Announcing: NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates: Computational
Methods for Understanding Music, Media, and Minds

Applications now being accepted for Summer 2017

How can a computer learn to read an ancient musical score? What can methods
from signal processing and natural language analysis tell us about the
history of popular music? Can a computer system teach a person to better
use prosody (the musical pattern of speech) in order to become a more
effective public speaker? These are some of the questions that
undergraduate students will investigate this summer in our REU at the
University of Rochester.  Each student will be mentored by two or more
faculty members drawn from Computer Science, Electrical and Computer
Engineering, Brain and Cognitive Science, the program in Digital Media
Studies, and the Eastman School of Music.

Eligibility: The program is open to 1st, 2nd, or 3rd year full
time students at a college or university, who are *US citizens or permanent
residents*, and who will have completed two programming courses or have
equivalent experience by the start of the summer program.  Students do not
need to computer science majors. We encourage applications from students
attending colleges that lack opportunities for research, and from students
from communities underrepresented in computer science.
