2014 NSF REU in Computer Vision
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has designated the Center for Research in Computer Vision at UCF as a site for Research Experiences for Undergraduates in the area of Computer Vision (http://crcv.ucf.edu/REU/
). The purpose of the REU program is to encourage undergraduate students to pursue graduate school and research careers.
UCF has continued to be an REU site in Computer Vision since the inception of the program by NSF in 1987. More than 270 undergraduates from over sixty institutions throughout the country have participated in this project. These undergraduates have co-authored more than 70 research papers (in reputed journals like PAMI , PR, CVGIP , and conferences like ICCV , CVPR , ICPR ). Approximately half of these participants have gone to graduate schools, fifteen students have written Honors in the Major Theses, several participants are now faculty members at different Universities, and several participants have started their own companies.
This summer, eleven students from eight institutions are participating in the REU program.
