In this talk on the occasion of my lifetime achievement award, rather than review the research itself, I’ve decided to tell the story of how that research came to be, and how a sequence of early criticisms and rejections led to the opportunities that shaped my career.

This talk should be of particular interest to students and early researchers just beginning their career, but I hope it will be entertaining for everyone.

September 29, 2020

The Discovery Grant Program of NSERC is one of the most highly appreciated programs by Canadian computer scientists according to the 2018 survey by CS-Can|Info-Can. The proposal is only 5 pages long, and one applies once in 5 years, but probably this is the reason that it has been called “the hardest 5 pages” one has to write.

In this webinar, a distinguished panel of computer scientists who have served recently on the Grant Selection Committee (GSC 1507, Computer Science) will provide their insights into what makes a successful NSERC Discovery Grant proposal.
