Bell Labs Prize - Apply by July 15, 2014

I am writing to announce that Bell Labs <http://webform.alcatel-lucent.com/r/?id=hd01d31,27840440,27874a97> is launching a program to ‘open our doors’ to innovators in the field of information and communications networking. Specifically, we have created the Bell Labs Prize <http://webform.alcatel-lucent.com/r/?id=hd01d31,27840440,27874a98>, a competition that will give any researcher, in participating countries around the globe, the chance to introduce their ideas to the world, and collaborate with world-renowned Bell Labs researchers. The Bell Labs Prize winners will take home cash awards worth as much as $100,000, and the chance to further develop their ideas at Bell Labs, where possible.

Broadly, we are seeking 10x game-changing proposals in the field of information and communications technologies and related software systems and applications. The competition is open to anyone in one of the participating countries, who ‘owns’ an idea and meets the eligibility requirements.
Three prize winners will receive an award of $100,000 (grand prize), $50,000 (second place) or $25,000 (third place). Additionally, through the process, Bell Labs may engage with other contest participants as part of the company’s recruitment investment in top talent. The deadline to enter the contest is Tuesday, July 15, 2014. For more information, visit the Bell Labs Prize web site <http://webform.alcatel-lucent.com/r/?id=hd01d31,27840440,27874a99>.

Please share this with your most innovative students and other academic colleagues, and post the attached ‘flyer’ at your institution. We look forward to hearing their ideas that have the potential to change the way we connect, collaborate and communicate with people, places and possessions (things).

Best Regards,
Marcus Weldon
President of Bell Labs Alcatel-Lucent

Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

As per the course selection policy, enrollment caps for all CS courses have been returned to their actual class size. If the class or section is full then it means that you will need to wait for another student to drop it. You have until 11.59 p.m. on Monday May 14 to add courses.

The following courses still have waiting lists and department consent applied so you will NOT be able to add these courses.

COURSE ENROLLMENT
In Computer Science,  we drop the enrolment caps by approximately 15% of the total enrolment number for the course to give advisors room to handle special cases. We will return the enrolment caps to their actual size in the second week of classes after we have had time to deal with the special cases. This will occur on Friday, May 4, 2018, (we don't know the precise time) and remaining space will be available on a first-come-first-served basis only if the section isn't already at its enrolment total. WHAT IS A SPECIAL CASE?
