For Students: Participating in CAMCOS

The CAMCOS Application Process

Updated, November 2013: In the Spring 2014, we will run two CAMCOS projects: one sponsored by the IBM Almaden Research Center on factor screening and stochastic kriging and supervised by Professor Martina Bremer; and the other sponsored by NASA Ames Research Center on applications of discrete Morse theory to galaxy distributions and supervised by Professor Slobodan Simić. In your application please indicate the project you are applying for (IBM or NASA).

Applicants: San José State students who want to be part of a CAMCOS team can do so by taking Math 203. However, registration for Math 203 is by application only. More precisely, to apply for Math 203 in Spring 2014:

  1. Download the application form. Students who have previously taken Math 203 and wish to continue with the same faculty supervisor need not reapply.

  2. Submit the application form, either by e-mail (strongly preferred) or by campus mail.

  3. Since you are not guaranteed to get into Math 203, in the semester that you want to take Math 203, register for classes as if you were not taking Math 203, but put a class into your schedule that you can drop if you do get into Math 203.

  4. If you are chosen for a team, you will be notified directly, most likely by e-mail. Add codes will be given out by the faculty supervisor at the first or second class meeting.
