CITRIS, the Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society, is proud to announce the fifth annual CITRIS White Paper competition, which will give away $30K in cash prizes for the best ideas that demonstrate the ability of IT to address a major societal challenge. The IT for Society contest is open to students from all four CITRIS campuses: UC Berkeley, UC Merced, UC Santa Cruz, and UC Davis. The deadline this year is Friday, March 19 at 5:00 p.m. PST.
CITRIS is interested in stimulating new thinking on a broad range of social benefits of information technology.
The prizes will be distributed at a poster session in late April at which the finalists will present their projects.Details are available on the CITRIS Big Ideas web page. Links to information on past winners (which have included folks from SPH!) are also on this web page.
