2023 AMPS PI Workshop


The fifth NSF AMPS PI’s workshop will be held in a hybrid in-person/virtual mode on October 12, 2023 at George Mason University (Merten Hall, next to the Rappahannock Parking Deck). It is expected that each AMPS team will make a presentation/poster on their current progress of the project and the future research directions. To foster synergism between the different projects, we ask that the presentations be accessible to members of other AMPS teams. PIs are encouraged to bring their graduate students and postdocs affiliated with their AMPS projects. Limited travel support is available for students and postdocs affiliated with AMPS projects, particularly for underrepresented groups in STEM. Participation is by invitation only.

The Division of Mathematical Sciences (DMS) at the National Science Foundation (NSF) recently formed a partnership with the Office of Electricity (OE) at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to support fundamental mathematical and statistical research that aim to develop novel methodologies and algorithms for improvement of the security, reliability, and efficiency of the modern power systems. The program, named the Algorithms for Modern Power Systems (AMPS), intends to catalyze a broad range of interdisciplinary research initiatives at the forefront of power system engineering, mathematics, and statistics.

The primary objective of the upcoming NSF AMPS PI workshop is to bring together principal investigators involved in the AMPS program and stakeholders from DOE and other government agencies, to report on the progress of the research projects, and to facilitate creation, transfer and application of knowledge on modern power grids.

This year’s workshop will be held jointly with the Algorithms for Threat Detection (ATD) PI workshop, which runs Oct. 10-11. Registration, Abstract Submission, and Application for Travel Support will be centrally located online for both workshops.

Important Dates:

  • September 15- Deadline for application travel support
  • September 15 – Abstract submission deadline
  • September 22- Notification of travel support decision
  • September 29 – Late registration fee starts
  • October 02 – Program published online

The workshop will be held in George Mason’s Merten Hall, Room 1201 or 1202.  Coffee and snacks are provided during breaks, but lunch is not included in the registration. The GMU campus has several restaurants within walking distance from Merten Hall.


There is no official conference hotel for this workshop. However, there are several hotels within a five-mile radius from George Mason.
