Yes, you are.

I am not very active on this forum any longer. Most PM's will not receive a response.

(07-29-2011 02:40 AM)taro_curly Wrote:  Over the years, we have kept telling students who want to make it to the top universities for their MS/PhD that they need to get research experience. For the majority of students in the second tier of colleges in India, this is far easier said than done. Even if they were motivated enough to try things for themselves, there are few people to guide them. Research papers aren't necessarily the best way to get started since they aren't intended for newcomers to the field. And professors at the top Indian institutes often look for people who already have some experience - which leads to an unfortunate chicken and egg situation.

To try and mitigate this problem, we are piloting a new programme here on Edulix: EduMentoring. This initiative is the brainchild of Edulix user, @[Pythea] (it was given its name by @[Edulix_Editor]).

In EduMentoring, graduate students volunteers in various universities abroad (mentors) will guide undergraduate students (mentees) on a project. The project may be offered by the mentors or proposed by the mentees (we strongly recommend the latter). The project could be a research problem, reproducing results reported in the literature, a variation of published work, a literature survey, or anything else of mutual interest to both mentors and mentees.

The goal of this programme is to give undergraduate students a taste of research as well as to introduce them to the scientific literature. Depending on the project chosen and the amount of effort put into it by all parties, there is the possibility of the work being publishable.

Mentees will be chosen by the mentors based on mutual research interests and expertise possibly after some sort of selection process. Mentors and mentees will decide on a set of deliverables as well as the commitment each will make; for instance, regular meetings via Skype to discuss progress.

As a pilot, there are a few projects that the mentors have made available that they are willing to supervise. You can read the descriptions in the Academia forum.

If you have any projects in mind that you would like someone to mentor, please feel free to post a brief description in the Academia forum along with the broad area (CS, EE etc.) and the sub-area that it is related to (e.g. Signal processing, AI, networks, HCI). If there is a mentor who is willing to guide you, they will contact you.

These are early days for EduMentoring and we are still soliciting volunteers to mentor projects. The more enthusiasm there is from the mentees, the stronger the case we can make while asking mentors to sign up for and commit time to this programme. Remember also that the mentors are also putting time and effort into this: if you stop showing interest in this, they will too.

Thanks and here's hoping that we can make EduMentoring a success.


Right now, we have a few projects offered by mentors in the following areas:

We have mentors who are willing to guide projects in their area of expertise:

@[GravityEyelids]: Building Energy Performance, Computational Photography, Urban Acoustics, Fluid Interfaces and Computer Graphics (does not include computer animation or game design).

@[Ancalagon The Black]: Social Network Analysis, collaboration/CSCW

@[praxair1]: Power System projects related to Application of Neural Networks and Smart Grids.

@[Pythea]: AI

@[taro_curly] : HPC, compilers.

If any of the mentors have a project to offer, they will post it in the Academia forum. I shall also update this thread with any new projects that are offered.

As usual, if you have any questions, go right ahead and ask.


Hi,
I am interested in Research and projects in Radar Systems/Signal Processing/Software Defined Radio(SDR).

If there is any Mentor in these fields then please contact me.

Thank You

Ask someone like Evilweasel or camphor.

1) Please mention as many details as possible about your academics, research and work-ex, in terms of projects worked on, technologies used, roles/responsibilities handled, papers published/presented, awards/honors obtained, etc. All those have to be put in the misc details section of your UniSearch profile if you expect any help on Edulix.

2) Please take some time out to read this and this thread in their entirety. PLEASE do that before asking questions about universities from a comparison perspective, or jobs, or coursework, or H-1B visas, or "placements", irrespective of which univ/department/program/major you're applying to.

Hello Seniors,

This is indeed a great initiative. I have worked on Gesture Recognition in 3D space using Hidden Markov Models as my final year project.

I wish to continue work on it and get a paper out of it.

Can you help me?

regards
shahensha

Hi All,

It has been 2 semesters since we began this initiative, and I wanted to touch base with everyone. I think this is an opportunity to share our experiences, pitfall, and to decide if this is something that is feasible and should be organized on a bigger scale.

It has been a great experience for me. I had the opportunity to work with some very spirited, smart and dedicated students from VNIT, Pune. There were glitches with time management and planning for meetings, but nothing that could not be sorted out. A great deal of communication took place over emails. The project undertaken was submitted as the final year thesis at the institution and currently, we are working on a research paper.

Personally, I want to continue this. It has been very satisfying, and I want to continue spending time talking to and advising students.

I think I had a great time at the very outset. However, the project was not submitted to a conference or appropriate publication venue because of some personal issues of the mentee.

I am always open to collaborating more with students.
