Hot Topics Session

As part of the "How to Get a Job" seminar series, we would like to hold a special "Hot Topics in Computer Science" session where representatives from each area prepare a 5--15 minute presentation about

  1. What's hot in the area?
  2. What particular institutions known for in this area?
  3. What is UCSD known for?

Schedule (updated): Tuesday, Feburary 9 at 3:00 pm -- 6:00 pm (Room 1202)

Closed Polls

  • How to Get a Job Seminar (closed Dec. 16): When would you like the next seminar to take place?
  • Hot Topics format (closed Dec. 16): Should the Hot Topics session be one marathon session (easier to schedule/organize), or 2--3 smaller session (easier to digest)? We will give weight to those who are actually going on the job market this year.
  • Hot Topics Scheduling (closes Jan. 1): When shall we schedule the 3-hour "Hot Topics" session? Please paint your available times in the following WhenIsGood poll.
