Switzerland Trip for Computer Study

July 8, 2008

Ten computer engineering and computer science students from Cal State Long Beach will travel to Switzerland as part of an American contingent participating in the Swiss Computer Science Summer Program.

Students will attend a program at the School of Business and Engineering Vaud in Yverdon-les-Bains to facilitate international collaboration and cultural exchange between American and Swiss students and faculty. The trip is from July 14-Aug. 1.

Led by Professor Alvaro Monge, the CSULB group will include: graduate students Audrey DiFiore, Meenu Gupta, Yanjun Hu and Naveen Roperia; seniors Tiffany Gee, Abel Gray, Paul Nguyen, Jun Takahashi and Mark Tokutomi; and junior Michael Neisius.

“I am interested in participating in this program because it provides me with the opportunity to broaden my world view and my knowledge of computing topics, which are both essential to survival in this fast-paced and ever-changing field,” said Nguyen, a computer science major who graduated in 2006 from Woodrow Wilson Classical High School in Long Beach.

Students from CSULB, San Jose State University and Arizona State University will join Swiss classmates in attending courses taught in English.

Topics include computer networks, ubiquitous computing, Web technologies, bioinformatics, software engineering and artificial intelligence.

The Swiss school and the local government of the Switzerland State of Vaud are funding each student with $2,000.

Prius to be cooled with solar cells

TOKYO – Toyota’s Prius gas-electric hybrid will become even greener next year with solar-powered air conditioning on some high- end models, The Nikkei reported Monday. The solar panels on the roof of the new Prius will provide 2 to 5 kilowatts of electricity, the Japanese business daily said.

Toyota has made hybrid technology the pillar of its growth strategy, promising to deliver hybrids in every model in its lineup soon after 2020.

YAHOO INC.

Microsoft signs on for Icahn bid shift

SAN FRANCISCO – Microsoft Corp. threw its weight behind investor Carl Icahn’s effort to dump Yahoo Inc.’s board, saying Monday that a successful shareholder rebellion would encourage the software maker to renew its bid to buy Yahoo’s Internet search engine or possibly the entire firm.

The move gives Icahn leverage in his campaign to replace Yahoo’s directors at the annual meeting Aug. 1.
