I want to let you know about a research workshop that we're organizing at Carnegie Mellon University for women in computer science. It's a great opportunity to work with the top-notch faculty and graduate students here and gain exposure to research at one of the world's premier institutions for computer science.  The $50 registration fee covers meals and accommodation, so all you have to do is get yourself here! Details are below:
