2019 Cocktail Reception and Formal Dinner - Sept 21st, 2019

During our 2019 Cocktail and Dinner event, over one hundred attendees met another generation of Serbian summer intern students from Rice University. A total of 8 students from the Technical Science Faculty of Novi Sad and from the School of Electrical Engineering at the University of Belgrade arrived at Rice University on a 3-month summer internship. They took on exciting projects under the supervision of Dr Zoran Budimlic and fellow professors from the Department of Computer Science at Rice University.
The students came to Rice University as part of the CSSAP student exchange program, which was established in 2013. The program brings talented Computer Science Students from Serbia to Houston to engage with their American counterparts at Rice University and work with them on cutting edge projects for the duration of the summer. The Serbian American Chamber of Commerce of Houston has signed an agreement with Rice University to assist the students with the logistics of moving to Houston and to ease the transition of settling into a new culture. Since 2013, 28 undergraduate students from Serbia have benefited from CSSAP program.
At the event, the students briefly presented their work at Rice University on neural networks, robotics, artificial intelligence and other areas, and talked about places they visited and how they experienced American culture. Our special guest, Rice University professor Dr. John Mellor-Crummey spoke about how the CSSAP program has progressed over the years and about his work with CSSAP students. Four CSAP alumni students, who are now enrolled in the PhD program at Rice University were also present and joined their younger colleagues on stage. Also present in the audience were members of Houston based IT company ChaiOne and IBM.
Houston folklore ensemble Zavicaj entertained guests with several folk dances from Serbia, while a duo of Vesna i Vladan Mirkovic sang a number of traditional and contemporary Serbian songs.
