Duncan Hall, Rice University

Rice University’s Computer Science Department turns 35 on July 1, 2019. We will be celebrating the alumni and faculty members who have contributed so much to our academic programs and to technology-driven industries and organizations, including those you have launched as entrepreneurs.

A department faculty committee and alumni focus group have shaped an exciting agenda that spans 70 hours and includes both keynote addresses and panels of speakers, as well a career mixer. We’ve also arranged a research and demo fair to highlight some of the technologies our CS community members are developing, plus a family track that includes a behind-the-scenes tour of NASA.

All speakers, panelists, and presenters are Rice CS alumni, faculty members, and students. You can expect to hear a short retrospect of the department’s evolution as well as forecasts for the future of technology, education, employment, and ethics.

This rich agenda, however, is just a vehicle for you to come together and re-connect with your Computer Science classmates, professors, labbies, TAs, and research teams.
