NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)
Summer 2010 - Computer Vision and Multi-Agent Systems
Department of Computer Science, Utah State University
The NSF REU Site at Utah State University (USU) will support ten undergraduate students participating in the ongoing research activities of faculty members in the field of Computer Vision and Multi-Agent Systems (CVMA) during a 10-week summer session. The REU program will begin by giving participants formal instruction in CVMA. In consultation with faculty mentors, students will then be given various research problems in areas such as semantic-based content-based image retrieval, image forensic and authentication, object detection (fire and flame detection, barcode reader, etc.), and coopertive network monitoring 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).
