Microsoft Research held a 2.5 day workshop which was designed to provide a unique view of the far-reaching and sometimes surprising ways in which computer science research is changing the world.

 Attendees heard about a selection of Microsoft research projects past and present, and Microsoft researchers shared their experiences and advice for making a successful career as a researcher in computer science. The event  provided details of the wide range of freely-available Microsoft Research software tools.

The workshop took place at Microsoft Research in Cambridge, UK, from 16th to 18th June 2014 and is open to students and academic researchers only.
