We are happy to announce that we have completed the 6th biennial CRA Career Mentoring Workshop. The workshop provided career advice and mentoring activities for senior graduate students, post docs, assistant professors, and individuals just starting as industrial researchers in computer science. The workshop was structured as a series of panels interleaved with opportunities to network with senior researchers and representatives from the NSF, DARPA, and NIH.
Our Panels Were: Planning Your Research Career, Career Networking, Teaching, Mentoring and Managing Students, Preparing a Tenure Dossier, Time Management and Family Life, Advice from Early Career Faculty, and Writing Grant Proposals.
Our Speakers Were: Jan Cuny (NSF), Mary Fernandez (AT&T Labs Research), Kathleen Fisher (AT&T Labs Research), Dan Grossman (University of Washington), Laura Haas (IBM Almaden), Susanne Hambrusch (Purdue), Mary Jean Harrold (Georgia Tech), Kim Hazelwood (University of Virginia), Jeff Hollingsworth (University of Maryland), Chad Jenkins (Brown), Margaret Martonosi (Princeton), J Moore (University of Texas at Austin), Dave Patterson (UC Berkeley), Bobby Schnabel (Indiana University), Mary Lou Soffa (University of Virginia), Valerie Taylor (Texas A&M), and Terry Yoo (NIH).
