In what the department plans to make an annual tradition, ECE held its first graduate student poster symposium on April 21.
The symposium gave students an opportunity showcase their research and share ideas in an open, interactive forum with faculty, students and staff.
The event featured 44 master's and doctoral students, and the fifth floor filled quickly with interested attendees.
Top presentations included:
- Best Poster: "Superpixels" by Sree Ramya S.P. Malladi (pictured), Sundaresh Ram and adviser Jeffrey J. Rodriguez
- Best Poster Design, for creative expression of a topic: "Proof of Reliability in Cloud Storage," by Li Li and adviser Loukas Lazos
"I really enjoyed learning from the students about their research," said Kelly Potter, UA professor of electrical and computer engineering and optical sciences. "Two of my students presented posters at the symposium, and they both reported that they really enjoyed the event both for the opportunity to interact with their peers and learn about research being conducted across the department, and because of the one-to-one interactions with faculty."
