NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)
Summer 2007 - Computer Vision and Image Processing
Department of Computer Science, Utah State University
The NSF REU Site at Utah State University (USU) will support eight undergraduate students participating in the ongoing research activities of faculty members in the field of Computer Vision and Image Processing (CVIP) during a 10-week summer session. The REU program will begin by giving participants formal instruction in CVIP. In consultation with faculty mentors, students will then be given various research problems in areas such as face recognition, eye tracking, digital watermarking, image/video compression, and content-based image retrieval to work on. There will be weekly research group meetings, and informal brown-bag lunches where students will report results to date,and future plans. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about and participate in research in an important field of computer science. Social activities in the exciting outdoor environment of Northern Utah and its surrounds are also planned. Participants may, if they wish, register for 1-3 credit hours of USU undergraduate research (CS4950).
