Doctoral Symposium


Tuesday - May 23, 2006

Funds to support the Doctoral Symposium have been graciously provided by IBM and the National Science Foundation.

The Doctoral Symposium is a forum for Ph.D. students to discuss their research goals, methods, and results at an early stage in their research, in a critical but supportive environment. The Symposium aims to provide useful guidance for completion of the dissertation research and initiation of a research career.

The event is closed to the public, however we are pleased to share an overview here.
