Research Internships in Science and Engineering Program
Graduate Student Summer Internship Opportunities
INTEL- India and HP-India
Administered by ORAU
The Research Internship in Science and Engineering (RISE) is limited to
the top U.S. students in a broad array of science and engineering
disciplines. Each internship is from 3-6 months and all selected
participants will receive housing (or housing allowance), roundtrip
transportation to India, and monthly stipend. Eligibility is limited to
US Citizens who are graduate students in science, technology,
engineering or medical disciplines.
Twelve specific projects are listed below for HP-India and Intel-India.
Students interested in the opportunities below should submit an
application by March 27, 2009. Visit our website
<http://rise.orau.org>http://rise.orau.org for application and contact
information. (Applications will also be accepted for other areas of
research until the deadline.)

· 3-D hand pose estimation for gesture recognition: Strong
background in computer vision, image analysis and human-computer
interaction is required.
· A Type System based on Semantic Web: Background in Programming
Language design is essential. Exposure to Lambda Calculus, Type Systems
required. Knowledge of logic programming and semantic web desirable.
· Conversational multimodal interfaces: Background in building
dialog based/conversational interfaces for multimodal systems required.
· Dynamic Network Analysis for Web Change analysis and modeling:
Knowledge of web mining, Graph algorithms is essential. Exposure to
formal models, Dynamic Network Analysis will be an added advantage
· Embedded P2P workflow engine: Good knowledge of distributed
systems, databases, embedded system and related topics. Good analytical
skills and fluent programming ability in C++/Java are required.
Background in middleware and web services would be ideal.
· Gaze tracking: Background in image processing, computer
vision, pattern recognition etc. essential. Experience in building gaze
tracking systems would be a plus
· Human computer information retrieval: Exposure to one of the
following topics desirable - Relevance feedback, user intent
determination/user profiling, faceted search, information visualization
· Print and scan resilient semi supervised document clustering:
Image processing, pattern recognition and machine learning, C/C++,
MATLAB, pursuing Masters or higher degrees in Electrical Engineering or
· Print-scan channel modeling and detection: Strong base in
digital communications, digital signal processing, Fourier transforms
and related topics. Good mathematical skills and fluent programming
ability in MATLAB/C are essential. Background in information and coding
theory would be ideal.
· User Action Understanding: Exposure to sequence mining.
Frequent pattern mining and related technologies, particularly in the
context of web. Knowledge of some tools and techniques in Cognitive User
Modeling will be of great advantage.
The Indo-U.S. Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF) and Oak Ridge
Associated Universities (ORAU) manage the RISE program. RISE provides
opportunities for American graduate students to conduct research in
India and for American institutions to host Indian graduate students and
faculty in the U.S.
