The 2003 Symposium on Computational Geometry (SOCG) will be part of FCRC (
in San Diego, June 8 - 10, 2003.  FCRC has two activities directed towards student participants.

One activity is a series of breakfasts with senior researchers.  The purpose is to allow students to 
meet with senior researchers informally.  If you would like to participate in the research breakfasts, 
there is an online registration form accessible through the FCRC website.  

The second activity is a series of two sessions where students can present posters about
research results.  The sessions are currently scheduled for monday June 9 and thursday Jun 12, 
from 5:30 to 7:00pm.  (Unfortunately the SOCG business meeting is also scheduled for monday evening.) 
A flyer about the poster sessions is included below.  The sessions are open to any student.  However, 
students need to register planned participation so we can get a count (and if there are many registrants, 
it's possible participation may be limited).

If you are a student attending SOCG with research results, please feel welcome to participate in
the poster session; similarly, if you know a student with research results who is attending, please 
encourage them to participate.

To register for the poster session or for more information, please contact

FCRC Student Attendees:

     Interested in displaying your work to the greater Computer
Science community?  Interested in a chance to make connections?  Then
apply to participate in the FCRC Student Poster Session.

     Tentatively scheduled from 5:30 to 7:00 on Monday and Thursday
nights, the poster session will be a chance for you to display your
research on one of these nights, and to interact with conferences
attendees from a wide range of areas.  Applicants will be selected by
their conferences, and will be given space for a poster display.  Held
in conjunction with an FCRC social event for all conference attendees,
researchers will have ample opportunity to view your poster and
discuss your research with you.

     Interested students should apply though their own conference;
each conference will select students for participation under the
conference-specific criteria.  Students will be assigned to the night
corresponding to the conference that has selected them.  For more
information see the Student Activities link on the FCRC web page
