Application Deadline: February 20 (9 p.m. EST)
Combinatorial Algorithms Applied Research (CAAR) is a 10 week NSF funded* research program designed to bridge the disconnect between the core algorithms community and research communities in other disciplines within Computer Science. It is an REU (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) program that aims to expose undergraduate students to applied research projects that need the design of new algorithms. In order to help create a climate where students learn new techniques, understand a few real world problems, and work on designing and implementing algorithms, the students will be involved in applied algorithms research projects that will be jointly advised by members of the UMD theory group in conjunction with faculty in different research areas (Systems, AI, HCI, DataBases).
Who can apply? All undergraduate students who have taken a basic course in Algorithms and Discrete Math are encouraged to apply.
What will you get?
- Students will be provided with $5000 as stipend for the duration of the programme.
- All participants will be provided with on campus housing if required.
- Travel money available
- Field trips
