A record 91 applicants sought positions in the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program that is being conducted this summer at the Northeast Parallel Architectures Center (NPAC) at Syracuse University. Twelve students are participating in the 10-week program, which is funded by the National Science Foundation, NPAC, and Syracuse University academic units. Participants in this year's program attend schools throughout the country, including the University of San Diego, Texas A&M University, Rice University, St. Michael's College, Oberlin College, St. Bonaventure College, Davidson College, Bryn Mawr College, City College of New York, and Syracuse University. Academic majors of the participants include mathematics, physics, computer science, engineering, and communications.

NPAC has conducted an REU program in high-performance computing each summer since 1991. The program includes two main components: group training in high-performance computing technologies and an individual research project. The two-week training phase of the program includes lectures on numerical methods, computer architecture, and programming techniques. Individual student projects typically include topics in computational physics, computational fluid dynamics, multimedia applications, image processing, symbolic logic, and optimization techniques. As part of their research experiences, participants prepare written research proposals, give oral proposal presentations, prepare posters describing their projects, prepare final written reports, and give final oral presentations. Further information concerning the NPAC REU program is available interactively via Mosaic ( http://www.npac.syr.edu). From the NPAC home page, select "Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program," which provides hypertext links to the final papers produced by last year's participants and project descriptions maintained by this year's group.
