Students with interests in a special focus or project area will have their applications reviewed by the special project committee for that special focus or project. The committee chooses those to whom offers will be made, allocates funds for the visit, after being given an annual budget by the Director, and arranges that each graduate student visit funded through its action will have a suitable mentor.

Computing Equipment Committee

The Computing Equipment Committee reviews DIMACS computing (and other) equipment, recomends priorities for future equipment purchases, advises the Director about equipment purchases, assists with equipment purchase proposals, and advises the Director and Executive Committee on policy about access to equipment and about staffing issues related to equipment.

Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Committee

The REU Committee consists of all mentors in the REU program and other individuals who are appointed by the Director. The Committee selects the students who participate in the REU program, making sure each such student has a mentor, and organizes the running of that program.
