Computer Science Showcase 2017

Undergraduate and graduate students regularly do projects through the year (many times not even in class!) that are amazing and worth showing off. If you have a project that you want to show off, this is your opportunity. Otherwise, it is your chance to come check out what our best and brightest are doing!

Showcase Details

Date: Thursday, April 13, 2017
Time: 1:30pm - 4pm
Where: Taylor Institute Studios D&E
Over 50 projects with 75+ students

What will I see?

Currently, we have a number of projects ready for the showcase, including projects from:

  • CPSC 481 (Human-Computer Interaction I)
  • CPSC 565 (Emergent Computing)
  • CPSC 583 (Information Visualization), and
  • CPSC 585 (Games Programming).
  •  CPSC 599 (Advanced iOS Programming)
  •  CPSC 607 (Biological Computation)

Who can attend?

This event is open to anyone (e.g. undergrad student, grad students, faculty and staff). You are also welcome to invite your friends and family. You do not need to pre-register.  A select number of University officials and companies may also be invited.

I'd like to participate

Sorry, we are now closed for submissions. Be on the lookout next year to demo. In the mean time, be sure to come out and check things out!

I'm a grad student (deadline: noon, Apr 1)

Grad students need to sign up by noon, Saturday April 1, 2017. Grad students need to sign up at an earlier deadline to facilitate poster printing.

What should I expect as a presenter?

You will be given a bit of booth space (i.e. a table) to showcase your project. How you use the space is completely up to you. Many people will bring along a laptop (e.g. with a screen) to show their project, allowing people to try out a demo, or to show a video.

  • You do not need to give any formal presentation.
  • You can bring along a poster (e.g. see examples), or print a set of pages to make up a poster.
  • You can expect people to be wandering in and out between projects. Some may ask you questions.
  • You do not need to stay near your booth the whole time -- you can wander to see other projects, too! (Note: security of your stuff is up to you, though!)
  • Here are some images of last year's event to get an idea of what it looked/felt like: pictures from last year, and some example projects from last year

Why should I present?

Our students (you!) do amazing work, but we rarely get to see it outside of the classroom. This is an opportunity for you to show off, meet other students (both undergrad and grad), faculty members, and potentially companies that are looking to hire smart students.

Prizes!?

There will be prizes! :D

I still have questions
