The Department of Computer Science and Creative Media Industries Institute at Georgia State University host the NSF REU Site: 8-week Summer Research for Undergraduates in Immersive Media Computing for 10 students.

Each REU participant will work with faculty advisors, industry advisors, graduate student mentors, and other undergraduate students to carry out a research project in areas such as VR/AR, game development, 360-degree video, image processing, video streaming, image analysis, computer vision, GPU, and parallel computing, etc. The REU students will have access to state-of-the-art VR/AR lab, 4DViews volumetric capture lab, etc. Tutorials, research talks, and programming workshops will be held to guide the students. The REU students will have the opportunity to submit and present their work at academic conferences. We particularly encourage underrepresented students (such as minorities and women) to apply.

Atlanta is a modern city with rich traditions. Major at-tractions include World of Coca-Cola, Georgia Aquarium, Centennial Olympic Park, Center for Civil and Human Rights, CNN, Mercedes Benz Stadium, College Football Hall of Fame, Atlanta Botanical Garden, etc.

We hope to welcome REU students in person to the GSU downtown campus; this depends on the course of the coronavirus pandemic.
