The 2014 Center for Science of Information Summer School was hosted at the University of California, San Diego from August 4-8. The school provided a venue where doctoral and postdoctoral students learned from distinguished professors, and formed friendships and collaborations. The school introduced several interdisciplinary life science topics related to the emerging field of science of information. Students presented their own research via a poster session during the school. A professional development session on diversity & success was offered with a panel of scientists including Robert Gray, (Professor Emeritus at Stanford University) Shannon Award winner, IEEE Centennial, and Millennium award winner. A separate, but concurrent, workshop recommended how faculty should teach a science of information course or module.
