Computer Science Ph.D. Student Seminar

The Computer Science (CS) Department of the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) is pleased to announce the establishment of a Ph.D. student seminar series to promote academic exchange with students from other institutions. Starting from October 2017, the department will invite and pay for outstanding computer science Ph.D. candidates from around the country to visit NPS and present their current dissertation work as part of the Emerging Topics class (CS-4924). This seminar is open to all CS students and faculty. Visiting speakers will have opportunities for one-to-one meetings with NPS faculty and a student round table discussion with NPS students.
