New Tablet PCs from Microsoft

    We're delighted to announce that we've received a gift of 15 Tablet PCs and associated software from Microsoft Research. These will be set up in a Tablet PC lab for undergraduate education, which will be used by Andy van Dam's ReMarkable Texts project and Tom Doeppner's Electronic Student Notebook project. Staff members Loring Holden, Tim Miller, and Bob Zeleznik and undergrad Yotam Gingold are participating in the former; grad students Roberto Almanza and Qiang Ye and ugrads Albert Huang, Ulises Ortiz, Luke Peng, and Chris Wells are participating in the latter.

    The Tablets will make their debut in Doeppner's networking course (CS168) at the end of this spring semester and will appear again in his operating systems course (CS167) and van Dam's graphics course (CS123) this fall. We very much appreciate this support from Microsoft Research!
