Van Jacobson and Steven McCanne of the Information and Computing Science Division have won R&D Magazine's 1995 R&D 100 Award for development of a software toolpack that enables multiparty audio and visual conferencing via the MBone (Multicast Backbone).
The MBone is a subset of the Internet that is capable of multicasting. That is, instead of "unicasting" one packet to one destination, the network copies each packet of information from the source for delivery to each destination that has requested it.
Unlike traditional broadcast methods, the MBone is totally interactive. The software toolpack created by Jacobson and McCanne, which includes a "white board," session directory, video conferencing, and video-audio tool software, enables real-time audio-video conferencing over the Internet. It lets participants share text, images and sketches.
MBone's audio-visual conferencing capabilities were developed to provide scientists with an easy way of sharing information over long distances in a manner similar to their normal interactions--and in their normal workplace. It was also developed to prove the potential of this kind of interaction on a scale provided by the Internet and to help set the standards that would guide its development.
Multicasting gained international attention and made rock-and-roll history when it was used to carry 20 minutes of the Rolling Stones' "Voodoo Lounge" concert tour. The concert was carried to some 200 workstations around the world that were connected to the Internet.
Another example of its potential was seen at a surgeons' conference at the University College in London. Approximately 100 doctors in London and Sweden watched as a surgeon in San Francisco performed a complex liver operation. As he worked, viewers asked questions about the procedure.
No other communications tool can reach as many people for interactive communication. Relatively short-term advances in hardware and software design will bring MBone communications to millions.
Considered a major indicator of successful technology transfer by Energy Secretary Hazel O'Leary, the R&D 100 Awards program is the only competition in the world that recognizes the 100 most technologically significant new products in the past year. The international competition has a twofold purpose: to recognize innovators and organizations for outstanding practical technical developments, and to identify significant technological advances. R&D Magazine has honored inventors and scientists around the world with the awards since 1963.
LBNL's entries are coordinated through the Technology Transfer Department.

Speakers included LBNL Deputy Director Pier Oddone, UC Berkeley Chancellor Chang-Lin Tien, and researchers Andrew Sessler, Clyde Wiegand, Swapan Chattopadhyay, and Angelina Galtieri. A group of Chamberlain's former graduate students presented him with a plaque in thanks.
"The 20th century has few rewards to offer a person that can top this sort of recognition by one's colleagues," Chamberlain said after the symposium. "I truly feel honored."
Chamberlain, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease a decade ago, also took a moment to thank his friend Senta Pugh, who has been his aide for the past two years. "She has kept me intellectually and physically active," he said. Pugh is the widow of former Lab physicist Howel Pugh.
In experiments at the Bevatron the mid-1950s, Chamberlain, Emilio Segré, Clyde Wiegand, Tom Ypsalantis, and Herbert Steiner conducted a successful search for the anti-proton, an elusive mirror image of the ordinary proton found in the nucleus of atoms. Chamberlain and Segré shared the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1959 for the work.
Chamberlain went on to study the relationship between spin directions and nuclear forces. He played a leading role in the development of polarized targets. In a series of experiments, he and co-workers scattered beams scattered beams of particles off these targets so that the protons were spinning predominantly in a single direction.
Chamberlain has also been an outspoken activist on issues related to peace and social justice. He was a prominent member of Scientists for Sakharov, Orlov, and Shcharansky, an international effort to free three leading Soviet dissidents. He was one of the founders of the national nuclear freeze movement in the 1980s, and worked tirelessly for arms control.
"Owen persisted with a strong faith in human improvement," said Oddone, reading a letter from Lab Director Charles Shank, who was unable to attend the birthday celebration. "We should all rejoice today that it was Owen all along who was right. We celebrate Owen's birthday when the danger from nuclear destruction is remote and when there are no longer dissidents in Soviet prisons."
Chattopadhyay will discuss particle and laser beams as directed and focused flows of energy and information. With examples from advanced accelerator and laser facilities throughout the world, he will describe how beams are used to study new energy sources, the fundamental structure of matter, and fundamental material processes and structures.
The director of the Center for Beam Physics in the Accelerator and Fusion Research Division, Chattopadhyay's research interests range from high energy and nuclear physics to synchrotron radiation sciences, and more recently, biosciences. He contributed to the conception, design and construction of the Advanced Light Source, and is now engaged in research on laser-acceleration of particles and on generation of femtosecond x-ray bursts for studies of ultrafast phenomena.

UC President Jack W. Peltason also named Lab Director Charles Shank to a committee of UC faculty and administrators that will advise him on the selection of a new provost. The search committee, which will review nominees and applicants, will be chaired by UC Santa Cruz Chancellor Karl S. Pister, former dean of the School of Engineering at UC Berkeley.
Peltason is initiating the search for the new provost, although the final recommendation to the Board of Regents will be made by the new UC president after Peltason retires Oct. 1.
"While we will miss the wise leadership and counsel of Walter Massey, we have confidence in Jud King's ability to fulfill the duties of the office of provost and senior vice president during the transition period," Peltason said.
Prior to becoming vice provost for research, King was provost of professional schools and colleges at UC Berkeley and is a professor of chemical engineering there.
The provost and senior vice president is responsible for academic planning, budget, liaison with the systemwide Academic Senate and student governments, admissions and outreach, library planning, affirmative action, student affairs, liaison with other segments of education in California, UC Extension and summer sessions, and the University Press. The provost and senior vice president also is responsible for programmatic oversight of the three Department of Energy laboratories managed by the University.

"I believe our efforts to dismantle barriers that have long kept some of our citizens from a college education are squarely in the American egalitarian tradition," Peltason said in his statement, which is intended for the July Regents meeting, but was released to the press on July 10. "I continue to believe that the vital diversity of California, reflected increasingly in our classrooms and laboratories, is one of the most powerful opportunities for learning we offer our students... I also remain convinced that, unless we continue to take race, ethnicity, and in some circumstances, gender, into account among many factors in choosing among eligible students, the University will find it very difficult indeed to enroll a diverse student body in some of our programs."
Joining Peltason in issuing the statement were UC's nine chancellors and systemwide vice presidents, and the systemwide Academic Council, which represents UC faculty.
"On the question of whether the University should continue its efforts to reflect the diversity of California throughout our community, my position is clear, as is that of the entire academic and administrative leadership of the University," Peltason wrote in an accompanying letter to the Regents. "We are a public institution in the most demographically diverse state in the Union. Our affirmative action and other diversity programs, more than any other single factor, have helped us prepare California for its future."
Connerly, an outspoken critic of affirmative action, has formally proposed the elimination of "race, religion, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin" as supplemental admissions criteria, and as categories for "admissions by exceptions." Instead, he has proposed outreach programs for economically or socially disadvantaged students.
Organized by members of the African American Employees Association, the picnic was held to thank all the students for their contributions to the Lab, and to welcome all those who recently arrived here for the summer. Director Charles Shank also attended, expressing his own thanks and support for their work.
The Lab-sponsored event was made possible through contributions from the Employee Activities Association, the Office of Work Force Diversity, and a number of employees who volunteered their time and cooking skills.
CAPTION -- Volunteers Darren Moore, Bette Muhammad, and Tony Greenhouse kept the burgers and hot dogs in steady supply.
CAPTION -- Engineering's Don Krieger (on drums) and his Jazz Trio provided lively entertainment for the occasion.
The UCRS Board serves in an advisory capacity to the President of the University on matters concerning the UCRS plans.
These plans--the UC Retirement Plan (UCRP), the Defined Contribution Plan, and the Tax-Deferred 403(b) Plan--hold assets of more than $19 billion and represent retirement interests of more than 157,000 UCRS members.
The UCRS Board generally meets quarterly at UC's Office of the President in Oakland. Members serve without compensation, but are reimbursed for necessary travel expenses.
The current UCRS Board includes: V. Wayne Kennedy (chair), Office of the President; Julia Armstrong, UC Santa Cruz; Richard W. Drake, UC San Francisco; Cheryl F. Hagen, UC Riverside; Patricia A. Small, UC Regent Duncan A. Mellichamp, UC Santa Barbara; Steve Sugarman, UC Berkeley; Robert H. Drake, Los Alamos National Lab; Patricia E. Erickson, Lawrence Livermore National Lab.
The next non-Academic Senate UCRS Board member election will take place in June 1996.
The hottest lane on the Information Superhighway is the World Wide Web and one of the hottest spots on the Web is Glenn Davis' "Cool Site of the Day." Thousands rely on Davis' home page to point them to new and interesting information on the Web.
On June 21, Davis chose LBNL's "1990 U.S. Census LOOKUP" service as his Cool Site.
Deane Merrill of the Information and Computing Sciences Division (ICSD), who leads the team that put LOOKUP online, said his group had no advance notice of its day of fame. That morning, the group's Mark Durst and Mike Helm discovered that their computer had almost ground to a halt due to a tremendous surge in usage. Further investigation revealed the cause.
On an ordinary day, about 700 LOOKUP-related files are accessed on the LOOKUP server cedr.lbl.gov. By the end of the day on June 21, more than 18,000 LOOKUP-related files had been accessed on this server.
The number could have been even higher. However, at noon LBNL asked Davis to route some of the Cool Site traffic to two other LOOKUP servers, including one at the Bureau of the Census. The Lab's computers were completely swamped.
This was the first time a Web service at LBNL has been chosen as a "Cool Site." LOOKUP joins a select group of other designated sites that, in June, included LIFE, the World Wide Web Dating Game, Geek Chic, and Mud Connector.
LOOKUP, written by ICSD's Nathan Parker, is a Web-based interactive retrieval system for 1990 U.S. Census data. Since its creation in August 1994, it has been accessed by 43,000 users.
LOOKUP is part of ICSD's Comprehensive Epidemiologic Data Resource (CEDR) and Populations at Risk to Environmental Pollution (PAREP) projects. The underlying database is a collaborative project of LBNL, UC Berkeley, and the Bureau of the Census. With 300 CDs (150 gigabytes) online, it is the largest collection of U.S. Census and other geopolitical data on the Internet. Recently, the Census Bureau incorporated LOOKUP into the Web-based U.S. Gazetteer, which provides maps and detailed Census data for any part of the United States.
LOOKUP can be found on the World Wide Web at the address of http://cedr.lbl.gov/cdrom/doc/lookup_doc.html

The "B" designation was started before the availability of computers as a way to simplify Plant Engineering record keeping. With the advent of computer databases, the convention has become obsolete. The change is part of an ongoing initiative to establish a standard format for building and room designation.
As a result of the change, four smaller support structures are being renumbered to avoid duplicate building numbers caused by the elimination of the "B" prefix: B51B (former Bevatron Biomedical Facility) will become 51Q; B55A (office trailer) will become 55C; B70A (liquid tank storage) will be 70G; and B71B (office trailer) will be designated as 71P. All other buildings will retain their current designation with the exception of the "B" prefix; e.g., B90B will become simply 90B.
The Fire Department, mailroom, campus police, building managers, and database managers have been notified, and new signage will be posted. For more information, contact Ellen Kim at X6632.
