OurCS@DFW participants will be placed into parallel research workshops. Each workshop is supervised by a researcher and focuses on a specific topic. See the list of projects.

Over the course of the event, students will:

  • Learn the life cycle of a small research project, including background principles, programming tools and libraries, project design, project implementation, experiment and evaluation, and preparation of presentations
  • Collaborate with other students in workshops that use tutorial-style learning materials and feature hands-on team projects prepared by the supervising researchers
  • Participate in activities such as a keynote speech, panels, mentoring and advising about graduate
  • studies and career pathways, community building, and social activities
  • Present their work at the one-day UTA Student Computing Research Festival (SCRF)

OurCS@DFW also features a pre-event tutorial on Introduction to Python and a Google TensorFlow Machine Learning Tutorial. See the details about these tutorials.
