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

Undergraduates were 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.

Most of the events took place in the Shapiro Science Center (SSC) atrium, except that the panels and talks took place in the large lecture hall Gertzenzang 123 (Gzang)
and the lunch and keynote speaker presentation wered in the Faculty Club.
