Four Olin College juniors, Kristopher Belland, Paul Booth, Jared Kirschner and Seungwhan Moon, have won first place in the Undergraduate Posters category at CSCNE 2012, the 17th Annual Conference of the Northeast region of the Consortium for Computing Sciences in Colleges (CCSC).
The conference is held in cooperation with the ACM SIGCSE and Upsilon Pi Epsilon Honors Society and was hosted by Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Conn., April 27-28, 2012. CCSCNE brings together faculty, staff, and students from academic institutions throughout the Northeast for an exchange of ideas and information concerning undergraduate computing curricula.
The category in which the first place prize was awarded, undergraduate posters, includes presentations on research projects. The Olin students´ research abstract was titled Application of Genetic Programming to Verilog Hardware Design. It summarized groundbreaking research at the forefront of developing an alternative method for the design of computer architecture; in this method, computers self-organize to perform tasks efficiently, even when the ideal hardware implementation is not known to the designer.
The student team was advised by Visiting Associate Professor of Computer Science Ursula Wolz.
