Prerequisites: Graduate Status in Computer Science.
This is an independent study offering designed to encourage beginning graduate students to conduct, publish, and present original research early in their graduate careers. A graduate student can earn credit for CS 6020 by having a first-authored paper accepted for publication in a top-tier journal or conference and by subsequently presenting the published work in a one-hour departmental research colloquium. The research must be conducted while a graduate student at Utah; the paper must be accepted within two years of enrolling in the graduate program; the journal or conference must be approved by the student's graduate committee; the colloquium must be presented as soon as possible after the acceptance of the paper; and the student must complete these requirements and register for CS 6020 within three years of enrolling in the graduate program. CS 6020 may not be repeated for credit.
