The 2019 CSE Student Symposium

UPDATE ON THE SYMPOSIUM

The were many very good presentations which made selecting the prize winners a difficult task.  Based on the advice of a group of faculty judges,

  • Ramsha Khan was declared the winner of the first prize, and
  • Avesta Ahmadi was declared the winner of the second prize

(the prizes are giftcards to the campus bookstore).

Congratulations to Ramsha and Avesta, and thanks to all the participants for making the Symposium a very successful event!

CSE / SHARCNET seminar in Scientific Computing

The CSE / SHARCNET seminars in Scientific Computing showcase the breadth and depth of computational research at McMaster and elsewhere. In the fall 2018 they will be taking place at 12:30pm on Wednesdays in JHE 329 and an up-to-date program of these events is available here.

CSE student among winners of a SIAM contest

CSE student John Ernsthausen won the second prize in the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) contest Math Matters, Apply It! which seeks to highlight the role of applications of mathematics in our everyday lives. John submitted a flier entitled "The math behind ... Color Outcomes" about certain mathematical and computational problems arising in color analysis. More information about this competition is available here.

Congratulations to John on his noteworthy success!!

Update on the 2017 Symposium

The were many very good presentations which made selecting the prize
winners a difficult task.  Based on the advice of a group of faculty
judges,

John Ernsthausen was declared the winner of the first prize, and
