DeSouza Award Nominations:
The solicitation for nominations for Unidata's DeSouza Award went out to the community in December. See: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/committees/usercom/users/DeSouzaaward/aboutRLDaward.html and
Honorees personify the Unidata ideal of a community that shares data, software, and ideas through computing and networking technologies. Send nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide a brief perspective/description of the nominee's contributions to the Unidata community. The deadline for receiving nominations is 1 February 2010. The successful nominee will be invited to make a presentation at a future Users Committee meeting in Boulder.
Unidata Users Committee Student member nominations
In addition to DeSouza Award nominations, the Users Committee is also seeking candidates for the student representative spot on the committee The position is a 2-year appointment, and nominees should be graduate students who have completed at least one year of study, use Unidata software, and hold a strong interest in the Unidata program. Nominations may be made by any community members, and self-nominations are accepted. The committee meets twice a year in Boulder and as it does for all for its voting members, the UPC covers all travel and lodging expenses for the student rep.
The deadline for nominations is fast approaching: 31 December 2009.
Anyone who's visited the Program Center, knows that its space cannot be classified as the "lap of luxury." But, you probably do not know that at times it seems downright primitive. As evidence we provide the shot (right) of our venerable colleague Dr. Ben Domenico dressed for a day in the office, not for a trip to the mall. Beret and jacket provided enough protection to allow work to proceed through much of the day, but gloves were required for a portion of it. This is true folks, it's cold here.
Now, relief is on the way. Unidata will move to swing space around March 2011 and a remodel of FL4 will begin. It is scheduled for completion around January 2012. When that day arrives, one can hope that the boxelder bug infestations and frigid temps will be a thing of the past.
