Canadian Undergraduate Computer Science Conference!

The Canadian Undergraduate Computer Science Conference includes keynotes presented by a diverse array of professions related to the computer science field including university professors from around the country, entrepreneurs and professionals in the industry. These talks will allow students to gain a broader view of what is beyond their school environment as well as a chance to connect with the larger community.

In addition to attending the talks, we fully welcome students to present talks of their own to share their research, projects they’ve been working on or a topic of interest to them. The mornings will contain student talks, keynote speakers, and coffee breaks. We will be hosting a Women in Computer Science Dinner, with several panelists sharing their experiences followed by a discussion. The conference will conclude with a closing banquet, awards for best presentation, and a dance. 

For more information and to register, please go to www.cucsc.ok.ubc.ca. Early Bird Registration closes May 24th and general registration closes June 1st, so please register today!

Students are also welcome to join us July 6th-8th for an "Optimization Summer School", put on by the UBCO Optimization team. This workshop will cover three topics: derivative-free optimization; surrogate modelling and global optimization techniques; and computational Convex Analysis. More information is available at ww.cucsc.ok.ubc.ca/en/optimization.php.
