Computer Science Writer of the Year

April 19, 2007

On Friday I had a rather exciting email from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. For those unfamiliar with the EPSRC, it is one of the seven government-funded bodies that coordinate research and allocate grants to UK universities. Apparently, I have been awarded their Computer Science Writer of the Year prize for a piece I wrote on new developments in computing that help people suffering from dementia.

Obviously, I’m very pleased about this award but, so far, there has been no mention of a prize-giving lunch.
