  • At 4 a.m. on May 1, 1964, in the basement of College Hall, Professor John Kemeny and a student programmer simultaneously typed RUN on neighboring terminals. When they both got back correct answers to their simple programs, time-sharing and BASIC were born. Those innovations made computing accessible to all Dartmouth students and faculty, and soon after, to people across the nation and the world.

    See the story of BASIC below, or check out the full story at the...

  • In the 2019 TechWomen|TechGirls annual awards luncheon, Prof. Zhou discussed her journey, which transcends student, teacher and professional, from studying computer science in China, to pursuing a PhD and starting a faculty career in the United States. She also discussed her current research in mobile computing, as well as her experience and the lessons she has learned navigating a male-dominated field. The annual...

  • Associate Professor of Computer Science Xia Zhou is a rock star, and now she has an award to prove it. 

    The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the largest educational and scientific computing society in the world, has awarded Zhou the ACM SIGMOBILE's RockStar Award. SIGMOBILE is the ACM’s organizational division “dedicated to all things mobile.”

    The ACM SIGMOBILE's RockStar award committee selected Zhou “in recognition of...

  • Dartmouth News has a story about how Dartmouth faculty, including our very own Alberto Quattrini Li, are reaching out to schoolchildren in the community as a way of sharing their knowledge, enthusiasm, and excitement about STEM fields. From the story:

    For the past four years, Dan Rockmore has been working with students at Hanover’s Bernice A. Ray School (K-5) and the Frances C...

  • CS Professor Wojciech Jarosz has received an NSF CAREER Award! The NSF Program “offers the National Science Foundation’s most prestigious awards in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research.”

    Wojciech's research tackles problems in computer graphics concerned with capturing, simulating, manipulating, and physically...

  • The National Science Foundation (NSF) has recently released a Science Nation video "Using light to move wireless data faster" about the NSF-funded research of Xia Zhou and her team at Dartmouth College.

  • Andrew Campbell will participate in a panel on The Future of Wellbeing with Ubiquitous Sensing. The panel will explore how sensors can shape the future of work and personal life to make people happier and healthier. Ubiquitous sensors have the power to measure every aspect of people's work, home, and bodies 24/7.

  • When Dartmouth employees return to work after the holiday break, they’ll notice construction underway on the expansion of the west end of campus.

    The $200-million project, funded entirely through gifts to the College, will integrate experiential learning in engineering, computer science, and entrepreneurship in a new building to be shared by Thayer School of Engineering, the Department of Computer Science, and the Magnuson Center for Entrepreneurship. The Dartmouth Electron Microscope...

  • A new theory based on the physics of cloud formation and neutron scattering could help animators create more lifelike movies, according to a Dartmouth-led study. Software developed using the technique focuses on how light interacts with microscopic particles to develop computer-generated images.

    The work was conduced by Dartmouth's Visual Computing Laboratory in collaboration with researchers from Pixar, Disney Research, ETH Zurich and...

  • Andrew Campbell and his PhD students received the prestigious ACM SenSys 2018 Test-of-Time Award (10 year award) for their paper: “Sensing meets mobile social networks: the design, implementation and evaluation of the cenceme application”.

    In 2008, when the App Store first opened Professor Campbell and his team released the CenceMe app, which implemented a machine learning algorithm directly on the iPhone for the first time to automatically detected the user’s behavior (e.g., sitting...
