The regional competition for high school students to participate in the North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad NACLO 2017 will take place on Thursday, January 26, 2017. The HiLT Lab in the UNT Department of Computer Science and Engineering will host the competition. At last year’s competition, Wyatt Reeves from R.L. Paschal High School in Fort Worth, participated in NACLO at UNT and scored high enough to be selected for the USA Team at the 2016 International Linguistics Olympiad in Mysore, India. See this NACLO press release.
NACLO is an educational competition in Computational Linguistics, the science of designing computer algorithms to solve linguistic problems. It challenges students to develop strategies for tackling problems in real languages and formal symbolic systems. Dr. Rodney Nielsen, Associate Professor, and Genene Murphy, CSE Staff, will supervise this event, along with HiLT PhD students Nishitha Guntakandla, Natalie Parde and Namratha Urs. A special thanks to Dr. Ian Parberry for allowing his lab to be used for the competition. More information is available at this HiLT Lab News & Events page.
The UNT Department of Computer Science and Engineering welcomes Dr. Perry Alexander, AT&T Foundation Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Science and Director of the Information and Technology Center at the University of Kansas, to be our first Distinguished Speaker of Spring 2017 on Friday, January 20, 2017 at 2:30 pm in NTDP F285.
Dr. Alexander's presentation will be on Verifying Infrastructure for Trust. His research interests include formal methods, system-level design, trusted computing, design and specification language semantics, and component retrieval. His teaching interests include formal methods, programming languages, digital systems design and software engineering.
We will host the “Secure Software Testing for Web and Mobile Applications” Research Experience for Undergraduates Site at University of North Texas this summer. Accepted students will receive:
- The opportunity to work on exciting research in the area of web testing.
- $5,000 stipend for 10 weeks.
- Some students will receive a travel stipend for moving expenses.
- The opportunity to be part of program that has a strong emphasis on collaboration with other students (you won’t sit at a computer by yourself all day/every day)
