    Workshops & Infosessions


    Hello Trojans!

    Are you looking for assistance on returning to campus, improving their time management skills, and alleviating stress? Please come to our workshops and Drop-in hours hosted by the USC Kortschak Center for Learning and Creativity. No reservation or appointment is required for our workshops and drop-ins.

    KCLC will be hosting Drop-in Hours and Skill Building for Success Workshops on Zoom with a weekly theme of time management, reading strategies, stress management or test-taking. The workshops will be interactive with great tips and resources.

    This week, KCLC will be focusing on Reading Strategies, acquiring strategies for how to complete your course readings effectively and improve comprehension.

    Drop-in hours are available for undergraduate or graduate students to meet with an academic coach without needing to make a reservation. These sessions may be held in a group setting, dependent upon staffing availability and demand.

    If you are interested in learning more about weekly academic coaching, email us at kortschakcenter@usc.edu for additional information.

    KCLC will have more events throughout the semester, and you can check out the most up to date workshop and drop-in schedule on their website https://kortschakcenter.usc.edu/events/

  • Traits for Success in Professional Services Careers hosted by Grant Thornton and VCC

    Tue, Sep 14, 2021 @ 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM

    Viterbi School of Engineering Career Connections

    Workshops & Infosessions


    This Event is Virtual, hosted by Grant Thornton and Viterbi Career Connections!

    Join this event to learn more about some of the traits that make a successful employee in a professional services career! Our professionals will share examples from their client interactions and provide insights that they've learned during their careers. There will be time at the end of the session for networking with Grant Thornton professionals, where you're encouraged to ask questions to learn about the work that their teams do.

    Is this event specific to USC Viterbi School of engineering, or multi-university event?

    Students majoring in any area of engineering who are interested in careers in professional services are welcome to attend, but the Viterbi Information Technology Program is best aligned with the skillset that our advisory professionals look for.

    What majors and class levels are you interested in connecting with?

    We're looking for students entering their second to last year of school for internship opportunities, and students entering their last year of school for full-time opportunities. Students who are earlier on in their academic career are also encouraged to attend if they're interested in careers in professional services and would like to network with our professionals and learn more about the work they do.

    Are you recruiting for internships, full time, or both?

    We are recruiting for internships and full-time opportunities, but the bulk of our recruiting efforts will be focused on internships (for students graduating any time between December 2022 and summer of 2023)

    Can you offer Visa sponsorship? Unfortunately, Grant Thornton is not able to offer Visa sponsorship to candidates.
    Are you able to hire a student on CPT or OPT? Sadly not; Grant Thornton requires that candidates do not require sponsorship now or at any point in the future.


    Maggie Cutler Young (she/her/hers) is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

  • Epstein Seminar: Stephen J. Wright (University of Wisconsin-Madison) - The Role of Complexity Bounds in Optimization

    Tue, Sep 14, 2021 @ 03:30 PM - 04:50 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. Stephen J. Wright, University of Wisconsin-Madison

    Talk Title: The Role of Complexity Bounds in Optimization

    Abstract: Complexity analysis in optimization seeks upper bounds on the amount of work required to find approximate solutions of problems in a given class with a given algorithm, and also lower bounds, usually in the form of a worst-case example from a given problem class as regards the work required by a particular class of algorithms. The relationship between theoretical complexity bounds and practical performance of algorithms on "typical" problems varies widely across problem and algorithm classes, and relative interest among researchers between these two aspects of algorithm design and analysis has waxed and waned over the years. This talk surveys complexity analysis and its relationship to practice in optimization, with an emphasis on linear programming and convex and nonconvex nonlinear optimization, providing historical (and cultural) perspectives on research in these areas.

    Biography: Stephen J. Wright holds the George B. Dantzig Professorship, the Sheldon Lubar Chair, and the Amar and Balinder Sohi Professorship of Computer Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His research is in computational optimization and its applications to data science and many other areas of science and engineering. Prior to joining UW-Madison in 2001, Wright held positions at North Carolina State University (1986-1990) and Argonne National Laboratory (1990-2001). He has served as Chair of the Mathematical Optimization Society (2007-2010) and as a Trustee of SIAM for the maximum three terms (2005-2014). He is a Fellow of SIAM. In 2014, he won the W.R.G. Baker Award from IEEE for best paper in an IEEE archival publication during the three years 2009-2011. He was awarded the Khachiyan Prize by the INFORMS Optimization Society in 2020 for lifetime achievements in optimization, and received the NeurIPS Test of Time Award in 2020 for a paper presented at that conference in 2011. Prof. Wright is the author / coauthor of widely used text and reference books in optimization including "Primal Dual Interior-Point Methods" and "Numerical Optimization". He has published widely on optimization theory, algorithms, software, and applications. Prof. Wright served from 2014-2019 as Editor-in-Chief of the SIAM Journal on Optimization and previously served as Editor-in-Chief of Mathematical Programming Series B. He has also served as Associate Editor of Mathematical Programming Series A, SIAM Review, SIAM Journal on Scientific Computing, and several other journals and book series.
