2008 poster workshop exhibits CSE research

The annual Department of Computer Science and Engineering poster workshop was held April 18, 2008.

The workshop gives CSE students an opportunity to display their research and receive recognition for their efforts. It also informs the CSE community about the research our students are conducting and has been a significant community-building activity for over a decade.

We received 30 excellent submissions. A list of winning posters is available below. Thank you to the following faculty, graduate students, and industry partners who served as judges:

Thank you to the 2008 Poster Workshop coordinators, Li Xiao and Alex Liu, the CSE Graduate Studies and Research Committee, CSE staff members Cathy Davison and Debbie Kruch, CSE student employee Ryan Salata, and Kevin Ohl, who served as MC for the awards ceremony.
