Annual UC Sautter award program now open for nominations


Applications for the 2018 Larry L. Sautter Award honoring innovation in information technology are being accepted through May 18. The award program is sponsored by the Univeristy of California IT Leadership Council.

The annual awards recognize technology projects that demonstrate the council’s priorities, including innovation, collaboration and operational efficiency, and that advance UC’s teaching, research, health care and public service missions.

The program is open to faculty and staff from all UC campuses and medical centers, the president’s office, Hastings College of the Law and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Teams or individuals who have implemented an innovative IT project at UC in the last three years are encouraged to submit an application for an award.

In 2017, award-winning projects included an application to enable the exchange of patient health data between paramedics and the hospital emergency department, a classroom recording system with a camera that tracks the instructor and captures the whiteboard, and an interactive website providing information about California’s vulnerable youth.

The Sautter Award Program presents up to three Golden Awards, two Silver Awards and five honorable mentions. Award recipients will be announced at theUC Computing Services Conference, Aug. 13–15, at UC Davis.

Details about applying for the award are provided on the Sautter Award Program website. The deadline to submit applications is 5 p.m. on May 18.

An informational/Q&A session for UC personnel interested in submitting applications will be held April 12 at noon: Join by Zoom: https://UCOP.zoom.us/j/5109870638; or call 1-408-638-0968 Meeting ID: 510-987-0638.
