(Feb. 22, 2010)--A group of UTSA public relations majors will host "Come to Your Senses: Take Part in the Census!" to raise awareness of U.S. Census 2010. Free and open to the UTSA community, the event is 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 25 in the Business Building University Room (2.06.04) on the Main Campus. There will be guest speakers, along with free food and drinks, music and drawings for prizes.

The speakers will be Ursula Pari, KSAT-TV news anchor, and Sophia Azoubel, a representative from the regional office of the U.S. Census Bureau. Both will discuss the importance of participating in the census, the easy-to-complete census questionnaire and the impact it will have on UTSA and the local community.

The event is a project organized and implemented by senior UTSA communication students as an entry in the national Bateman public relations campaign competition. This year's competition project goal is to persuade students to take part in Census 2010.

UTSA researcher is a star behind the cloud

A revolution in cloud computing is underway, and Ravi Sandhu believes it will be much bigger than the PC and Internet revolutions that have already changed the way we live. Sandhu, director of the UTSA Institute for Cyber Security, says UTSA is taking a leadership role in tackling three fundamental cloud technology problems: how to build and operate the cloud, how to use it profitably for diverse applications and how to keep it secure.

Sandhu, the Lutcher Brown Distinguished Chair in Cyber Security in the College of Sciences, and Ram Krishnan, assistant professor of electrical engineering in the UTSA College of Engineering, are funded by a $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to improve cloud security.

Did you know? Sandhu, a world-renowned cybersecurity expert, holds 30 patents, has authored more than 250 papers and been cited more than 30,000 times.
