Professor Slotnick arrived here from Westinghouse Corporation. Some years earlier he worked at the von Neumann Computer project at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton. He was Head of the ILLIAC IV project which, at the time (1965) was the fastest computer in the world! It had semiconductor memory and was the first outside of IBM to use circuit card design automation, ECL integrated circuits, and multilayer circuit boards on a large scale. Professor Slotnick was also a pioneer in the new concept of parallel computation. He was a Professor here in the Department of Computer Science until his death in 1985. The Daniel L. Slotnick Scholarship was established by friends and colleagues for undergraduates based on academic merit, exceptional leadership qualities, and good citizenship.
