Subject: Research Experiences for Undergraduates - Texas Tech University
Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)
Declarative Programming and Its Applications
May 31, 2015 to August 8, 2015
About the Program
This REU site aims to inspire and prepare a group of undergraduate students
for a career as a researcher or
engineer in the computing arena or an area where computing is critical.
If you have a passion for understanding computer science better and/or in
applying computing to solve
problems that could have a great impact on our society, this program may be
right for you.
In addition to learning state of the art declarative programming — which is
simple and easy to use —
participants will have many opportunities to apply declarative programming to
solve challenging problems.
These problems come from application areas that are of potentially great
societal impact and include
Cybersecurity, Energy, Healthcare, Intelligent Agents, and Space Exploration.
Participants will also have the
opportunity to conduct research on making declarative programming systems
more powerful at both the
language and reasoning level.
The program will foster close interaction between experienced mentors and the
participants. There will also be opportunities to visit well
known labs at Texas Tech, local hospitals, a NASA-sponsored research lab, and
companies in the areas of Cybersecurity, Energy, Healthcare
and Space Exploration.
Who Can Apply?
Current undergraduate students and high school students who have been
accepted at an undergraduate institution,
and who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
A generous stipend of $4500 for attending the program.
An allowance of up to $1100 to offset travel cost to the REU site and to the
Free on campus housing and meal allowance.
