Industry meets Science
You are invited to the inaugural NZ CSRSC Suits 'n Geeks evening. This networking event, proudly sponsored by WaikatoLink, will draw together representatives from industry and the brightest computer science graduate students in the country.
To kick the evening off, we are proud to present a man who spans the divided worlds of suits and geeks like a colossus: Craig Nevill-Manning, the founder and head engineer of Google New York. This stunningly successful kiwi expatriate will share his experience of how cutting-edge computer science research is applied in the real world.
Following the keynote, suits and geeks will be left to mingle over dinner and drinks in the beautiful surroundings of the WEL Trust Academy of Performing Arts. Think of it as beauty and the geek, only the beauties we have to offer are representatives of leading IT and computing firms from New Zealand and abroad. Their counterparts aren't merely geeks either; the event will boast at least 50 of New Zealand's top computer science graduate students.
Suits 'n Geeks will be a ticket-only event. Please, register quickly as places are limited. If you have any questions please call Delia Herder on +64 7 858 5172.
