We put together a wonderful opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to spend a part of their summer at (or remotely at) MIT, focusing on geometry processing related research ideas, while collaborating with the experts in the field. Please see the information and resources below and share with interested participants.
**** SGI 2021 ****
The Summer Geometry Institute (SGI) is a six-week paid summer research program introducing undergraduate and graduate students to the field of geometry processing. Geometry processing has a long history of breakthrough developments that have guided the design of 3D tools for computer vision, additive manufacturing, scientific computing, and other disciplines. Algorithms for geometry processing combine ideas from disciplines including differential geometry, topology, physical simulation, statistics, and optimization.
In the first week of SGI, participants will attend hands-on tutorials introducing the theory and practice of geometry processing; no background or previous experience is necessary. During the remaining weeks, participants will work in teams on research projects led by faculty and research scientists in this discipline, while attending talks and other sessions led by visiting researchers.
SGI will be held remotely in 2021, but participants are expected to be engaged full-time. Contingent on current events and university policy, we may be able to offer optional in-person participation at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, MA.
No prior research experience or coursework in geometry processing is necessary to participate in SGI; students who have excelled in the math, science, and/or computing programs available to them are strongly encouraged to apply. Undergraduates and master's level students with a background in computer science, mathematics, or other related disciplines are encouraged to apply. We will release a separate call for mentors and staff participants.
SGI is dedicated to the inclusion of women and members of minoritized groups at all levels of geometry processing research. We strongly encourage women, students from minoritized groups, first-generation college students, and students with non-traditional backgrounds to apply. No prior research experience or coursework in geometry processing is necessary to participate in SGI; students who have excelled in the math, science, and/or computing programs available to them are strongly encouraged to apply. Pending tax considerations associated with the honoraria, international students qualify for participation.
