Rich Dlin
Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing

In the 2018 fall term, Rich taught MATH 137 and is now teaching MATH 138. He has a lot of fun (and spends perhaps too many hours) developing GeoGebra examples to investigate and demonstrate concepts in calculus, which the students have really appreciated.

Andrew Delong, Head of Computational Research
Deep Genomics

Genomics focuses on the sequences in our genomes and how they encode for function in our cells. Predicting how sequences will be interpreted by the cell is important for identifying disease-causing mutations and for designing therapies.

Saba Alimadadi, Postdoctoral Researcher
Northeastern University

Program comprehension is crucial in software engineering, a necessary step for performing many tasks. However, the implicit and intricate relations between program entities hinder comprehension of program behaviour and can easily lead to bugs. It is particularly challenging to understand and debug modern programming languages such as JavaScript, due to their dynamic, asynchronous, and event-driven nature.

Saturday, February 9, 2019 — 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM EST
Waterloo-local ACM-style programming contest

The next Waterloo-local ICPC-style programming contest will be held on Saturday, February 9, 2019 in MC 3003. All members of the UW community are invited to try their programming skill in Scheme, C, C++, Java, Pascal, Python, or Scala.
