  • Institute Industrial IT;
  • Johns Hopkins University;
  • Pennsylvania State University;
  • Syracuse University;
  • Universiti Malaysia Perlis; and
  • University of Southern California.
In other EAUP news, the organization has extended the deadline for its first-annual White Paper Challenge Program. The White Paper Challenge Program is open to graduate and undergraduate students to "to present academic theories that promote the advancement of Ethernet technologies and apply those theories in a real-world setting." The winner will receive a cash prize and will be offered a chance to present at Interop Las Vegas in Aril. The new deadline for submissions is Feb. 28, and the program is open to all EAUP member institutions. (Membership in EAUP is free.)
