Within a short few months since our inaugural newsletter, several research grants have been awarded to CESCA members. The hard work of all CESCA members has laid the foundation for these new projects. Many of the projects are interdisciplinary in nature, combining expertise of various faculty members and talents of research students. These range from merging FPGAs with network simulation to sub-threshold circuits and physically unclonable functions. These exciting, new endeavors not only push the research envelope, but also serve as tremendous educational opportunities to students involved. This issue of the newsletter describes the new projects, as well as many other activities engaged by CESCA members. These include not only conference travel, but the summer often provides great opportunities for internships. We had more than a dozen students taking on summer internships this year! We also celebrate those students who have reached a milestone in their academic career and successfully defended their dissertations and/or theses. They continue to serve as ambassadors for CESCA, applying the knowledge acquired during their years here.
