CPSC 324 and 327, Spring 2004
Assignment: Meet the Candidates

As you know, the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science is hiring a new faculty member to teach computer science. Over the next few weeks, we will be bringing three or four candidates to Geneva for on-campus interviews. As part of their visit, each candidate will give a talk. It's important that students attend the talks so that we can get feedback about the candidates and so that the candidates can get a feel for what it is like to teach here.

As an assignment for CPSC 324 and/or CPSC 327, you are required to attend at least three of the candidate talks. After each talk, you will turn in a short evaluation of the candidate. Your participation will be graded as a homework assignment for the course, for a maximum of 20 homework points. Grading will be as follows:

In addition to the talks, there will be a time when each candidates will meet with a group of about six students for about one-half hour. I will be looking for people to attend these meetings. In the event that you absolutely cannot make it to three of the talks, you can substitute participation in these meetings. However, the number of slots in these meetings is limited, so you will need make arrangements quickly. (I will have a time for the meetings soon.)

The first two candidate talks are:

There will be refreshments and a chance to talk with the candidate at 3:30.
