DUE TO EVENTS IN BOSTON: NEUCS13 has been cancelled.

We tried, but were not able, to reschedule for the Spring and so we are planning for next year's symposium. Please do submit the same abstract for next year's NEUCS unless you happen to have something newer!

Please join the facebook group (above) and/or the linkedin group (also above) to stay informed.

The NEUCS organizing committee invites all undergraduates in computing sciences at universities, colleges, and community colleges in New England to participate in the fifth New England Undergraduate Computing Symposium,  organized annually to celebrate Excellence and Diversity in Undergraduate Computing.       

Undergraduates are invited to share exciting projects they've been working on over the past year. These projects can be creative homework assignments from classes, independent research projects, senior honors thesis projects, software built for fun, or any other computing project including such areas as biology, physics, social networks.  Students can share their  projects during the poster sessions by presenting posters or demos on laptops. Several student talks were selected for
 10-minute presentations from submitted abstracts. 


The Symposium will be at the Photonics Lab on the Boston University Campus with easy access to the MBTA.

Prizes and Honors

This year we are soliciting posters and/or demos in the following categories and there will be a prize for the best demo/poster in each category.
  • Entrepreneurship - a poster or demo of a potential software product that you are developing
  • Game Design - a poster or demo of a computer or video game you are developing
  • Class Project - a poster or demo of a project completed for a class
  • Research - a poster or demo of a research project
  • General - a poster or demo of a project that doesn't fit one of the above categories

The posters and demos will be judged by graduate students and a small award and a certificate will be presented to the winners. Links to the winning projects will be posted on this page

Registration and Submissions are closed.

The form asks for information about you and your collaborators and also asks for a short (1-2 paragraph) description of your project. 

If you do not have a demo or poster to present, then you can still attend, but you'll need to return to this site and register as a general participant in early April. 

Social Networking

We now have a facebook group for NEUCS with photos and comments about previous NEUCS events.
