Dear SCS and DataSys members,
We received an NSF grant earlier this year to fund undergraduate 
research (http://datasys.cs.iit.edu/grants/BigDataX/index.html). This 
summer we, we had 9 undergraduate students participate in this 10-week 
summer program, which included undergraduate students ranging from IIT, 
UChicago, UIC, WSU, Whitworth, and Knox. This week is their last week of 
the program, and they will be having final presentations today 
(Wednesday August 19th) in SB223, starting at 10am, until 4:30pm. I have 
included below the program for the day presentations. I welcome you to 
come join us, for the entire day, or just part of it.  We start in just 
a few minutes.
