“Emerging Trends in Computer Science”

August 7-12, 2018, Saarbr├╝cken, Germany

Outstanding undergraduate and Masters students are invited to learn about emerging trends in computer science research, including software-defined networking, practical formal methods, computational economics and machine learning, systems and network algorithmics, security and privacy, and natural language processing. Leading researchers will engage with attendees in their areas of expertise: the curriculum will include lectures, projects, and interaction with faculty from participating institutions.

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.
