Who is my contact at the Computer Science & Engineering Department?
The Executive Assistant, Jocelyn Encarnacion, will assist you with your visit to CSE. She can be reached at (858) 822-5198.
What information will I need to provide?
- Dates of travel/itinerary
- University/Business affiliation

- Any special needs/requests for your Talk presentation (eg., Audio-Visual, personal laptop connection).
- To reimburse you for your travel expenses you need to provide the following items:

How do I get my Airline ticket?
It is usually easiest, and most convenient, for you to make your own flight arrangements.
You are welcome to make your own travel reservations (air and car rental, if desired). The department supports your travel from state monies, and therefore is only able to reimburse you for coach or economy class air travel. If this will present problems for you, you will need to contact the Executive Assistant (email above) or your Faculty Host immediately describing the circumstances. Any exceptions to policy require pre-approval from our Department Chair and the Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.
Who handles my hotel accommodations?
The Executive Assistant will make your hotel arrangements. Hotel accommodations are within a 5-mile radius of campus.
In some cases, the department will need your credit card number to hold the room reservation. The Executive Assistant will contact you if this is needed.
We need to know if you prefer a smoking or non-smoking room.
The CSE Department can usually prepay your hotel accomodations. Hotel costs (room and tax) will be reimbursed after your visit if Department pre-payment is not possible.
