Susan, a leading computer architect and member of the National Academy of Engineering, was honored by CSE faculty and staff, former students, former Berkeley graduate school colleagues including Jim Larus, and her Berkeley Ph.D. advisor, Randy Katz. (Susan was Randy's second Ph.D. student; his first, Gaetano Borriello, is also on the UW CSE faculty.)

2011 Annual Industrial Affiliates Meeting
More than 200 affiliate members and CSE alumni and friends participated in this year's annual Industrial Affiliates research day on October 19, which was capped with an evening of posters and demos also attended by regional alums. The keynote address was presented by Joe Tucci, Chairman & CEO of EMC. In a record breaking year, 54 companies participated in CSE's recruiting fair on October 20th. To accommodate that many participating companies, 14 companies were located in the Gates Commons and 40 companies in the Atrium.

CSE rocks 2011 Grace Hopper Conference
CSE Women at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing
Founded in 1994, the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing is a series of conferences designed to bring the research and career interests of women in computing to the forefront. UW CSE has consistently been a leader in inclusion and has consistently had a strong representation of undergraduate students, graduate students, staff, and alums at the Hopper conferences. The 2011 conference was conveniently located in Portland, Oregon. Given the close proximity, CSE’s attendance broke all records!
