Tuesday, October 10, 2023

On Friday, October 6, the Cheriton School of Computer Science held the 2023 Cheriton Research Symposium, an annual showcase of research excellence made possible by David R. Cheriton’s generous investment in education.

The symposium began in the morning with presentations by Cheriton Chairs Professors N. Asokan and Jimmy Lin, and by Professor Emeritus David R. Cheriton. The symposium program continued in the afternoon with a poster session in which 19 graduate students participated.

“It’s wonderful to see the range of excellent research conducted by our students,” said Khuzaima Daudjee, Professor and Director of Graduate Studies at the Cheriton School of Computer Science. “Thanks to all of the graduate students who presented their research findings, and congratulations to the winners at the symposium’s poster session.”

“I’d like to also express my gratitude to the computer science faculty members — Professors Dan Berry, Gladimir Baranoski, Justin Wan, Kimon Fountoulakis, Sihang Liu, Sujaya Maiyya and Yaoliang Yu — who gave generously of their time to judge the posters and student presentations.”
