School of Computing Awards – 2011 Edition

Dear all,

On the afternoon of April 13, 2011, a large crowd gathered in the Goodwin Hall Art Gallery on the occasion of the Third Annual Queen's School of Computing Awards ceremony.

This is one of the most important events in the life of the School. It is an opportunity for us to recognize excellence in various forms of endeavour, an opportunity to celebrate the contributions of those of us who distinguished themselves through their exceptional work, and an opportunity to say thank you to those who made a difference in our lives. It is certainly the most enjoyable part of my job.
