4. Background 4.1. Arizona State University Arizona State University (ASU) is among the largest major research universities in the country with total enrollment of over 76,978 students, including over 14,723 graduate students located in the Phoenix Metro area, the 13th most populous metropolitan area in the United States. ASU strives to replicate this highly diverse population as much as possible in student demographics. ASU has multiple university campuses in the Phoenix area, with largest one being at Tempe. The university strives to be a leader in higher education under the direction of President Michael Crow. 4.2. Computer Science at ASU The Computer Science program at ASU is part of the School of Computing, Informatics and Decision Systems Engineering (CIDSE), which houses programs in Computer Science, Computer Engineering and Industrial Engineering. CS is physically and/or administratively tied with Computer Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Decision Systems, Electrical Engineering, Arts and Media Engineering, Biomedical Informatics, Learning technologies, Human Centric Computing and the Biodesign Institute. This presents a unique setting where research projects often cross disciplinary boundaries. The CS program has seen a growth in postdoc positions and there are visible trends that predict a substantial future growth.
