Data Safety Paper Honored at IT Conference
Jan. 4, 2008
A discussion of data-privacy techniques earned three School of Management researchers a nomination for top paper last month at an information technology conference in Montreal.
“Preserving Privacy When Sharing Distributed Transactional Data” was one of five papers so nominated at the 2007 Workshop on Information Technologies and Systems, held Dec. 8 and 9.
The honored researchers were UT Dallas management information systems faculty members Dr. Syam Menon and Dr. Sumit Sarkar, and Ph.D. student Jing Hoa.
Also honored at the conference was School of Management alumnus Hasan Cavusoglu, co-author of a paper that also was nominated.
Dr. Cavusoglu, who earned a Ph.D. in management science from UT Dallas in 2003, is now an assistant professor of management information systems at the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia.
