DescriptionThe mission of the Computer Systems Genome Project (CSGenome) is to conduct the first scientific effort to catalog the lineage of computer system performance over time to enable knowledge discovery and further understanding of the impact of computing innovations on transformative technologies, the knowledge-based economy, and societal change. This work is powered by a large group of undergraduate research students with the specific intention to engage a broader group of students in computer systems research.
Facilitation of this supportive research team has propagated the recruitment and retention of a diverse set of students in an area of computer science that traditionally lacks such representation of women, black students, and students with disabilities. This talk will address team culture, management, and communication strategies that enable an encouraging learning and research environment for a diverse group of undergraduate students. The supportive community atmosphere promotes a sense of belonging for students and acquisition of practical skills develops their self-efficacy. Several such students have chosen to pursue graduate studies in computer systems.
