Fordham Holds Eighth Annual Computing & Information Science Day

Fordham University's Eighth Annual Computing and Information Science day has included a flurry of open houses and activity at both the Lincoln Center and Rose Hill campuses.

The day began at Rose Hill with a Robotics and Computer Vision lab open house hosted by Dr. Damian Lyons and his students, who gave demonstrations on the robots (see picture) they are preparing for use in the 17th Annual Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition, which takes place in June at Oakland University in Rochester, Mich. Later, Dr. Shinsuke Shimojo discussed how the length of gaze affects human preferences at an interdisciplinary faculty seminar in Bioinformatics hosted by the Department of Computer & Information Science and Fordham College at Rose Hill.

In the afternoon, an alumni presentation and career forum took place at Lincoln Center, where the festivities continue as participants will celebrate the Department's "quarter century of excellence in computing and information science education and research" at a dinner and reception tonight.
