School of Computer Science Student Showcase 2018

The School of Computer Science, University of Lincoln, UK, are holding their annual Student Showcase event on Tuesday 15th May 2018.

The showcase will take place from 9:30am – 4:30pm in the ground floor atrium of the Isaac Newton Building and students and colleagues from across the University are invited to attend throughout the course of the day.

Also in attendance will be approximately forty visitors from commercial companies and the public sector, which will provide delegates with a networking opportunity.

This event does not form part of any student assessment and all student exhibitors will be attending because they have created a project that they are justifiably proud of – and they want to show it to the widest possible audience.

This year, there will be over thirty exhibits from first, second, third and fourth year undergraduates, as well as exhibits from our MSc students.  Some of our second year Group Project module students have also been working with final year Product Design students from the College of Arts to help make their designs into reality.  This is the second year in a row that this interdisciplinary collaboration has taken place and BA Product Design students will also be at the Showcase supporting the group that they have worked with.

To mention the themes of just a few of the student exhibits, these will include:

  • Stem cell tracking and segmentation.
  • Using medical imaging for enhanced probability of cancer detection.
  • Patient zero – a zombie game produced by a group of first year undergraduates during a 48 hour Game Jam.
  • An investigation into the viability of an automated news-driven algorithmic share trading system.
  • RaptorProtector – using social media to raise awareness of wildlife crime density in the vicinity of driven grouse moors.  A number of students have been mentored on this subject by TV wildlife expert Chris Packham during their final year project.  Officers from the Lincolnshire Police Wildlife Crimes Unit are among the confirmed guests attending the event.
