The ACM Student Research Competition held at the 2015 SIGCSE conference consisted of two categories of competition, graduate and undergraduate, with prizes awarded based on judging during the conference. Research from all areas of computer science qualified. Judges included professional computer scientists attending the conference activities. Students’ research was evaluated on the quality and significance of the work, and the quality and clarity of both an oral and visual presentation. The top three winners in the undergraduate and graduate categories as determined by the judges’ evaluation of the conference presentations received prizes of $500, $300, and $200, respectively.

The Villanova Cave Automatic Virtual Environment (CAVE) was featured WHYY’s The Pulse. Professor Frank Klassner and Freshman Computer Science major Charles Walberg were both interviewed by WHYY's The Pulse to explore the CAVE's potential as a classroom facility. Villanova's CAVE comes courtesy of a $1.67 million National Science Foundation grant, which covers the cost of the unit, along with a $15,000 hi-resolution camera that can be used to create original content. During the interview Professor Klassner displayed a virtual model of a newly renovated lounge and study area on campus. Charles Walberg responded to his experience in the CAVE by stating, "I'm really blown away by a) how similar it looks to the room I've actually been in before, and then b) I guess, just how real it looks, how lifelike everything is."

Senior Projects 2014 Mojo Rank

MojoRank is an (anti)social network for college students - in particular Villanova - that facilitates positive freedom of expression. We allow users to post as themselves or postanonymously, and we encourage people to post photos, text, or other pieces of content relevant to them. The purpose of this site is twofold: 1. To give college students an incredible social networking platform, specifically for people who only go to their college/university, and 2. To provide a friendly outlet for people to express themselves and their views. People are far less likely to say what they actually think on social networks, and it would be great to have a platform which doesn't trap users into varying forms of technological groupthink.
