The 2003 Computational Science Olympics Winners Have Been Chosen, May 8, 2003

Bioterrorism was the main theme of the two winning entries to this year's ECCSE Computational Science Olympics.

Both groups were comprised of students from Professor Peter Salamon's Math Modeling course. One group explored a model of smallpox spread. The other developed a model of an anthrax attack on a building.
