Announcement for 2013 KOCSEA Moon-Jung Chung Scholarship/Poster Competition Every year KOCSEA offers a scholarship to recognize an outstanding Korean or Korean-American student studying Computer Science or related areas in the U.S. The scholarship is dedicated to commemorate the late professor, Moon-Jung Chung who was one of the KOCSEA founders and did a great service to the organization. The scholarship recipient is expected to have excelled in academics and demonstrated potential for making significant contributions in his or her discipline. This year as part of the scholarship competition, we are requiring students to submit posters showing their current research work. The submitted poster proposals (detailed instructions are shown below) will be used as one of the primary selection criteria for the scholarship consideration. Each poster proposal is expected to discuss one research topic only, and some of the outstanding posters will be presented during the poster session at this year’s KOCSEA symposium. The 2013 KOCSEA Technical Symposium is to be held at San Jose, CA from Dec 13th (Fri) through 14th (Sat). The travel expenses for the invited poster presenters will be reimbursed based on the driving/air travel distance and on the guidelines approved by the KOCSEA board and KUSCO. The scholarship recipient must present the poster during the poster session at the symposium. The application materials in the below should be emailed directly to the KOCSEA scholarship/poster competition committee members, at their emails.  Scholarship Committee Jongwook Woo (jwoo5@calstatela.edu, Chair, California State University Los Angeles) Eunjee Song (Eunjee_Song@baylor.edu, Baylor University) Wan D.
