Networking Panamanians with PhDs in Computer Science/Engineering

UPDATE (2010-4-17): This didn't work out, so I'm taking the site offline. I'm currently trying to do the same using Facebook.



I started a project to locate Panamanians with PhDs in Computer Science (CS) and Computer Engineering (CE), or PhD candidates in those disciplines.

According to my estimates there are less than 20 of us around the world, so I think it would be a good idea to know who we are and where we are. Additionally, what's most important is to help those that will return to Panamá to try to do research there, by giving them a list of potential international collaborators sharing the motivation of igniting research in Panamá—isolation, lack of CS/CE research infrastructure and institutes, and abscence of PhD students are major issues for anyone trying to do quality research in Panamá.

If you know a Panamanian with a PhD in CS or CE, or a Panamanian PhD candidate in CS/CE, please direct them to the Panamanian Computer Science/Engineering PhD Wiki to help us build the network.
