UCR computer science graduate student wins ACM Student Research Competition Award

RIVERSIDE, Calif. -- (www.ucr.edu) -- Jing Li, graduate student in computer science, was one of the winners of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Student Research Competition (SRC) Grand Final this year.

The ACM Student Research Competition represents a unique forum for ACM student members at both the undergraduate and graduate level to present their original research before a panel of judges as well as before conference attendees. First round presentations take place at a series of poster competitions held at selected ACM Special Interest Group (SIG) Conferences throughout the year. Winners of the first round competitions present their research to conference attendees at a special SRC session.

Undergraduate and graduate winners from all SIG Conference SRC's are automatically entered into the SRC Grand Finals. Grand Finals judging is accomplished via the Web by a panel of evaluators. Winners of the Grand Finals are then recognized at the annual ACM Awards Banquet.

Li received the award on June 7, 2003, at the ACM Awards Banquet in San Diego, Calif. He won first place in the second round of "SIGCSE," or Special Interest Group Computer Science Education, in February, 2003. In the Grand Final, Li won third place.

The title of Li's paper was Efficient Rule-Based Haplotyping Algorithms for Pedigree Data. The paper was published earlier this year in the proceedings of the Seventh Annual International Conference on Research in Computational Molecular Biology held in Berlin, Germany, and examines the inheritance patterns in human pedigrees in order to study the genetic basis of complex diseases. Tao Jiang, professor of computer science, serves as the advisor for his research.

"It is a great honor for me to receive the award," said Li. "Because of the scope of the competition and because the competition attracted students from universities all over the world and encompassed all
