Reverse EXPO is an annual event organized by the Department of Computing Science at the University of Alberta that brings together academia and industry to promote collaboration and disseminate the latest research on Computing Science.

We welcome students actively engaged in research in all areas of CS and at all levels (MSc, PhD, or undergrads) across Campus Alberta to showcase their work via posters or demonstrations.

We invite guests from industry and government involved with R&D to network with our students, post-doctoral fellows, and faculty members.

Join us at Reverse EXPO 2019 to:

  • Network with faculty members, post-doctoral fellows and graduate students
  • Explore opportunities for research collaboration
  • Meet your next potential employees / interns!
  • Support and learn about student research being done in Computing Science 


12:00 - 12:30 PM Check in (no on-site registration)
12:30 - 1:00 PM Lunch and opening remarks
Presentation: Research collaborations - Funding opportunities and procedures
1:30 - 3:30 PM Demos and Posters
3:30 - 4:00 PM Coffee and networking

Is the EXPO a recruiting event?

While the EXPO is a technical conference whose main goal is for industry to know about the world-class research in Computing and AI done at the University of Alberta, companies are welcome to recruit students for both internships and full time positions during the event.

I'm a graduate student in a discipline other than CS. How can I participate?

Please email the organizers to pitch your research. We will accommodate as many students as possible.

I'm a graduate student but not at the UofA. How can I participate?

Please email the organizers to pitch your research. We will accommodate as many students as possible.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is ample free parking at the venue. We will have continuous shuttle service from the UofA campus to the venue, starting at 11AM.

How can I contact the organizer with any other questions?
