The Laboratory for Analytic Sciences (LAS) at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC, is pleased to announce important dates for those interested in conducting research projects beginning in January 2023. LAS brings together multidisciplinary teams of people from government, industry and academia to address intelligence community mission challenges. We apply unclassified mission-driven examples from academic and commercial partners to intelligence community goals. Participants selected for research projects will work on campus with intelligence researchers to deliver mission-relevant solutions to better support today’s intelligence analysts.

Call for White Papers

Monday, June 6, 2022

LAS’s call for white papers invites researchers to submit one or more white papers detailing a proposed research project to be conducted in 2023. The call for white papers provides examples of research and application areas of interest for the lab. It is derived from a careful consideration of mission needs based on discussions with intelligence community partners as well as the current expertise and interests of LAS government staff.
