Institute of Theoretical Computer Science and Communications (ITCSC) was established in July 2007 to promote and support innovative and cutting-edge research in theoretical computer and communication sciences.
The Institute focuses a number of research themes: analytic methods for non-convex optimization, complexity of convex optimization, and information theoretic complexity of communication.
2018 ITCSC Summer Research Program at The Chinese University of Hong Kong
The Institute of Theoretical Computer Science and Communications (ITCSC) is organizing a Summer Research Program from July 9, 2018 to August 24, 2018.
The purpose of this summer research program is to bring together interested undergraduate students majoring in computer science, communications, mathematics, or related areas, from all over Asia and introduce them to research problems of interest to the various researchers of the institute. The students are then expected to work together (along with mentors) to try and solve a few of these problems, thus getting a first-hand research experience.
Apart from a semi-structured first week of introduction to various research areas and problems, the summer research program will also feature regular lectures, meetings, and a final presentation as well as a report.
*** Undergraduate students of computer science, electrical engineering, and related areas from universities across Asia are welcome to apply. ***
Invitations will be sent to a selected number of students based on the quality of the applications and budgetary considerations. Should you be invited, ITCSC will provide a lump-sum amount that would normally cover your airfare and local expenses.
Please fill out the following form until 5 February 2018: https://cloud.itsc.cuhk.edu.hk/webform/view.php?id=4617095
We will inform successful applicants in mid to late February 2018.
Inquiries should be sent to Prof. Pascal Vontobel via firstname.lastname@example.org.
