2006 Master's final projects recognized

Winners of the 2006 Dr. James R. Chen Award for outstanding Master's final projects were announced during the School of Information commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 13, 2006. During their final semester, all Master's students in the School of Information are required to do a final project that represents the culmination of their two years in the program.

On Thursday, May 11 the school hosted a Final Project Showcase. During the showcase, all groups gave a 5 minute overview of their project. The following day, each group gave a full-length presentation in one of three tracks: Social Mobility: Organizing Collaboration, Searching and Viewing Content, and The Social Life of Information. For a complete list of this this year's projects, see Master's Final Projects: 2006.
