As we wrap-up another academic year at CSDE, we look forward to summer projects and partnerships, which we will share more about over the next few weeks. With the summer schedule, our newsletters will arrive in your e-inbox every two weeks, but please do keep sending us your news stories, media mentions, publications, awards, events, job opportunities, and anything you would like to share with the CSDE community! You can always send your news items to csde@uw.edu.

Enjoy your summer - we hope it is all that you would like it to be. If you're in the neighborhood, please stop by Raitt 206 to say hello!
