Applications sought for 2012 UC Sautter Award in IT
The University of California is seeking applications through May 15, 2012, for the Larry L. Sautter Award for Innovation in Information Technology.
The Sautter Award recognizes innovative deployment of information technology in support of the university’s mission. Named for UC Riverside’s former associate vice chancellor for computing and communications, the award is open to faculty and staff from all UC campuses, the Office of the President and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
In 2011, the award-winning projects included:
- a framework that allows faculty, staff, researchers and administrators to share information on cell phones and other mobile devices quickly and easily;
- an electronic application system for visiting scholars and postdocs that reduces the amount of time and resources spent processing paper applications and issuing paper approval letters; and
- a web toolbox that allows departments to create and maintain websites and online applications using templates that have a campus brand.
The Sautter Award Program presents up to three Golden Awards, two Silver Awards and five honorable mentions. Award recipients will be announced at the UC Computing Services Conference at UC Berkeley, Aug. 5 to 7, 2012.
Go online for more details and application instructions. The deadline for applications is 5 p.m. on May 15, 2012.
The Sautter Award program is sponsored by the UC IT Leadership Council.
