C.L. and Jane Liu Award

For CS students only
This award is for a graduate student showing exceptional research promise early in their graduate studies, who has passed qualifying exams. Established by AVANT! Corporation in honor of Professors C. L. (Dave) Liu and Jane W-S. Liu. Dave Liu is recognized as one of computer science’s most prominent educators. As a researcher, he is best known for developing the rate-monotonic scheduling algorithm (1973), the theoretical basis of modern methods and tools for predicting the timing behavior of multi-programmed real-time systems. Jane Liu is a renowned researcher in real-time systems. In 1993, she developed PERTS (Prototyping Environment for Real-Time Systems), a commercially successful system of analysis, validation, and simulation.
