Congratulations to Doug Burger and Steve Keckler! Both were recently awarded an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship. The grant will support their work in building a Tera-op microprocessor. Visit the TRIPS web page at http://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/cart/trips/ for more information.
"Sloan Research Fellowships are, by far, the oldest program of the Sloan Foundation, although those who receive the grants are among the youngest scholars the Foundation assists. The Fellowship program has grown in size and cost over the years and now includes several disciplines not covered in the beginning; but its purpose - to stimulate fundamental research by young scholars of outstanding promise - remains the same."
