During the weeklong SoNIC Summer Research Workshop, participants learn about a variety of state-of-the-art computing research directions happening at Cornell University and beyond, and get an opportunity to conduct a short research project. Participants will also learn about research-oriented career paths in computing, including the process of obtaining advanced degrees. More information about the next offering can be found on the Cornell DEI website.
