A competition among graduate students conducted in the month of February based on written research papers and oral presentations. A faculty committee will select the winner to be announced during CS day. For the third year, the competition is sponsored by Compunetix.
There will be two poster competitions, one for graduate students and the other for undergraduate students. In addition to the winners selected by a faculty committee, there will be a number of ?people choice? prizes given to the winners.
A forum to discuss internship, co-op and capstone experiences from the point of view of students and their industry mentors.
The Industry Advisor Board will present an award to the most innovative student in the capstone experience course, as judged by the course instructor and the industry mentors.
Demonstrations of projects by both computer science undergraduate and graduate students will be available. Participants will have the opportunity to contact the developers of the demos for information regarding details of the projects.
