May/June 2002
Volume Two - Issue Three

On Friday, June 14, Mike Bigrigg will conduct the ERIS 2002 Spring Seminar on Reliable Software Development. This one-day workshop will focus on software debugging and code maintenance.

Intended for senior software developers and software development managers, this all-day mini-course focuses on the problems of debugging with respect to such topics as the compilation process, memory management, and I/O interfacing. More than just a "lecture," this software development workshop is designed to help developers come together to form a common understanding of how to build reliable software.

Over the next few months, iNews will take a short hiatus while it undergoes complete redesign. To increase functionality and convenience, the revamped iNews will be better integrated with the ICES web page, which is also undergoing complete redesign. The website is being revamped to better serve our laboratories, centers, industrial partners, CIT/ICES faculty, students and the entire Carnegie Mellon academic community. Click for more...

The Philip and Marsha Dowd Engineering Seed Fund call for proposals was announced in the March/April edition of iNews. The fellowship grant program, administered through ICES, will award a grant to a CIT graduate student in the second or third year of his/her graduate studies. The objective is to provide support for a graduate student that is working on a cutting edge research project for which traditional sources of funding may not be readily available.
