Software Systems, Social Systems, Security and Privacy"
August 8-13, 2017
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.
