Upcoming Conferences

Below are a number of Conferences ORS students have attended in the past or are planning to attend in the future to present their research. If you are interested in a conference let us know ASAP so we can assist in securing funding/ travel arrangements, and while ORS does not guarantee stipends to scholars/teams who wish to travel to present their research we will still try to help you in anyway possible.

There is potential for teams attending a conference to bring additional scholars, so please let us know if you are interested and we can try to connect you with other teams that are already going.

Rising Stars in EECS 2018

June 15, 2018

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.

Applicants must be female graduate students within approximately 1-3 years of graduating with a Ph.D. at the time of the workshop or have obtained a Ph.D. no earlier than 2015 and do not currently hold a faculty position.
