CS Summer Students Show Projects, Win Awards
August 9, 2012
Berkeley Lab Computing Sciences Summer Students explained their projects to a lab audience during a well-attended poster session held in Perseverance Hall Thursday, August 2.
Judges awarded prizes for the best, most innovative, and most original posters. "The posters were all very good; it proved difficult to narrow the award selection to only three," said Osni Marques, who coordinated the summer students program for CS.
The winners were:
|Davina Smith of Las Positas College took the "Most Innovative" honor for her work helping to automate study of peptoid nanosheets, promising materials for building nano-scale systems.||You-Wei Cheah of Indiana University, Bloomington, explains his summer work on a vexing problem in computing: how to track the provenance of an increasing tide of scientific data.|
Best Poster: "Preparing Next for NAND Flash: A Very Large-scale Storage Class RRAM Memory System," Myoungsoo Jung, Pennsylvania State University (supervisor: John Shalf, CRD FTG)
Most Innovative: "Fitting Polygons to Fluorescence Microscopy Images of Peptoid Nanosheets," Davina Smith, Las Positas College (supervisors: Babak Sanii, Charles Verboom, IT, Molecular Foundry NanoBio floor)
Most Original: "CRT Building Digital Archive," Nicholas Fong, University of California Berkeley (supervisor: Elizabeth Bautista, NERSC Computer Operations and Network Support)
"We appreciated the support and participation of all involved," said Marques. Teresa Montero coordinated poster session logistics. Jonathan Carter, Jeff Broughton and David Bailey joined Marques in judging the competition.
