Congratulations to electrical and computer engineering professor Ladan Tahvildari, who was recently elected Chair for a second two-year term of the  IEEE Computer Society TCSE. She is the first woman, and only the second member from Canada, to chair the organization after holding numerous positions within the IEEE.

To support new and innovative research in the area of Test and Verification, Facebook invited university faculty to respond to a call for Testing and Verification research proposals. ECE's Professor Ladan Tahvildari has won a Facebook feasibility study award to enable further development of her work; her topic area is "A Markov Decision- Making Framework for All Tests are Flaky."  Tahvildari was the only Canadian researcher to receive an award in this competition round.

Mahsa Emami-Taba, an electrical and computer engineering PhD student, won the CASCON 2016 Best Student Paper Award for her work entitled A Bayesian Game Decision-Making Model for Uncertain Adversary Types.

Fourteen young faculty members at UW have received Ontario's "early researcher awards", aimed at helping them build their research teams. They will be investigating such diverse areas as better ways to rehabilitate stroke victims, design crash-free software and develop efficient drinking water treatment.

The awards will help recruit graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and research associates. The recipients will get up to $100,000 from the Ontario government and $50,000 from their university.

"The awards make it easier for the university to recruit promising young researchers for our research teams," said Alan George, UW's vice-president (university research). "Their discoveries will ensure that Ontario can compete in the marketplace of ideas." Electrical and computer engineering professor, Ladan Tahvildari, is one of those fourteen recipients.

A "computer society" -- not to be confused with the Computer Science Club -- is being revived on campus, reports engineering student Ian Tien, who says an organizational meeting was held Monday by half a dozen students.

Says Tien: "After a long period of dormancy, the University of Waterloo IEEE Computer Society student chapter is recommencing on-campus activities. Currently active IEEE Computer Society student members were invited to an organizational chapter meeting. An executive committee was selected and plans were laid out for chapter activities for the 2001-2002 year.
