The Cornell, Maryland, Max Planck Pre-doctoral Research School 2017

Software Systems, Social Systems, Security and Privacy"

     August 8-13, 2017
     Saarbruecken, Germany

     Applications are requested from undergraduate students or Master's
     students in computer science, computer engineering, or a related
     discipline to The Cornell, Maryland, Max Planck Pre-doctoral Research
     School. The first of this new annual series of week-long schools will
     focus on security and privacy, social systems, distributed systems,
     machine learning, programming languages, and verification. Leading
     researchers will engage with attendees in their areas of expertise.
     The curriculum will include lectures, projects, and interaction with
     faculty from participating institutions.

     The small, selected group of attendees will be exposed to
     state-of-the-art research in computer science, have the opportunity to
     interact one-on-one with internationally leading scientists from three
     of the foremost academic institutions in research and higher learning
     in the US and in Europe, and network with like-minded students. They
     will get a sense of what it is like to pursue an academic or
     industrial research career in computer science and have a head start
     when applying for graduate school.

     For full consideration, applications should be received by February 7,
     2017. Travel and accommodation will be covered for accepted students.
     Further information about the school and how to apply can be found at

Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

As per the course selection policy, enrollment caps for all CS courses have been returned to their actual class size. If the class or section is full then it means that you will need to wait for another student to drop it. You have until 11.59 p.m. on Monday May 14 to add courses.

The following courses still have waiting lists and department consent applied so you will NOT be able to add these courses.

Course enrollment for Spring 2018

Appointments for course enrollment began on Monday 26 March and open enrollment begins on Wednesday 28 March.

For students trying to add CS courses, we encourage you to review the course selection page.

In Computer Science,  we drop the enrolment caps by approximately 15% of the total enrolment number for the course to give advisors room to handle special cases. We will return the enrolment caps to their actual size in the second week of classes after we have had time to deal with the special cases. This will occur on Friday, May 4, 2018, (we don't know the precise time) and remaining space will be available on a first-come-first-served basis only if the section isn't already at its enrolment total. WHAT IS A SPECIAL CASE?
