Cloud Computing Project Wins First-of-its-Kind Google Award
Dr. Lawrence Chung, associate professor of computer science at UT Dallas, could not predict with 100 percent certainty that his cloud computing project would be recipient of a-first-of-its-kind award from Google, but he kept his hopes high.

“Our research at UT Dallas is world-class,” he said. “We do cutting-edge research.”

Indeed, his SilverLining team of researchers and students from the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Sciencewas one of seven worldwide recipients of the first-ever Google App Engine Research Award for innovative academic
