation in one of the two poster sessions. 
Some submitted papers will be selected for oral presentation.

Finally, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and junior faculty are encouraged to apply for financial support. 

John Wassick, Larry Megan, Christos Maravelias and Erik Ydstie
