FAQ

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?
