Security for virtualized datacentres

There are just three weeks to go before the closing date for entries in the £50,000 MacRobert Award 2005 The competition, organised by the Royal Academy of Engineering, seeks to recognise groups (of up to five people) or individuals who have "exploited a major engineering breakthrough".

Last year, the £50k prize was scooped by IBM's team responsible for the company's WebSphere software. They saw off competition from Pilkinson's self-cleaning windows, 3D displays from Sharp, and a new kind of diesel injection system to win the day. More information on the runners up can be found here.

If you think your team has what it takes to make the shortlist, you can download an entry form here. Entries must reach the Royal Society before 31 January. ®
