Here are some questions answered so far:

* Funding: This is for a student or fresh grad (BS, MS, or PhD) and nominally runs ten weeks, but in the past, this has been easy to extend into the fall. I believe that the pay is comparable to other big companies, and it scales with education level.
* Features: The only one I explicitly know about is that we define local functions in classdef files [1], and jwe tells me this has even been fixed on master. I expect that this is just the tip of the iceberg, but I'm willing to throw in a summer's worth of time and money to find out. The code we're trying to run is GUI-less, but uses many classes and subclasses, and uses mex to run the actual code of interest.
* Open/closed source: Our codebase (touch-sensing algorithm library) is closed-source, but of course the Octave development would all go back upstream. If the intern gets our framework up and running in Octave before the end of the summer, they'd be free to choose between more Octave dev or to work on our touch algorithms. The corporate culture is strongly in the closed-source camp, but I'm trying to establish an example of how contributing to the open-source ecosystem demonstrably helps our bottom line.

If you're interested, please submit a resume via the job ad or ask in the emailing list (person in charge is Nickolas Fotopoulos).

I am happy to announce a new release of the geometry package[1]. Thanks a lot to the OF admins for helping out and pointing to all the problems in the package. Thanks also to Philip Nienhuis for his insistence on improving the polygon clipping functionality.

This release includes loads of new functions see the NEWS[2] file.

With this release geometry should be considered a fork of Matgeom[3], since we have functions that extend Matgeom. However the package still does not includes all basic Matgeom functionality. From now on the process of adding Matgheom functions will be much faster. In the past I tried to fix all functions documentation before adding them to the geometry package, but this was delaying the process too much. Now, functions that are tested in octave will be added almost without adaptation. I hope that over time, and thanks to user reports, documentation will be improved and functions will become more efficient (e.g. matlab codes tend to be loopy, especially since they have JIT compilation, which runs slowly in Octave).

OctConf 2017 was a great event!
Despite the frenzy we had to go through to get it in shape in the last 25 days, the hosts did an excellent job (thanks!) and everything went smoothly.

There was plenty of interesting discussions and we will try to share the link to slides and material asap.

In the last day of the conference we set the skeleton for the next OctConf 2018 [1]. The wiki will be updated from now on and we will let you know when the event is fully defined (let us know if you have suggestions). For now: It will take place in March 2018, and it will be at CERN again. Start making arrangements now!

See you!

Do not miss the last section, really nice!
Here's my talk at the CMU Robotics Institute Seminar Series last Friday. Topics covered are visual inertial state estimation, dense, semi-dense, sparse direct methods, active vision, and event based vision. I want to thank all my lab members, without whom this work would never have been possible!

Our article about fast approximation of hydrological models got published (I know, in Elsevillian, negotiations...)

Official CERN announcement (we need a logo for the conference, want to contribute one?)

Octave Conference 2017 at CERN, March 20-22

Dear Colleagues, dear Octave users and developers,

We are happy to announce the upcoming Octave Conference 2017 to be held at CERN [1], near Geneva, Switzerland, from March 20th until March 22nd. Octave [2] is a fundamental tool of analysis and research for hundreds of CERN scientists and, like CERN, promotes values of openness, cooperation, diversity, quality and commitment.

The three-day event will be an opportunity for sharing experiences, planning the future of Octave and promoting its use among the CERN scientific community and beyond. There will two open sessions in the CERN Main Auditorium, on Monday and Tuesday, showcasing Octave and some interesting and successful Octave stories.

We are working out the details of the programme, and the call for contributions and abstract is still open. You are all invited to submit an abstract and present your experience with Octave at the conference.

We are hopeful that the key members of the Octave development team will make it, both from oversea and from Europe. You can find more updated information on the programme in the CERN's OctConf webpage [3] and in the Octave Wiki page [4].

Two social events have been foreseen:
* A unique visit to CERN [5]
* A Fondue [6] dinner down-town Geneva

Please visit the official page of the conference [3] to register your attendance. Early registrations are preferable to help us on the logistics side.
Please contact us with recommendations and if you have any further ideas, recommendations or particular wishes.

We look forward to seeing you at OctConf 2017.
The local conference coordinators,

Andrea Latina
John Evans
Melissa Gaillard
