CSE held its eighth annual CSE Graduate Student Honors Competition on December 8, 2011. The competition was the culmination of a process that narrowed the field of entrants to four finalists, each of whom gave a summary presentation on an area of their research. CSE faculty ranked the finalist's presentations.

Our congratulations to all four finalists who presented! Following are details on their presentations:

Joseph Greathouse, ACAL: "Hardware Support for On-Demand Software Analysis" (First Place). Advisor Todd Austin.

Yi Li, Theory: "Approximate Sparse Recovery: Optimizing Time and Measurements." Advisor: Martin Strauss.

Vahed Qazvinian, AI, "Using Collective Discourse to Generate Surveys of Scientific Paradigms" (Second Place). Advisor: Dragomir Radev.

Li (Eric) Qian, Software, "User-Friendly Information Integration." Advisors: Michael Cafarella and H.V. Jagadish.
