Abstract:

This program, entitled Nurturing ECSU Research Talent in Parallel Processing and Computer Visualization focuses on undergraduate education and undergraduate research experiences in computer science. Nurturing these young researchers will be our primary concern. Highest priority will be given to providing them with the guidance and skills to insure their entrance and success in graduate school. Further, each student in our program will learn the fundamentals of scientific research as they conduct investigations in parallel processing and computer visualization. Student development activities will include the following a Recruitment of 20 high ability minority students b Providing a summer program for recruited students c Providing research experiences in computer visualization and parallel processing d Providing a mentor, graduate school counseling and GRE preparation e Providing financial support for students in the form of research scholarships and f Providing funds for student travel. We are also proposing to strengthen the infrastructure of the Mathematics and Computer Science Department of ECSU. Activities proposed are a Enhancement of current computer graphics and operating systems courses b Development of two new courses in parallel processing and computer visualization PPCV c Acquisition of computer equipment appropriate to support of PPCV research d Establishing a visiting lecture series in computer science and e Hiring a UNIX network manager. This project will build on the lessons learned and resources acquired during the 1991-93 ONR pilot program at ECSU.
