ISR-affiliated Professor and Director of the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies V.S. Subrahmanian (CS/UMIACS) has been named a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). He is being recognized "for contributions in computer science and multidisciplinary computing, for techniques to implement multiple data sources, software programs, automatically build group behavioral models and forecast group behaviors."
