I'd like to congratulate many of our faculty for their recent success in the NSF/ITR awards. Within CSE alone we had the following awards:

More than $500K category:

1) E-COMMERCE TO RECEIVE $2.7 MILLION NSF AWARD TO SUPPORT PhD PROGRAM. The University of Michigan has been awarded a five-year $2.7 million NSF grant to support a cross-disciplinary doctoral program in the social and technological aspects of E-commerce. Co-developed with an inter-disciplinary group from Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, School of Information, and the Business School, the award STIET (Socio-Technical Infrastructure for Electronic Transactions) will provide NSF funding for fellowships during the first two years of graduate study involving 65 doctoral students from these inter-disciplinary units. In addition, the grant will support STIET core courses, electives and a weekly research seminar. The UM units will work with industry partners including IBM and Microsoft in implementing the program. The primary investigator for STIET is Professor Jeff MacKie-Mason from the School of Information. Co-investigators for the program are Professor Michael Wellman from Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and Professor Michael D. Gordon from Business Administration.
