BACTAC - Grad Students

The Sink

Department Committee Nominations/Info Meeting
Grad Students
Department of Computer Science

If you think you might be interested in getting more involved in the department, and/or just want to hang out, come to The Sink on 4/12. We'll be hearing from past/current committee reps on what it's like to be a grad student committee rep and the details of each committee. We'll then be taking nominations for who wants to run for the open positions for the 2005-2006 school year. You can nominate yourself or have someone nominate you -- it's all very informal. Between and after the committee business we'll be hanging out, eating and drinking at this fine local establishment.

If you can't make it to The Sink, feel free to email questions to Jennifer Abernethy or to nominate yourself for a position. Here are the open committee positions that you can run for:

  • computing committee, 1 rep

  • undergrad committee, 1 rep

  • social committee, members, around 10

  • social committee, chair, 1 rep

  • women in CS group chair, 1 rep

  • executive committee, 1 rep (must be PhD student)

  • graduate committee 2 reps: 1 PhD post-prelim; 1 PhD pre/in-midst-of-prelims or MS student

  • United Government of Graduate Students (UGGS): 1 rep; the Graduate Student Handbook has some info of these positions and committees.

BACTAC, the Beverage And Chips Tuesday Afternoon Colloquium, is a weekly forum run by graduate students. The goal is provide an informal setting in which anyone can (basically) present anything. In the past, we have had practice talks for conferences and job interviews, research reports, juggle lessons (!), student representative reports, internship discussions, an introduction to ergonomics, and "pay attention to this when you are going to look for job" discussions.

BACTAC is meant to be an informal and social event to promote the interaction among graduate students. BACTAC is typically held every Tuesday, at 3:30pm, in room ECOT 831. Free munchies and drinks are provided.

Please email Caleb Phillips for more information or if you want to be a speaker.
