Project News

Project Summary

Computing for Structure is an NSF Funded Research Experience for Undergraduates, created and directed by the University of Miami Department of Computer Science and Center for Computational Science.

The P.I. for the REU is Prof. Rosenberg of the Computer Science Department, but the real work went to the many mentors, listed as co-authors of the student presentations. These mentors were drawn from across the university, and volunteered to mentor the participants.
