Fondazione Bruno Kessler

The Bruno Kessler Foundation (FBK) is a leading research center located in Trento, Italy. WebValley, started in 2001, is the FBK Summer School program for interdisciplinary scientific research. A team of enthusiastic and motivated high school students and FBK researchers accept a project challenge proposed by a scientist. This year’s project will study a new type of interface to big data and on-line spatial data analysis in 2D/3D cell environments. It is planned to extend the use of open source GIS and WebGIS solutions to micro/nano scales. The project shall enable the sharing between scientists of multi-scale studies, the overlay of cell models and real data, and user interaction based on Kinect and Android interfaces. FBKs Board of Directors will award Intel ISEF finalists full fellowships, including travel to Italy, to be part of the WebValley team from June 17- July 7, 2012.

Franklin & Marshall College

Franklin & Marshall College is a residential college dedicated to excellence in undergraduate liberal education. Its aims are to inspire in young people of high promise and diverse backgrounds a genuine and enduring love for learning, to teach them to read, write, and think critically, to instill in them the capacity for both independent and collaborative action, and to educate them to explore and understand the natural, social and cultural worlds in which they live. In so doing, the College expects students to see connections, to discover community, and to understand the centrality of service to the human endeavor.In the spirit of their founder, and in keeping with their mission of fostering educated, sustainable communities (whether defined by geography, ethnicity, culture, interest, or need), Franklin & Marshall College will present three awards to projects that employ community-based or community-engaged research or product development, the results of which will be shared with the involved community and may have an immediate positive impact on that community - particularly on an excluded or marginalized one.

K. Soumyanath Memorial Award

The K. Soumyanath Memorial Award will be awarded for the best project in Computer Engineering. The prize honors the memory of Krishnamurthy Soumyanath (1957-2010), who held the title of Intel Fellow and Chief Architect, Integrated Platform Research at Intel Labs, USA at the time of his passing. In this role, he was responsible for leading research and development activities at Intel, on circuits and architectures for next-generation transceiver devices. His team’s efforts were focused on increasing the abilities of digital processing in wired and wireless communications systems. K. Soumyanath had worked at Intel since 1996, publishing over 50 papers and having more than 30 patents issued. Born in India, he received Bachelors and Masters degrees in Electrical Engineering from prestigious Indian Universities, and a PhD in Computer Science from University of Nebraska, Lincoln. He also held an academic appointment at Tufts University, Boston, prior to beginning his distinguished career at Intel. K. Soumyanath’s interests extended beyond technology to art, music, world travel, sports and Tamil literature. He was a loving husband, father, and family man, and was an energetic and adventurous individual. He loved life and people, especially the young. He inspired and encouraged those around him to live life to the fullest, and to work hard to achieve their potential. This prize, presented by his family, honors K. Soumyanath’s achievements in Computer Engineering by recognizing young scientists who excel in this field. It aims to inspire them to strive for professional and personal fulfillment in their lives.
