NSF-Supported Summer Research for Undergraduates
The Center for Language and Speech Processing at the Johns Hopkins University is seeking outstanding members of the current junior class to join a summer research workshop on language engineering from June 11 to August 7, 2012.
The 8-week workshop provides an intense intellectual environment. Undergraduates work closely alongside more senior researchers as part of a multi-university research team, which has been assembled for the summer to attack some problem of current interest. The teams and topics for summer 2012 are described here:
We hope that this stimulating and selective experience will encourage students to pursue graduate study in human language technology, as it has been doing for many years.
The summer workshop provides:
* An opportunity to explore an exciting new area of research
* A two-week tutorial on current speech and language technology
* Mentoring by an experienced researcher
* Participation in project planning activities
* Use of a computing cluster and personal workstation
* A $5,000 stipend and $2,520 towards per diem expenses
* Private furnished accommodation for the duration of the workshop
* Travel expenses to and from the workshop venue
