Computer Science students presented their research at a two-day showcase event attended by local software and development companies.
The annual event included research presentations, posters and demonstrations from Postgraduate by Research students and final year undergraduates.
Representatives from Lincoln web design and development company Artsgraphica, and Software Europe attended and had various discussions with the students.
They appreciated and praised the variety and the depth of the presented work on both levels.
Certificates of Achievement were awarded to postgraduates: (Best Presentation) Keerthy Kusumam for Novel Computer Vision Techniques for Food Quality Analysis; (Best Poster) Georgios Leontidis for Diabetic retinopathy: Early screening and diagnosis from a retinal hemodynamic and geometric approach; and (Best Demo) Saddam Bekhet for Compressed Video Matching and Retrieval.
Undergraduates to receive certificates were: Jon McDonagh for his project on Deformable Models and Face Detection; Daniel Lowe for his project on Retinal Image Analysis and Peter Emo for his Indoors Navigation App.
The event is organised annually but the School of Computer Science is always open for companies and potential employers to get in touch and participate.
Computer Science postgraduate researchers took part in the annual Postgraduate Student Conference held at the University of Lincoln on Thursday, 3rd April.
This year the focus of the conference was on Methods and Methodologies, the use and applications of which unites postgraduate students across subjects and disciplines.
The aim of the conference was to provide an opportunity for students to share and critically evaluate the research methods and methodologies used to create knowledge in their subject area, and for perspectives and ideas to be challenged in a safe and secure academic environment.
The students gave some oral presentations to the conference attendees, in addition to the posters presented.
Dr Amr Ahmed, Senior Lecturer in the School of Computer Science, said: “It was nice to see increasing attendance and representation from the Lincoln School of Computer Science. Thanks to all who contributed. Hope you also enjoyed the food!”
