The Georgia Tech Agile Communication Architectures team is one of 30 teams selected to participate in the DARPA Spectrum Collaboration Challenge. The team is spearheaded by Matthieu Bloch, an associate professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Sebastian Pokutta, David M. McKenney Family Associate Professor in ISyE. The team comprises graduate students from both schools and comes out of the interdisciplinary Center for Machine Learning at Georgia Tech (ML@GT).

More than 50 professionals from industry, government and academia participated in the first ever Georgia Tech-sponsored ports logistics conference April 10-11 in Savannah. The program was sponsored by DINALOG (Dutch Institute for Advanced Logistics) and the Georgia Tech Supply Chain & Logistics Institute (SCL).  


Dr. John Bartholdi recently held the race, which involves shipping packages from the Supply Chain & Logistics Institute at Georgia Tech to a hard-to-reach destination around the world.

As human spaceflight inches closer to launching a Mars mission, onboard planning and mission adjustments loom large as potential issues. On a Mars flight, the communications lag time with Mission Control will be between four and 22 minutes, and astronauts need to be able to make some decisions on their own, especially in the event of an emergency.

When the best-laid plans need to be adjusted, how do astronauts reconnoiter?

This question is at the heart of "Technologies for Mixed-Initiative Plan Management for Human Space Flight," research conducted by three Georgia Tech engineering professors, including ISyE's Martin Savelsbergh, James C. Edenfield Chair and professor.

Shi will serve a four-year term as the editor-in-chief of IISE Transactions, which is the monthly flagship journal of the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers.
