The Research in Action (RIA) showcase took place on Wednesday, April 15, 2015 at the Royal Conservatory of Music.
A listing of 2015 projects can be found here. This year's event also included a number of booths hosted by industry partners, listed here.
Every year, the Department of Computer Science (DCS) opens its doors to host “Research in Action,” (RIA) a research showcase that welcomes the general public and industry representatives from the Greater Toronto Area and beyond.
The showcase highlights a cross-section of research, presenting demonstrations from a range of subject areas. Past projects have included a new analysis tool for blogs, novel interactions for molecular visualization, a pressure-based pen display and software that visualizes and analyzes protein-protein interaction networks, enabling insights into the proteins that play key roles in diseases such as cancer. Please see the links on this page for the full listing of past RIA projects, their descriptions and the research teams.
While DCS has ongoing relationships with a number of organizations, it is critical that new collaborations between industry and the department are always being explored. DCS is eager to learn more of industry concerns and companies, in turn, can benefit by exposure to the latest technological developments and a network of the world’s greatest researchers.
The department hopes “Research in Action” will provide a catalyst for new partnerships- and play a role in building the City of Toronto as a leader in high impact technology.
