Two Google Research Awards for EC SPRIDE

Eric | March 19, 2013

Together with the group of Patrick McDaniel (Penn State) and Yves le Traon (University of Luxembourg), we have recently won a highly competitive Google Faculty Award to facilitate collaborative research on the Android infrastructure. The project “Plotting a Map of Android Inter-App Communication” is supported with 50,000 USD, but more importantly the award also gives us direct access to the related Google employees. Another award went to Prof. Michael Waidner for a collaborative project with Goethe Universität Frankfurt on “More Privacy in Online Social Networks”.

Google awards about 100 Google Faculty Awards twice a year to promote promising research projects in the field of computer science. For the current awards 600 entries have been submitted from 46 countries, 102 were successful.
