OCT 5 : 2014 MIT CSAIL Student Workshop

General Information

The CSAIL Student Workshop (CSW) is an informal venue organized by the students, for the students. It brings together student researchers in disparate fields by providing a platform for interaction and the exchange of ideas. The CSAIL Student Workshop provides students the opportunity to find out what friends are doing and show off innovations. Plus, it's an opportunity to get out of Cambridge for the day on someone else's dime. If you're a new student or old, don't miss it!
