February 24-25, 2014 | Westin Georgetown, 2350 M Street, NW, Washington, DC 20037
The biennial Career Mentoring Workshop will be offered by the Computing Research Association February 24 and 25, 2014 at the Westin Georgetown Hotel in Washington, DC. This workshop provides career advice and mentoring activities for post docs, assistant professors, and individuals just starting as industrial researchers in computer science. The workshop, consisting of a series of panels, is interspersed with opportunities to network with senior researchers and representatives from government agencies.
The panels being offered at this workshop cover a wide range of topics. This year will feature a new session held at NSF. After the first day, participants will use their new knowledge to refine one-pagers on their research. On the second day, participants will have the opportunity to visit NSF and discuss their one-pagers with NSF CISE Program Directors.
Other sessions include: Planning Your Research Career; Career Networking; Teaching, Mentoring and Managing Students; Preparing a Tenure Package; Time Management and Family Life; Advice from Early Career Faculty; and Writing Grant Proposals. A list of knowledgeable, seasoned, and insightful (and hopefully entertaining, as well) speakers has already been confirmed (see the agenda).
