The algorithmic problem solving group conducts research into mathematical method, in particular the problem-solving skills involved in the formulation and solution of algorithmic problems. Our goal is to articulate these skills primarily by way of concrete examples, but also by the development of appropriate mathematical theory.

Graduates in computer science, engineering, and engineering technology (CSET) will make important decisions that will influence directions of technological and societal developments. Indirectly, CSET education sways the future and the conference theme, “Imagining and Engineering Future CSET Education,” envisions participants in serious, reflective conversations about the future of this key driver. The 2009 program continues past FIE conversations as well as innovations necessary to engage students with essential technical, cultural, and learning skills required of graduates entering the global workplace.
FIE 2009 has a thought-provoking technical program that, like every FIE conference, was made possible by a large group of dedicated professionals who volunteered their time to this cause. The program co-chairs from the sponsoring societies (IEEE Education Society, the IEEE Computer Society, and the ASEE Educational Research and Methods Division) include Mani Mina, David Cordes, and Richard Layton. They were joined by the international program co-chairs, Melany M. Ciampi and Edmundo Tovar Caro, in the review of the abstracts, management of the paper review process, and the organization of the paper sessions. With the help of 35 volunteers, they coordinated review of 563 abstracts and 393 manuscripts to select 369 papers for the conference, from which the authors submitted 355 full papers and works-in-progress. Also, our special sessions and workshop chair, Dan Moore, has selected a compelling set of special sessions and workshops that includes 8 workshops, 12 special sessions, and 2 panel sessions.
