The Big Data Interagency Working Group (BD IWG) works to facilitate and further the goals of the White House Big Data R&D Initiative.
The CPS IWG is to coordinate programs, budgets, and policy recommendations for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) research and development (R&D).
Cyber Security and Information Assurance (CSIA) Interagency Working Group coordinates the activities of the CSIA Program Component Area.
The Health Information Technology Research and Development Interagency Working Group coordinates programs, budgets and policy recommendations for Health IT R&D.
HCI&IM focuses on information interaction, integration, and management research to develop and measure the performance of new technologies.
HCSS R&D supports development of scientific foundations and enabling software and hardware technologies for the engineering, verification and validation, assurance, and certification of complex, networked, distributed computing systems and cyber-physical systems (CPS).
The HEC IWG coordinates the activities of the High End Computing (HEC) Infrastructure and Applications (I&A) and HEC Research and Development (R&D) Program Component Areas (PCAs).
LSN members coordinate Federal agency networking R&D in leading-edge networking technologies, services, and enhanced performance.
The purpose of the SPSQ IWG is to coordinate the R&D efforts across agencies that transform the frontiers of software science and engineering and to identify R&D areas in need of development that span the science and the technology of software creation and sustainment.
Formed to ensure and maximize successful coordination and collaboration across the Federal government in the important and growing area of video and image analytics
The Wireless Spectrum R&D (WSRD) Interagency Working Group (IWG) has been formed to coordinate spectrum-related research and development activities across the Federal government.

Dr. Laura Biven
Senior Science and Technology Advisor
Office of the Deputy Director for Science Programs (SC-2)
U.S. Department of Energy
(presented at FASTER CoP on July 18, 2016)
Laura Biven joined the Office of the Deputy Director for Science Programs as Science and Technology Advisor in September 2008. Her responsibilities include advising the Deputy Director on science program management and policy issues, and providing coordination and analysis of budget, scientific, technical, programmatic, and operational issues regarding the SC Program Offices and national laboratories. Laura also currently serves as a primary liaison to the Offices of Advanced Scientific Computing Research and High Energy Physics. From 2005 to 2008 she was AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow, serving first as Commodity Import Analyst at the US Department of Agriculture and then as Science and Technology Analyst at the US Department of State. She has also served as member of the mathematics faculty at Bard High School Early College in New York City; postdoctoral fellow at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Complex Physics in Dresden, Germany; and visiting scientist to the Abdus Salam International Center for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy. She received a first class M.Sc. degree in Mathematics and Physics from the University of Bristol and a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from the University of Warwick, both in the UK. Laura’s scientific research interests focused on the study of wave turbulence while her science policy interests have included areas of invasion biology, risk analysis and climate change. Laura has received a number of awards for teaching and the public dissemination of science including three AAAS/Subaru Lesson Writing contests and first prize in an essay competition organized by the International Congress on Mathematical Physics 2000 for the essay: “Weak-Wave Turbulence: A Tragic Super-hero of Turbulence Theory.
The Department of Energy has begun to require Data Management Plans as part of research proposals as a way of encouraging community-driven data sharing and preservation practices. This presentation will discuss some of the details of these requirements, the history behind them, and some thoughts for future work in the area of data management.
