Reshaping Doctoral Education

a workshop delivered at CRA's Conference at Snowbird 2000
July 10, 10:30 am - noon

The information technology revolution is causing a fundamental change in the structure, economics, and business processes of leading companies. On the science front in academia, research is becoming inherently more interdisciplinary, as focus shifts from the discovery of new information toward a complementary focus on the computationally intensive task of processing the data in order to extract meaningful information.  The workshop focuses on the changing needs and issues in Ph.D. education in computer science as a result of need for practical and interdisciplinary training, future directions in science and technology, the proliferation of startups, industry-academic partnerships, and intellectual property management issues.
