The UNT Department of Computer Science and Engineering's Center for Information and Computer Security (CICS) has helped the City of Denton to be recognized as one of the top 10 best data security cities in the country. Dr. Ram Dantu is the Director of this CSE Center. The report, by New Jersey-based corporate location consulting shop Boyd Co. Inc., cites the relatively low cost of operating in Denton, along with the cityâ€™s strong telecommunications infrastructure and its relative insulation from natural disasters. For more information, read this Denton Record-Chronicle article and this Dallas Business Journal article.

The regional competition for high school students to participate in the North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad (NACLO 2012) was hosted by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering on February 2, 2012. 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.
Welcome to the UNT Department of Computer Science and Engineering for the Spring 2012 semester and Happy New Year! I look forward to seeing all of you in the department. This semester we'll be recruiting new faculty members for our department. Each candidate will present a seminar about their research during their visit. These visits will start February 6. I think you will find these talks interesting and encourage you to attend. Please check this website and the student email newsletters that we'll be sending out during the semester for information on these and other planned activities. Good luck with all of your classes!
Congratulations go to the Computer Science and Engineering Fall Graduates. A full list of our graduates can be seen here.
The UNT Department of Computer Science and Engineering celebrates Computer Science Education Week by hosting its CSE Advisory Council meeting on Friday, December 9. Everyone can participate in this call to action to advocate for computing and elevate computer science education for students at all levels. You can pledge your support for CSEdWeek to raise awareness of the role computing plays in all our lives and to promote computer science education for all students by going to this website.
Dr. Armin R. Mikler presented a webinar â€œUtilizing Computational Tools for the Design and Analysis of Bio-Emergency Response Plans" for the Texas Department of State Health Services in Austin on November 30. Dr. Mikler is the Director of the Computational Epidemiology Research Laboratory at the University of North Texas.
Following the accidental or deliberate release of harmful biological agents, responders have little time to mount an adequate response. Researchers at the newly formed Center for Computational Epidemiology and Response Analysis at the University of North Texas are developing new tools that will help to prepare for such events. "Where?" and "How?" questions are the basis for developing efficient emergency response plans long before these health emergencies actually occur.
Professor A.R. Hurson was the ACM Guest Speaker on Friday, November 4. Dr. Hursonâ€™s presentation was on Heterogenous and mobile databases. Dr. Hurson (bio) is currently a Professor and Chair of Computer Science at Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla, MO. His research is in pervasive computing, heterogenous and multi databases. He has also worked on computer architecture.
