Working Group CFP

2019-2020 Working Group Call for Proposals


We are currently accepting proposals from USC students for Working Groups. Submit your proposal here by Monday September 16, 2019.

Working Groups are an opportunity for USC students to dream up small-to-medium scale technology projects they’d like to work on with other students over the course of the academic year. In keeping with the mission of the Ahmanson Lab, Working Groups should aim to engage with technology critically, asking important questions or examining vital social issues while building out their respective project. In most cases those submitting a proposal for a Working Group already have a team of students with whom they plan to work, but if neccesary, the Ahmanson Lab can help recruit students for a project.

Working Groups are given access to the Ahmanson Lab space for their work and meetings, to our staff, and to the our technology and equipment. Select Working Groups will also be given a small budget of $500-$1000 to purchase any additional technology, materials, or resources. Projects can vary in scope, topic, and method, but each Working Group must deliver a finished project to be showcased at an end-of-the-year event.

Submit a proposal!

Don’t hesitate to reach out with an idea for a Working Group before submitting a proposal. Contact Samir Ghosh with any questions.
