The primary goals of the IC are to meet the faculty and their research, and to be introduced to the culture of the CMU Computer Science Department. It is an intense and enjoyable two-week introduction to the department, followed by a semester long series of seminars.

Anastassia Ailamaki organizes this year's IC and maintains the schedules. Rajesh Balan (rajesh@cs.cmu.edu) and Mukesh Agrawal (mukesh@cs.cmu.edu) coordinate the student events. A large number of student volunteers (several of them mentioned in the IC schedule) contributed to each individual event.

These webpages were designed by Spiros Papadimitriou (spapadim@cs.cmu.edu). Spiros also created and installed an easy-to-maintain automatic IC web page generation environment.
