Early Career Researcher Symposium
As a capstone event for the CIFellows program, the CCC will hold a workshop intended to bring together former CIFellows, Postdoctoral Students, and Early Career Researchers in computing to provide them advice at this juncture of their career, enable them to network with other people at similar stages of their career, and discuss emergent research visions and topics with luminaries in the field. The workshop will be 1.5 days in the Washington, DC area, with the opportunity for attendees to meet with program officers from Federal Agencies. The content covered at the workshop will draw from the 2017 CCC Symposium, recent CCC visioning workshops, and CRA programs for Career Mentoring and Leadership in Science Policy.
