1996 UGCSA Winners 

As part of its charter to promote excellence in CSE education, the
Undergraduate Computational Engineering and Science project sponsors
national awards programs to reward innovative contributions to the
field.  Foremost among these is the Undergraduate Computational
Science Education Awards (UGCSA) which recognizes outstanding
contributions to undergraduate CSE education by faculty.

The cycle for the 1996 competition was recently completed.  In an
extremely competitive year with many fine submissions, the judging
committee chose seven submissions as being particularly worthy of
recognition. Two more were given honorable mention.  A list of the
award winners and honorable mentions is appended below, including
name, address and institution of the winners, and the title of
their proposal. Details of their submission will appear within the
next month at

On Friday, September 20th, a presentation session will
be held for the winning entries in Washington, DC. 

The presentation session will be held at

Holiday Inn Capitol
550 C Street, SW, 
Washington, DC

from approximately 1-4:30 pm.  This session is open to the public
and interested parties are invited to attend. If you will be in
the DC area, or know of someone in the area who would be interested
in seeing these innovative contributions to CSE education, please
try to make the session.  If you plan to attend, please RSVP to
ugcsa at

The UGCSA, including profiles of the 1995 winners, and other UCES
sponsored awards programs were covered in an article which appeared
in the Winter issue of the IEEE Computational Science & Engineering

The schedule for the 1997 awards cycle has not yet been set, but
will be announced in this forum when it is determined.

Please join me in extending congratulations to all of the award
winners.  I hope to see many of you next week in Washington DC.
Please feel free to address any questions about this, or the other
UCES awards programs, to me at uces at

Yours ---- Tom
