We are happy to announce that Cornell will hold the SoNIC Summer Research Program in 2021, this year virtually. The annual event will be conducted over Zoom for four half-days from June 14th to June 17th.

The SoNIC Summer Research Workshop is targeted to undergraduates and master's students. The theme of the workshop centers around cloud computing (systems and networking) and data analytics, but students with background in CS, IS, EE, Math, and Physics are eligible to apply. The SoNIC Summer Research Workshop, hosted by Cornell University and originally created in collaboration with Howard University, is aimed at significantly increasing the number of underrepresented minorities pursuing and obtaining a Ph.D. in computer science. It is designed to encourage undergraduate or master's students to pursue and achieve a Ph.D.

You can find more information on the program's webpage.

If you are interested, please apply by Friday, February 19th. Please feel free to contact us at cis-diversityprograms@cornell.edu with any questions.

Thank you,
Professor Hakim Weatherspoon and the SoNIC team
