CSEE students present their work at the annual CSEE research conference held at the end of the spring semester.


2011 UMBC CSEE Research Review

Call for Faculty Talks, Student Research Papers, and Student Posters

Friday, 6 May 2011, UMBC Technology Center, South Campus

The Event

At the end of each Spring semester the UMBC Computer Science and Electrical Engineering department holds the CSEE Annual Research Review, one-day event where faculty, research staff and students present their latest research results. This year's CSEE Research Review, CRR-11, will take place on Friday May 6, 2011 in the large conference room of the UMBC Technology Center's business incubator and accelerator building. The event will consist of a single track of presentations, posters and demonstrations from all three of the department's core programs: computer science, electrical engineering, and computer engineering.

What to Submit

Faculty Talks. We seek UMBC CSEE faculty to present their best research accomplishments from 2010-2011. There will be six faculty talks, each 20 minutes long. The talks should describe recent concrete research accomplishments, not on-going research directions, understandable to most CSEE faculty. Submit your name, lab, talk title and informative abstract in ascii (at most 250 words).

Student Research Prizes and Talks. We invite UMBC CSEE undergraduate and graduate students to have their research considered for the prizes ($100 each) of Best Undergraduate Research, Best MS Research, and Best PhD Research. Winners will present their research in 20-minute talks. Submit name, lab, title, informative abstract (in ascii), one technical report (at most 20 pages), and a letter of support from your advisor. To qualify, the work must have been carried out primarily in the 2010-2011 academic year. Prizes will be awarded primarily on the basis of scientific merit (significance, originality, nontriviality, correctness) and to a lesser extent on effective writing (clarity, proper English usage), with some preference in close cases given to students awarded degrees in 2010-2011.

Student Research Posters and Prizes. We seek UMBC CSEE undergraduate and graduate students to present their best research accomplishments from 2010-2011 in posters. Submit name, lab, poster title and informative abstract in ascii (at most 250 words) approved by your research advisor (return signed approval form to Dr. Sherman's mailbox in ITE 325). Prizes ($50 each) to best three posters, voted by professors on basis of scientific merit and effective presentation, using range voting. Up to 17 posters will be accepted (in addition to the three research prize posters).
