We are grateful for the support we've received from the following organizations.

  • In August 2020, Prof. Zanibbi was a member of the MMLI project, funded as one of the first NSF-sponsored AI Centers.
  • In December 2017, the National Science Foundation (USA) awarded a grant to Prof. Zanibbi, Anurag Agarwal (RIT), Douglas Oard (Univ. Maryland, College Park), and Lee Giles (Penn State) in support of research into extracting text-math relationships and then using these to produce math-aware search engines. The grant also supports integration with the CiteSeerX technical paper database.
  • The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation has funded a proposal by Prof. Zanibbi and C. Lee Giles (Penn State) to integrate math-aware search into the CiteSeerX platform.
  • The French Ministy of Higher Education and Research has provided a grant to support a PhD student at INSA Rennes (France) co-advised by Betrand Couasnon, Yann Ricquebourg, and Prof. Zanibbi (2016-2019). The project is exploring the interaction between deep learning and syntactic pattern recognition techniques in document recognition tasks.
  • The National Institute of Informatics, Japan, which funded Prof. Zanibbi's travel to attend the NTCIR-12 conference in Tokyo (2016).
  • CICM 2015, which funded Prof. Zanibbi's trip to give a keynote speech at the conference.
  • University of Waterloo, Canada, through a Visiting Professorship held by Prof. Zanibbi in Fall 2014.
  • Universit√© de Nantes, France, through a Visiting Professorship held by Prof. Zanibbi in June 2012, and June-July 2014.
  • NSF HCC Grant (held with Stephanie Ludi, Roger Gaborski and Anurag Agarwal, 2012-2017), to develop an iPad-based system to assist students with low vision taking math courses.
  • Google corporation, through a Google Research Awards Grant, for work with Prof. Charles Bigelow on collecting and analyzing font metrics in historical books (2011-2012)
  • The National Science Foundation (NSF), through an IIS/III grant for work in math recognition and retrieval (2010-2015), and associated NSF REU supplements (Summers 2011-2013)
  • RIT Carlson Center for Imaging Science (summer support for Video CAPTCHA research, 2010, 2011)
  • Xerox Corporation (through a University Affairs Committee Grant held with Bill Stumbo, Xerox Research Center Webster, 2007-2009)
  • The Center for Electronic Imaging Systems (CEIS/NYSTAR), through a CAT-EIS grant (2008-2009).
  • The B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences (FEAD Grant, 2007)
  • Walter Wolf (who donated a Tablet PC)
