ICS Portfolios (http://ics-portfolios.github.io) is a new service provided by the ICS Department to highlight the skills and interests of faculty, students, and alumni. It is based on TechFolios, a portfolio template system designed by Professor Philip Johnson and used in the software engineering curriculum.

Gerald Lau was recently awarded the Pakela Award for Outstanding Advisor at the University of Hawaii Manoa. From the award page: “Gerald Lau serves as a stellar model for integrating academic advising into the University’s educational mission. He is a Faculty Specialist for the rapidly growing Department of Information and Computer Sciences (ICS). He provides […]
Associate Professor Rich Gazan was awarded an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) grant for the project “Online Q&A in STEM Education: Curating the Wisdom of the Crowd.” The project received $491,973.00 in funding. In partnership with Chirag Shah at Rutgers University School of Communication and Information, the three-year project will investigate how combining […]
The UH ACM Student Chapter (ACManoa) hosted two outreach workshops in ICSpace (POST 318B) earlier this month. The workshops provided students from the UH Information and Computer Science (ICS) program with the opportunity to mentor high school students interested in programming. Members of ACManoa took the opportunity to give back to the community and foster […]
Wetware Wednesday, a monthly high tech networking event hosted by HTDC, will be hosted this month by the ICS Department and Jason Leigh’s LAVA laboratory. Join us from 6-8pm on March 30 in Keller 102 for light refreshments, conversation, and the following five minute lightning talks by ICS faculty and students: Dylan Kobayashi, Intro to […]
Programmers run into parsing problems all the time, whether it’s a data format like JSON, a network protocol like SMTP, a server configuration file for Apache, or a simple spreadsheet macro language. My goal with ANTLR 4 was to make it as easy as possible to build parsers and the language applications on top. ANTLR […]
The 2016 AT&T mobile hackathon is coming up this Friday, March 11, 2016. It is designed for attendees interested in coding mobile apps or hacking hardware solutions. So join us as we hack hardware, build apps/mobile apps, get fed, compete for prizes across different categories and most importantly: meet new people and scout for teammates […]
AlgorithmHub is a cloud based service that promotes the development, sharing and publishing of algorithms. AlgorithmHub creates communities around algorithms, thus minimizing reinvention and accelerating the adoption of algorithms. During the seminar we will provide a brief tutorial of AlgorithmHub and some of the open source technologies behind the platform, including Docker, Node, and React. Please bring a computer if […]
Starting from the observation that quite frequently the memory system is the performance bottleneck, I will discuss a typical memory efficient algorithm, namely the classical one for dense matrix multiplication. Then I will briefly sketch how similar ideas are helpful in the setting of Sparse Grids (I’ll explain what that is too), and report on experiments we did with this […]
Social media affects political decisions – for better or worse, University of Hawaii at Manoa researchers say. As the election season heats up, it’s important to understand how sites like Facebook and Twitter could be affecting voters’ political opinions. UH researchers from the Hawaii Computer-Human Interaction Lab recently produced a study that looked at how […]
