OurCS: Opportunities for Undergraduate Research in Computer Science

https://www.cmu.edu/cs/ourcs/

This three-day research-focused workshop aims to improve gender balance in computing research. Undergraduate students from the U.S. and around the globe converge at CMU to work on exploratory problems in small teams led by faculty and researchers from industry and academia. Workshop participants learn about computer science research, but also gain insight into graduate school life from the perspective of current graduate students.
