Combinatorics and Algorithms for Real Problems

Summer 2016 Dates: June 6 - August 12, 2016

ADMISSIONS CLOSED

WE ARE FILLED UP.

WHAT IS IT?

Combinatorics and Algorithms for Real Problems (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 and will be advised by UMD faculty in different research areas.
