Previous Participants Speak Out About OurCS:

"This conference really lights a fire under your feet about CS research”.

“My workshop, designing games for blind children, was an interesting design challenge and fulfilling because I felt like I was contributing to a long term project and that these ideas might be used in the future as part of this project.”

"I learned the most from my (team) leader, and sharing experiences and working with a small group was very effective.”.

“Such a nice change to engage and not just listen.”

“I thought this conference was extremely well organized and well thought out. I greatly enjoyed all of the events. …I will definitely tell my department of my home institution to recommend the conference to students in the future, assuming there will be another (and there really should be!)”

“I've been talking people’s ears off about the workshop experience.”

“Before this conference I felt like a Ph.D. was out of my league, but now I see it as something attainable that might actually suit my interests and goals very well.”

"I have seen that it is possible to follow your dreams and combine it with a family.”

“I enjoyed actually working on a “mini” research project and learning about the research process.”
