Students win "Best Cyber Security Solution" award

Congratulations to PhD student Jason Reeves and undergrad Chris Frangieh, whose poster “TEDDI: Tamper Detection on Distributed Infrastructure” (based on Jason's thesis research) was voted one of two "Best Cyber Security Solutions" by Advanced Cyber Security Center Annual Conference attendees in November 2015.

Jason's work is part of the Department of Energy's Cyber Resilient Energy Delivery Consortium, of which Dartmouth is a member.

Dartmouth Professors win $100K Microsoft Hololens grant

A team of Dartmouth Professors (Emily Cooper from PBS and Wojciech Jarosz and Xing-Dong Yang from CS) win the highly competitive Microsoft HoloLens Research Grant. Their winning proposal, entitled "Augmenting Reality for the Visually Impaired with Microsoft HoloLens”, will investigate ways that augmented reality devices like the HoloLens can aid the visually impaired in their day-to-day tasks. See more details about all the winners at Microsoft's blog or at Engadget.

Visual Computing Lab research wins Best Paper Award at Pacific Graphics 2015

Research lead by Dartmouth's Prof. Wojciech Jarosz in collaboration with Disney Research was presented at Pacific Graphics 2015 last week, where it won the Best Paper Award. The paper describes a novel dispersion-based method for projecting color images using only a white light source and an optical device with no colored components—consisting solely of one or two prisms and two masks printed on transparencies. In the future, the prototype technology could be refined to provide improved spectral color reproduction or increased light efficiency compared to current projection techniques.
