New account procedure for new students
Welcome new students! Please check out our procedures for CSX accounts -- even if you're not a new student, things have changed a bit in the last couple of months, plus there's now a self-service way to get a new password if you've forgotten yours over the summer! And don't forget the Tech Support link at the top of the page for even more information.

ACM Programming Contest Results new
We had a very successful programming contest on April 14, 2016 with 48 contestants and 133 correct submissions. First place went to James Robinson, with 7 problems solved out of 10. Second place went to Ziheng Lin, with 5 problems solved by 7:28. Third place went to Ben Meyers with 5 problems solved by 7:50. Fourth place went to Thomas Games with 5 problems solved by 7:57. You can see all the problems for this and previous contests at the site http://cs.okstate.edu/~clined/ -- thanks to everyone who participated as well as Dr. Cline for overseeing the contest!
Congratulations to CS students Marcus Gabilheri and the team of Aaron Weaver and Alexander Melton for their respective first place finishes in the annual OSU Mobile App Competition!
Mr. Connor Davis was selected as the computer science outstanding senior!

Integrating disease-correlated ambient information into reliable and privacy-preserving pervasive health monitoring

Many diseases are strongly correlated with and affected by ambient environment, such as temperature and ultraviolet. Some of these diseases like skin cancer are common and can be serious to result in death. Each year more than two million new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in the U.S. Meanwhile, according to CDC WONDER, Oklahoma has the highest mortality rate for melanoma in the U.S. In order to enable better control and treatment of these diseases, it is desirable to integrate correlated ambient information into pervasive health monitoring systems, for both medical research and health-care services. In this project, the team will design and develop the first pervasive health monitoring system that integrates disease-correlated ambient factors. In addition, it will also surpass all existing ones by providing reliable, efficient and privacy-preserving data collection and transmission. At the completion of this project, it not only will greatly enhance the preventive, proactive and patient-centered treatment to many chronic diseases, but also can facilitate the research on discovering new correlations between ambient factors and disease development.

Privacy Issues in Smart Grid Data Sharing

Prediction is a critical aspect of any company. For an energy cooperative, predicting future energy demands, energy generation, and problems in energy transmission or production is important. Predicting the future requires data. The goal of this project is to enable this wide data collection and transmission back to the server so that predictions can be made. The accuracy of the predictions depends largely on the quality and amount of data. Most of the data collection are performed through sensors gathering information such as ambient information, power quality, and harmonics. Sensor data collection: Effective sensor data collection is a challenge because of the different types of sensors, different data formats and different sensor locations. Other challenges are the extensibility and modularity of the sensor hardware because the type of data collected can and will likely change in the future. Replacing the whole sensor infrastructure every few years is not desirable. The solution proposed is to design and deploy a new sensor infrastructure that will integrate all the sensors and aggregate all the data collection.

Mission Statement

The Computer Science Department has a three-pronged mission:

  • 1
    to pursue and to publicize research projects in computer science in order to extend the present state of knowledge in the computer field
  • 2
    to educate students in all program levels in order to provide them with the knowledge, interest, and ethics to become productive members of the computing profession
  • 3
    to serve as an initial and continuing source of education in the field of computer science
