Rising Stars in EECS

The Rising Stars in EECS Conference was hosted by the UC Berkeley's EECS Department on November 3-4.  The workshops brought together women who are interested in careers in academia for two days of scientific interactions and career oriented discussions.  It included presentations on aspects of life in academia- from finding a faculty position to parameters of success as a junior faculty member.  The workshop attendees shared their research through oral presentations and a poster session covering a wide range of research areas representative of the breadth of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences.
