  • New Program Approval Process

    We are moving away from the paper program approval forms you may have used in previous years. Instead, we will be using a fillable PDF form, available online under the "resources" link forms section, that you should fill in and e-mail to advisor@cs.umanitoba.ca. If you wish to have a face to face meeting please indicate this in your e-mail otherwise your form will simply be dealt with electronically and you will receive an e-mail once this has been done.

  • Best Paper Awards

    There are three big annual national computing conferences in Canada, on artificial intelligence, graphics/hci, and computer vision, and in recent years they have co-located together as AI/GI/CRV.  Each conference offers a best paper with a student first author, and this past week at the conference members of our department won two of these (AI and GI).  These are:

    Patrick Dubois, Volodymyr Dziubak, Andrea Bunt. Tell Me More! Soliciting Reader Contributions to Software Tutorials, Best Student Paper GI-17,

    and

    Geoff Nagy and John Anderson, Active Team Management Strategies for Multi-Robot Teams in Dangerous Environments, Best Student Paper AI-17

    Title: Smart Condo: IoT for Social Good

    The anticipated increase in the world population, people’s desire to live at home for as long as possible and the shortage of health-care professionals make the need to develop technological supports for people with chronic yet manageable conditions, to monitor and take care of their own health. The advancing wave of Internet-of-Things technologies holds immense promise to deliver such supports. In our work in the Smart-Condo project, we have been developing a sensor-based platform for non-intrusively monitoring people at home, analyzing the collected data to extract information about their activities, and generating support recommendations -- for themselves and their care-givers. We have been experimenting with a variety of living-at-home scenarios, and different sensor types and user interfaces. In this presentation, I will review the architecture of our platform, our research methodology, and our findings, and I will point out some interesting challenges for future research.

    Bio:

    Eleni Stroulia (PhD, Georgia Tech 1994) is a Professor of Computing Science at the University of Alberta. Her research focuses on (a) developing methods and tools to support software-engineering activities, and (b) designing and deploying software-based solutions for real-world applications in health care, education, and knowledge work. She has supervised more than 50 graduate students, has co-authored over 200 publications, and has served in the organization of many international software-engineering conferences. From 2010 to 2016 he held a NSERC/AITF Industrial Research Chair on Service Systems Management (w. IBM support). Over the last 6 years, in addition to leading her IRC research program, she has held leadership roles with two NCEs (GRAND and AGE-WELL), the SAVI Strategic Network, and a Strategic Project on Knowledge Mobilization and Innovation.
