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 two pre-event tutorials on Introduction to Python and Introduction to Data Science. See the details about these tutorials.

Eligibility & Applying

Students can apply to attend one or both of the pre-event tutorials (Introduction to Python, Introduction to Data Science), and one of the OurCS@DFW workshops --- any one of activities, any combinations, or all of them.

To be eligible for the OurCS@DFW workshops, you must:

  • Be a student attending a college or university (in an undergraduate program), community college, or high school in North Texas
  • Provide your résumé that includes your GPA, courses, projects, and other relevant information (optional for high-school students, mandatory for college students)
