The Future of Computing 2008

Student Project Competition of the

Computer and Information Sciences Department


Time: March 29, 2008, 10 AM to 1 PM

Location: First Floor of Tuttleman Hall, Temple University Main Campus



The 2008 Student Project Competition of the CIS Dept. is designed to recognize the best graduate and the best undergraduate student projects (three awards in each category). The projects may be course projects, research projects, or any CIS projects performed by a CIS student or a group of CIS students during the Fall 2007 or Spring 2008 semesters.

The Award Committee, composed of CIS students, faculty, and corporate sponsors, will select the awardees. The selection criteria will be based on:


  • Most Innovative use of technology
  • Most Useful to the proposed community of users
  • Best Project Presentation


The projects will be presented as posters combined with live software demonstrations. There is also an opportunity to select a mentor from the faculty who will offer guidance and assistance.


We expect a large number of visitors from the CIS department, Temple University, local industry, and high schools.


The awards for the best undergraduate projects are $2,000, $1,000, and $500.

The awards for the best graduate projects are $2,000, $1,000, and $500.

Special awards of $500 for the "Most Popular" project and for the "Most Socially Relevant" project.  (These awards will be based on the votes of all CIS students and faculty)

All registered participants will receive a free one year ACM membership.


All presenters must register by March 1, 2008.
