Monday, September 24, 2018

Each year, the Cheriton Research Symposium concludes with a poster session for Cheriton Graduate Scholarship recipients. In total, 23 students participated in the 2018 Cheriton Research Symposium poster competition.

2018 Cheriton Research Symposium poster competition

Posters were on display in the Great Hall in the Davis Centre, as graduate students explained the theory behind and the results and impacts of their research to David R. Cheriton and a panel of judges from the School of Computer Science.

We are delighted to announce the winners of the 2018 Cheriton Research Symposium poster competition.

First-place winners (tie) — $300 prize

Amine Mhedhbi and Sidhartha Sahu for “The Ubiquity of Large Graphs and Surprising Challenges of Graph Processing” (This research also received the VLDB 2018 Best Paper Award.)
