Brown undergraduates Meredith Ringel and Andrew Schwerin have received honorable mention in the Computing Research Association's Outstanding Undergraduate competition. They are two out of only 27 undergraduates nationwide so honored. Heartiest congratulations, Merrie and Andrew!
In announcing the awards, CRA's Selection Committee said:
"This year's nominees were a very impressive group. A number of them were commended for making significant contributions to more than one research project, several were authors or coauthors on multiple papers, others had made presentations at prestigious conferences, some had produced software artifacts that were in widespread use, and a few had work that resulted in patent applications. Many of our nominees had been involved in successful summer research or internship programs, several had won national and international competitions, many had been teaching assistants, tutors, or mentors, and a number had significant involvement in community volunteer efforts. It is quite an honor to be selected for honorable mention from this group."
