Summer student program

In 2005, CSACS initiated a new program which is to support 4 to 7 undergraduate summer students (~ $1K per student) who will work on joint research projects between Centre members. The goals of the program are to expose undergraduate research students to CSACS research as well as to promote contacts between research groups. Interuniversity projects are encouraged.
