JaJa wins IDEA award

ISR-affiliated Professor Joseph JaJa (ECE/UMIACS) was one of four winners of the inaugural Internet2 Driving Exemplary Applications (IDEA) Awards. The awards program recognizes innovators who have created and deployed advanced network applications that enable transformational progress in research, teaching, and learning, and hold the promise to maximize the impact of next-generation networks around the world.

JaJa’s project, "Transcontinental Persistent Archives Prototype," focuses on safeguarding, preserving, and providing access to authentic electronic recordsdocumenting the rights of American citizens and the national experience. The prototype is a federation of different, independently administered computing platforms that interact as a single virtual repository. The system is distributed among the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), the University of Maryland, and the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC). JaJa’s fellow project collaborators and award recipients were Robert Chadduck of NARA and Reagan Moore of SDSC.
