The Computer Science Student Workshop (CSW) aims to bring Computer Science and Engineering graduate students in Istanbul together in a semiformal workshop atmosphere. There are three main goals to the workshop series:

· Expose graduate students to the concepts of academic writing, peer review, research presentation, critical thinking, and academic way of thinking in general.

·  Establish and foster a semiformal environment for graduate students to meet each other,
share ideas and get feedback. The goal is to form a network of young researchers who will support each other.

· The most important goal of the workshop is to establish a core group of senior graduate student leaders, who will serve as mentors and role models for the coming generation. Therefore, the workshop is organized by graduate students, for graduate students.

CSW’10 took place at Koç İstinye Campus, İstanbul.
