IBM Faculty Award
Professor Mihaela van der Schaar is selected to receive a 2008 IBM Faculty Award. She received the same award twice before in 2005 and 2007. The IBM Faculty Awards is a competitive international program to foster collaboration among researchers at leading universities worldwide and those in IBM organizations and to promote educational innovation in disciplines and locales of strategic importance to IBM. IBM does not accept unsolicited requests or proposals for Faculty Awards. Candidates must be nominated by an IBM employee with common interests who will serve as a liaison for the collaboration. Awardees may be nominated for an award renewal, and renewal nominations engage in the same competition as first-time nominations.
