Please see attached the forwarded email from Prof. Caesar about a panel. If you are interested, feel free to register. I am sure this’d be a great panel to attend.

Subject: How to Succeed in Graduate School (online panel, May 5 2021)
Hi Yue,

I am writing to let you know that ACM SIGCOMM, the National Science
Foundation's PAWR project office, and EMPOWER, are launching a series of
periodic talks, panels, and other activities, that will meet twice a month

The next talk in the series will be on the topic of How to Succeed in
Graduate School (abstract appended below). If you think students from Mason
would be interested to see it, or if you know of anyone else who might be
interested, I'd be very grateful if you could let them know about it.



How to Succeed in Graduate School (online event, May 5 2021)

Graduate school can be a very different experience than undergrad --
students are often exposed for the first time to independent research,
publishing, giving talks and attending conferences, and much more. As such,
the set of skills and efforts needed to succeed in graduate school can be
quite different as well. In this panel, a team of world-renowned educators
will give advice on how students can succeed in graduate school.

The panel will include Professor Jennifer Rexford (Princeton University),
Professor Edmundo de Souza e Silva (UFRJ, Brazil), Professor Anja Feldmann
(Max Planck Institute), and Professor David Patterson (UC Berkeley, Turing
Award winner).
