This year, POPL (in conjunction with PLMW) is experimenting with mentoring breakfasts.
Two types of breakfasts will be held:
student mentoring breakfasts, in which faculty members and professionals provide advice about grad school;
faculty/professional mentoring breakfasts, in which PL faculty and professionals can connect with peers at a similar or more senior career stage, for a low-pressure atmosphere to help build one’s support group and receive mentorship.
These are free on POPL days for which you are registered. You may volunteer to attend as many breakfasts as you like.
You can sign up to give or receive mentoring when registering for POPL.
