Candace Ghent

Congratulations to Candace Ghent, one of our SMART program students, for winning first place in the computer science category for the poster she presented at NC-LSAMP!

SMART is the Summer Multicultural Access to Research Training program, and NC-LSAMP is the North Carolina Louis Stoke Alliance for Minority Participation. Way to go, Candace!

Congratulations to CS PhD student John Giacomoni and Manish Vachharajani -- the company they founded (LineRate systems) has been sold to F5 Systems. Over the last few years, they raised $5M in capital and grew to 20 employees. F5 is an $8B networking company.

Mario Barrenechea presents at a computer science graduate student colloquium

Last semester, our graduate students launched their own Computer Science Graduate Student Colloquia. Each week a student gives a talk presenting their current research. These talks give students a friendly environment to practice their presentation skills and foster communication between the CS labs.

Swarm robots called "droplets"

CU-Boulder researchers are working to build a swarm of small robots that can work together to accomplish complex tasks. In the future, teams of intelligent robots could be deployed to tackle a number of challenging problems, from containing an oil spill to self-assembling into a piece of hardware after being launched into space.

Congratulations to Doug Smith and his team of CS students on their invitation to the ISC 2013 Cluster Competition! CU is the only US team to be invited to next year's international competition!  Doug has led our teams in every competition so far.
