Rising Stars in EECS: An Academic Career Workshop for Women
November 1-2, 2012
 
MIT Stata Center, Building 32
32 Vassar Street
Cambridge, MA 02139
 
This workshop brings top graduate and postdoc women in EECS together for two days of scientific discussions and informal sessions aimed at
navigating early stages of the academic career. In addition to research presentations, we will hold panel discussions with MIT and
invited faculty, discussions about the interview and the promotion processes and set aside time for the participants to get to know each
other and form connections that will hopefully persist through time.

Organizers
Polina Golland, Associate Professor, MIT Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory
 
Anantha P. Chandrakasan, Joseph F. and Nancy P. Keithley Professor of Electrical Engineering
Department Head, MIT Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
