Faculty Mini-Talks

Join our us for Faculty Mini-Talks to learn about the many on-going research projects conducted by our faculty and their research groups. You have the opportunity to hear from individual faculty through pre-recorded "mini talks" (to be watched beforehand), followed by an in-person Q&A panel and discussion on Friday, October 14, 2022 from 2:30PM-4PM.


All computer science students are invited to learn about the latest research developments, but especially:

  • New PhD students are expected to attend
  • PhD students without a research advisor
  • MS students deciding between MS thesis and MS non-thesis
  • New MS students who have not yet selected a MS advisor
  • Undergraduate students with an interest in (or want to learn more about) computer science research
