Congratulations to Matt Guthaus and DoRon Motter, Ph.D. students in EECS,
who won the ACM SIGDA CAD contest at the International Conference on
Computer-Aided Design (ICCAD). Fifteen teams of two Ph.D. students each
from UM, MIT, Berkeley, USC, CMU, UT Austin, Wisconsin and others were
given a linux box, a C compiler and some standard libraries to use in
solving a set of CAD-related problems. The competition tested CAD
knowledge and problem-solving, programming and teamwork skills.
According to word on the grapevine, Matt and DoRon were far and away the
best team. They won $1000 each. Congratulations!
