Description/Abstract

Undergraduate research plays an important role in computer science education. Through it, students exhibit a reasonable depth of knowledge about at least one area of computer science. However, undergraduate research is very challenging. Students might not be well prepared or motivated enough to conduct research. Faculty might not be willing to put the tremendous effort into mentoring undergraduates and bringing them up to speed so they can perform high level research. This presentation discusses the different venues where students can perform undergraduate research. We share our experience and the lessons learned that helped undergraduates perform internationally competitive research.
