DescriptionWe propose a technical workshop targeted to undergraduate students to expose them to research and get them engaged in research at their own University or in a Summer research program. Exposure to research is a critical factor that affects future consideration for graduate studies. Too few undergraduates from underrepresented groups consider research as a career path, and, as a result, their numbers in graduate programs are severely lagging their already low numbers in undergraduate programs in computing.
