XX Latin American Contest of Master Thesis (CLTM-2013)

The XX Latin American Contest of Master Thesis (CLTM) is an anual event that is realized as part of CLEI 2013. The objective is to promote and transmit the work of Latin American students who have recently completed their Master Thesis in Computation.

Graduated students in master programs in Latin American Universities during the period, April 1st, 2012 up to March 31th, 2013 may participate in the contest. The work submitted must be individual (can not be done by a group of students).

To participate in the contest, a summary of the thesis should be submitted. A Committee will select the three best theses.

To receive the award, a oral presentation of winning theses must be done at CLEI 2013. The summary of each winning thesis will be published in the proceedings of the XXXIX Latin American conference on computation (CLEI 2013), to be held in Venezuela, 7 – 11 October 2013.

Results of the Contest

We are pleased to announce the three winning master thesis of CLTM-2013. The selection was hard due to the large number of dissertations of very good academic quality that were sent, and their thematic variety that makes difficult the comparison between works in different areas of knowledge. It is the desire of the Program Committee that all students, regardless of having or not received an award, continue doing good work and have the best of success in their academic or professional career.

The three winning masters thesis are:

  • FIRST PRIZE: Ernesto Copello (Universidad ORT Uruguay, Uruguay) “Inferencia de Tipos de Sesión”
  • SECOND PRIZE: Leissi Margarita Castañeda León (Universidade de Sao Paulo, Brazil) “Detecção de objetos em vídeos usando misturas de modelos baseados em partes deformáveis obtidas de a um conjunto de imagens”
  • THIRD PRIZE: Gustavo Alkmim (Universidade Estadual de Campinas, Brazil) “Mapeamento de Redes Virtuais em Substratos de Rede”

For CLTM-2013, we received 48 masters thesis from 10 different countries (Argentina: 2, Brazil: 21, Chile: 3, Colombia: 2, Cuba: 12, Mexico: 1, Paraguay: 1, Peru: 1, Uruguay: 2, Venezuela: 3)
