MSF invites young minds
Encouraged by the resounding success of IAYM-2009 involving over 70 participants, Mathematical Sciences Foundation (MSF) is once again organising a Summer Internship Programme Inviting all young minds (IAYM) 2010 for specially selected and highly talented students of mathematics, computer science and engineering, drawn from schools and colleges across India.
The programme duration is from June1 to 29, 2010. The programme venue is The Air Force School, Subroto Park, New Delhi, where arrangements for the stay of 30 students from outside Delhi have also been made in the school hostel. Out of a total 1,600 applications received, only 70 have been selected after a very stringent selection procedure. Most of the selected students had secured over 95% in their Board examinations, and had expressed their intense desire to learn and apply their mathematical knowledge and skills to the proposed projects involving real life situations.
 
MSF’s IAYM Programme has attracted the attention of the media, and has been largely the most effective motivating factor for the participants to join the Programme. During the initial phase of the programme, the participants will be imparted training on important computer software to enable them to apply their recently acquired skills in working and preparing their respective projects under the guidance of distinguished mathematicians and Research Associates of the MSF. On successful completion of the internship programme, each participant will also be given a stipend and reimbursement of their travelling expenses.
Salient Features
        The activity is partially sponsored by the Department of Science and Technology (GOI) and by NIIT Ltd.
        60 highly motivated students from different parts of India have been selected from among more than 1,500 applicants.
 
The students will work on the following projects:
        Face Recognition: Creating the software using ingenious methods
        Computer Security: Viruses and antidotes. Creating the strategies
        Mathematical Models in Finance: Simulating the market with signal processing
        Encryption: Creating new methods using basic ideas and devising algorithms
