Faculty/Student Research Paper Wins International Award

Camarillo, Calif.– A paper authored by CSU Channel Islands (CI) Associate Professor of Mathematics Kathryn Leonard and five of her undergraduate students won the “Best Paper” award at the 13th International Conference on Computational Science and Its Applications (ICCSA 2013) in Vietnam. The paper, titled “Minimal Geometric Representation and Strawberry Stem Detection,” beat out 14 other nominees for the top award in the annual conference, held June 24-27 in Ho Chi Minh City.

Their paper is based on a two-year CI undergraduate research project led by Leonard and funded by a National Science Foundation CAREER grant that Leonard obtained in 2010. The NSF grant supports the work of faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of the two.
