SGI Applications Due

Tuesday, February 15
12:00 am - 12:00 am

The Summer Geometry Initiative (SGI) is a six-week paid summer research program introducing undergraduate and graduate students to the field of geometry processing.  Geometry processing has a long history of breakthrough developments that have guided design of 3D tools for computer vision, additive manufacturing, scientific computing, and other disciplines. Algorithms for geometry processing combine ideas from  disciplines including differential geometry, topology, physical simulation, statistics, and optimization.

    In the first week of SGI, participants will attend hands-on tutorials introducing the theory and practice of geometry processing. During the remaining weeks, participants will work in teams on research projects led by faculty and research scientists in this discipline, while attending talks and other sessions led by visiting researchers.  SGI will be held remotely (online) in 2022, but participants are expected to be engaged full-time. Check out this website to see projects and reports by our SGI 2021 Fellows:

    Undergraduates and master’s level students with background in computer science, mathematics, or other related disciplines are encouraged to apply.  SGI is dedicated to the inclusion of individuals of all backgrounds at all levels of geometry processing research. We strongly encourage women and students from underrepresented and underserved groups to apply. No prior research experience or coursework in geometry processing is necessary to participate. Current PhD students and professionals are not qualified to apply.

    We will release a separate call for mentors, TAs, and other volunteers.

    NB: US law prevents MIT and SGI from engaging with persons ordinarily resident in certain comprehensively sanctioned countries and with parties blocked by the US Treasury Department. Pending tax considerations associated to the honoraria, all other international students qualify for participation and are invited to apply.
