Professors Charles Clarke, Gordon Cormack, Michael Terry and Urs Hengartner, have received $900,000 over 3 years from Google to support research in context-aware mobile social networking. The funding will support two graduate students to work with each researcher on this project in collaboration with Google.
Cheriton School of Computer Science (CS) undergraduate student, Jacqueline Mok and PhD candidate, Carol Fung, won two of five Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarships available to students enrolled at Canadian universities. "Both of these students have made outstanding contributions to the work of women in CS and the School in general," notes Professor Nancy Day, Chair of the Cheriton School's Women in CS committee.
Seven professors and one graduate student of the Cheriton School of Computer Science were recognized with outstanding achievement awards at a reception held at the Davis Centre during the afternoon of May 4th. The honourees include Ming Li, recipient of the Killam Prize, Richard Cleve, who was named a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, and Reza Dorrigiv, who was honoured for outstanding achievement in graduate studies.
