About the CS Expo

who we are and why we do this
The Expo Mission

The CS Expo is the premier annual event for students, alumni and faculty of the Computer Science department at the Florida State University to showcase science, technology, and cutting-edge projects, and to exchange opportunities and experiences. This one-day event sets up an open forum that features technical talks, research presentations, demos and posters by computer science students, a "Grad-Made-Good" talk by this year's keynote speaker Dr. Matthew Small from Google, and several talks from industry partners. Alumni and friends of the Computer Science department participate in the event to share post-graduate experiences and opportunities for our students.

The computer was born to solve problems that did not exist before.

– Bill Gates

We can only see a short distance ahead, but we can see plenty there that needs to be done.

– Alan Turing

The question of whether computers can think is like the question of whether submarines can swim.

– Edsger Dijkstra

An algorithm must be seen to be believed.

– Donald Knuth

A language that doesn't have everything is actually easier to program in than some that do.

– Dennis Ritchie

One accurate measurement is worth a thousand expert opinions.

– Grace Hopper
