Summer 2017 Dates: June 5 - August 11, 2017

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 theory (algorithms, probability, combinatorics) and other disciplines within Computer Science (AI, Operations Reseach, others. Rather than wax philosophical about this just go Look at the Projects!
