Each year, the Cheriton Research Symposium concludes with a poster session for Cheriton Graduate Scholarship recipients. In total, 23 students participated in the 2019 Cheriton Research Symposium poster competition.
Posters were on display in the Davis Centre atrium, as graduate students explained the theory behind and the results and impacts of their research to David R. Cheriton and a panel of judges from the School of Computer Science.
We are delighted to announce the winners of the 2019 Cheriton Research Symposium poster competition.
First-place winner — $300 prize
Omar Farhat for “Watermark aware scheduler for stream processing engines” • Khuzaima Daudjee, supervisor
Second-place winners (tie) — $200 prize each
Stavros Birmpilis for “Deterministic reduction of integer nonsingular linear system solving to matrix multiplication” • George Labahn, Arne Storjohann, supervisors
Allen Wang for “Constrained polynomial optimization and application to SPNs” • Yaoliang Yu, supervisor
Third-place winners (tie) — $100 prize each
Margaret Foley for “Comparing speech recognition and keyboards for phrase composition and transcription on smartphones” • Daniel Vogel, supervisor
Daniel Gabric for “Unbordered conjugates of binary words” • Jeffrey Shallit, supervisor
Congratulations to the winners and thanks to all who participated in the poster contest!
