Naraphorn Haphuriwat, an undergraduate student and advisee of Professor Nilay Argon, received an honorable mention in the 2004-'05 University Book Store Academic Excellence Award Competition for a project she completed with Professor Vicki Bier. Haphuriwat studied a situation in which an attacker wishes to compromise a central computer by attacking it via some number of compromised peripheral computers. The paper identifies the optimal number of peripheral computers for the attacker to target (if any), and studies how that optimal number varies with changes in model parameters.

In the latest UW-Madison G. Steven Burrill Technology Business Plan Competition, second place and $7,000 went to FireSite, a team whose business plan centered on a system that helps firefighters find their way out of burning buildings. The FireSite team includes industrial engineering sophomore Mitch Nick, finance sophomore Brian Burke, mechanical engineering senior Chandler Nault, and chemical and biological engineering and theater sophomore Nick O'Brien. The team also recently took first prize and $10,000 in the Schoofs Prize for Creativity competition.
