Dartmouth College Computer Science Research Symposium

The First Annual Computer Science Research Symposium will take place at Collis Common Ground from 9-5 on Friday, September 22nd.

The intent of the symposium to highlight graduate student research in the department and to be a catalyst for discussion between different research groups. Eight conference-length talks by graduate students, six brief talks by faculty members and a poster session. We anticipate that everyone will be able to participate in the event in some way.

The information posted on this site will be updated as the order of the talks are determined on the basis of availability.

Please feel free to pose any questions to the members of the organizing committee:
