Applications are requested from undergraduate students or Master’s students in computer science, computer engineering, or a related discipline to The Cornell, Maryland, Max Planck Pre-doctoral Research School. The fourth of this new annual series of week-long schools will focus on emerging research trends in computer science, including databases and data analysis, distributed systems, security and privacy, Internet measurement and network architecture, large-scale machine learning, and theory of deep learning. Leading researchers will engage with attendees in their areas of expertise.

The curriculum will include lectures and interaction with faculty from participating institutions.

The small, select group of attendees will be exposed to state-of-the-art research in computer science, have the opportunity to interact one-on-one with internationally leading scientists from three of the foremost academic institutions in research and higher learning in the US and in Europe, and network with like-minded students. They will get a sense of what it is like to pursue an academic or an industrial research career in computer science and have a head start when applying for graduate school.

For full consideration, applications should be received by February 15, 2020. Travel and accommodation will be covered for accepted students.
