The What, How and Why

In the first talk of the newly re-started student seminar series, I am going to introduce our vision for these student-led talks as an opportunity for (research) students in any field of Computer Science to learn about each other’s research, to share and discuss new ideas. I am also going to talk about Imperial College London ACM Student Chapter, the first ACM student chapter in the United Kingdom whose aim is to create an active Computing research student community within our Department. I will explain the importance of these student activities, both from research as well as career perspective using my own experience and tell you how to take a part and become actively involved.

Petr Hosek is a doctoral student in the Department of Computing at Imperial College London, where he works in the Software Reliability Group under the supervision of Cristian Cadar. In his research, he focuses on exploring ways to improve the software update process. Petr has an MSc and BSc in Computer Science from Charles University in Prague, where he specialised in software engineering and dependable systems.
