The Ethernet Alliance announced the Ethernet Alliance University Program (EAUP) 2009 White Paper Challenge, which is open to both undergraduate and graduate students of universities that are, not surprisingly, EAUP members (however, membership in the EAUP is free). The winning university and student rep will each be awarded a cash prize of $3000 US and be given the opportunity to present their white paper at next year’s Interop Las Vegas.

“The
White Paper Challenge provides a perfect forum for university students
to showcase their research investigating new ideas that can be applied
in a real-world setting,” said Dr. Ken Christensen, professor and
director of the Undergraduate Program for the Department of Computer
Science and Engineering at the University of South Florida.




White
papers must be focused on Ethernet technologies and advancement, and
must be received or postmarked by February 27, 2009 to be eligible. CLICK HERE

Challenge. If a university is not a member, students interested in
submitting their papers are encouraged to speak with their university
administration or faculty about joining the EAUP.
