Welcome to new lab members

This fall we are welcoming two new students to our group:  Mihee Lee and Yuting Wang.   Mihee joins us from R&D at Samsung, where she worked after completing her BS in Math Ewha Woman’s University, Korea.  Yuting completed her MS at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany and was also a visiting student at CMU.

Please join me in welcoming Mihee and  Yuting to Rutgers and Seqam Lab.

Special Permissions / Overrides for Fall 17 Courses

Many students have contacted me asking about Special Permissions or  Prerequisite Overrides for 206 & 535 courses for Fall 2017.  As of now, Thursday, August 31, the status is as follows:  I am told that our administrative staff is still processing requests.  I have yet to receive any lists of students who submitted their requests.

Once I have more information, I will post it here.

Update (9/5/2017):  This afternoon I finally received access to SPN request lists.  I will be processing those requests in the next few days.

CVPR 2017 – Wrap Up

It was quite exciting to attend the largest CVPR ever – almost 5000 attendees.  Having it in a beautiful location made it even more appealing.

Thanks to my students and colleagues who made the work we presented at CVPR possible.
