CREW Announces 2002 Awards
The Collaborative Research Experiences for Women in Computer Science and Engineering (CREW) program awards have been made for 2002.
A total of 46 women will be sponsored as research participants at 19 colleges and universities for the upcoming 2002-03 academic year. The projects range in scope from an exploration of weather prediction through clustered computing, to the development of an intelligent controller for an autonomous walking machine, to steganographic image processing.
All of the funded projects include a research component in the area of computer science or computer engineering. In addition, the proposals describe how the students will be able to take a collaborative approach to working on their project and also get experience in all aspects of research, from initial background research to writing up final results.
This will be the fifth year of the CREW program, which is sponsored by the CRA-W committee. Funding for this year's group is provided by USENIX and the NPACI Education, Outreach and Training program. Further information about the program, including the projects that have been funded, can be found at http://www.cra.org/Activities/craw/crew. Proposals for next year's projects will be due in early June 2003.
