ECE Ph.D. student Aswin Sankaranarayanan, advised by Prof. Rama Chellappa, was chosen to participate in IBM's 2007 Watson Emerging Leaders in Multimedia Workshop. IBM selected a group of only eight students for the event from a large group of high quality nominations.

The event will take place on October 11-12, 2007 at IBM's T. J. Watson Research Center in Hawthorne, NY. It will consist of research presentations, an interactive group discussion, one-on-one meetings between students and IBM researchers, and demos about IBM Multimedia Research. IBM will also reimburse expenses for the students' travel and accommodations.

Sankaranarayanan's research is primarily aimed at problems in computer vision and pattern recognition, including visual tracking and particle filtering.
