The camp program was originally designed by Ekaterina Taralova
(Computer Vision Group) in collaboration with
Dr. Sara Chavarria (College of Education)
and Dr. Kobus Barnard (Computer Vision Group) in 2008.
The camp relied heavily on collaboration with a number of groups at the
University of Arizona. The camp was lead by
the Computer Vision PHD student, Yekaterina Kharitonova,
and executed by an excellent team of mentors from the Computer Vision Group - Emily Hartley, Luca Del Pero, Gabriel Wilson,
and a new staff member, Vanessa Moralez.
During the camp,
Postdoctoral Research Associate
Matina Donaldson-Matasci discussed plant structure and adaptation to their environment.
Computer Science PHD student, Ernesto Brau, discussed computational modeling with the campers.
Kyle Simek, another Computer Science PHD student, provided a hands on probability tutorial.
The camp wouldn't have been possible without enormous contributions from the Computer Science
Administrative Services group,
Laboratory Staff and
the Academic Services group .
