Three Computer Science Students Win Prestigious Award
Three Jacksonville State University computer science students, Dorothy
Brown, Rahjima Francia, and Chrissy Scott, were recently awarded a Collaborative
Research Experience for Undergraduates (CREU) research grant for their
work entitled "Visualization and Management of Digital Forensic Data."
Each student will
receive a $3000 stipend and an additional $500 for supplies. These three
women will join the ranks of previous research awardees from larger
institutions such as UC Berkeley, Harvard University, Duke University,
Carnegie Mellon University, Columbia, Georgia Tech, and Tufts University.
According to the
CREU project director, the JSU proposal was judged to be one of the
best projects submitted this year. A paper describing the project was
accepted for presentation and publication in the 2006 Information Security
Drs. Guillermo Francia,
III and Monica Trifas will serve as faculty advisors for the research
project. The award is jointly funded by the Computing Research Association
(CRA) and the National Science Foundation (NSF).
