Poster contests winners:

There were two poster contests – Open Choice for students presenting on a topic of their choice, and Original Project Work for posters about computing systems and projects completed entirely by the students, such as final year projects.

The Open Choice contest went to Alexa Alexandru of the University of Essex, and the Original Project Work to Gemma Warnock of Aberdeen. We also had a “People’s choice” awards in each category, where everyone got to vote for their favourite: these went to Nuhzah Gooda Sahib of Queen Mary University of London for original project work, and Penny Broadhurst of the Open University for open choice.
