Introducing The Guelph Coding Community

Tomorrow marks the first ever Guelph Coding Community (GCC) event. Organized by School of Computer Science undergraduate students Corey Alexander, Danielle Fudger, Jon Snowdon, Lee-Jay Cluskey-Belanger, and Ryan Wilson-Perkin, the group was created to explore computer science topics not typically offered during regular class time.

A Great Start

The past week has been a busy and exciting one; new student move-in, orientation week, first classes, new faces, new friends, BBQs and world records. On Thursday, the School of Computer Science hosted the Society for Computing and Information Science (SOCIS) Annual Fall BBQ. The event saw hundreds of new computer science students celebrating the start of a new year with current undergraduate and graduate students, staff, and faculty.

Happy Move-In Day

The School of Computer Science would like to welcome all new students who are moving in today (and of course say hello again to all of our returning students).

Welcome to the University of Guelph. Welcome to the SoCS. We hope that the next few years will be filled with laughter, smiles, and great success.

Orientation Week Activities With SoCS

Orientation Week 2013 is fast approaching and there are many things for students, staff, and faculty to do. Not sure where to begin? How about joining us at the School of Computer Science's SOCIS (Society for Computing and Information Science) Annual Fall BBQ. The event, scheduled for Thursday September 5 at 5pm, takes place just outside the Reynold's building. Sit and have some free food with new friends, including the current undergraduate and graduate students, and our staff and faculty.

CPES Undergraduate Poster Session

Last Wednesday the College of Physical and Engineering Sciences hosted the CPES Undergraduate Poster Session. Designed to showcase undergraduate research projects, the event drew a large number of contributors from all of the units within CPES. Seven undergraduate students from the School of Computer Science presented four posters covering a range of topics.

Guest Lecture: Neural Network ReNNaissance & Formal Theory of Fun

Juergen Schmidhuber from the IDSIA, Switzerland will be visiting the University of Guelph on Friday, August 9 2013 in the Thornbrough Atrium at 10am.

He is a vibrant speaker and one of the pioneers in artificial neural network research and he runs a very high-profile lab. He will discuss his group's progress on a number of challenging practical problems, but he will also talk about his mathematical theory of fun which explains art, science, music, and humour!
