There is no better way to spend the student holiday than getting out of Boston and venturing to the beautiful town of Gloucester with fellow CSAILers, learning about each other's research work, strolling on the white sand at the Good Harbor Beach, enjoying the fun of DDR and video games, and concluding the day with an extravagant feast of lobster and steak. If it is what you are thinking, you are not alone. There are 140 like-minded people who have registerered for the workshop. We hope to see you all there!

The CSAIL Student Workshop (CSW) is a meeting of students, by the students, and for the students. It brings together student researchers in the disparate fields, offering a venue for interaction and the exchange of ideas. The workshop provides an opportunity for participants to gain an overview of ongoing research in CSAIL, to meet other researchers, and to initiate collaboration among different research groups. The scope of the meeting is broad, and the primary audience are students themselves. It is your chance to find out what your friends are doing, an opportunity to show off your own innovations, and a forum to get your work published. Plus, it's an opportunity to get out of Cambridge for the day on someone else's dime.
