From August 8-9 2016, members of the computer science faculty at the University of Maryland will travel to Kaiserslautern, Germany to meet with faculty from the Max Planck Institute (MPI). They will be discussing plans for the newly-established joint Ph.D. program in Computer Science in which University of Maryland students will be co-advised by faculty at both institutions.
This two-day Max Planck Maryland Faculty Summit will give members of each group an opportunity to meet in person, learn more about each other’s research, identify common interests, and look for opportunities to collaborate and co-advise students in the joint program. Professor Peter Druschel of MPI and Professor Bobby Bhattacharjee of the Computer Science Department at UMD are the directors of the joint Ph.D. program and organizers of the summit.
Faculty participants from the Computer Science Department include:
Samir Khuller, Professor and Elizabeth Stevinson Iribe Chair of Computer Science
