Two Students Win Awards in Regional Computer Science Poster Contest
October 3, 2006October 3, 2006, Greencastle, Ind. - Two DePauw University students won awards in a poster contest for computer science student research work sponsored by the Consortium for Computing Sciences in Colleges (CCSC:MW). The competition took place September 29-30 at the CCSC:MW's fall conference, which was held at DePauw University's Percy L. Julian Science and Mathematics Center.
Nine student posters were presented at the conference. The third place award was awarded for the poster "Genetic Relevance," by Cody Baker (Hiram College) and Christine Lewellen (DePauw). "Migraine Detection through Analysis of EEG Signals," by Frank Fearington (DePauw) and Stan Park (Truman State), won second place. The first place winner was "A Novel Compression Algorithm for Statistical Data," by Drew Colthrop (Grand Valley State).
The Consortium for Computing Sciences in Colleges is a non-profit organization that promotes quality computer-oriented curricula, and the effective use of computing, in smaller institutions of higher learning which are typically non-research in orientation. The Midwest region includes Eastern Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Western Pennsylvania, and Northern Kentucky.Back
