    Hi!
    I'm a freshman at IIT,Kanpur and wish to intern/work on a research project this summer.I'm a metallurgical engineering major but want to work on something related to computer vision(Real time object modelling,maybe),or swarm robotics,and/or neural networks this summer.I've learnt about these things since high school(by learnt I mean books,video lectures and lots of IEEE papers).I've read about programs at Carnegie Mellon,Willow garage,etc.How should I go about this?Should I be finding out professors in universities and emailing them?Or should I be searching for programs?Also,what exactly does a professor want to hear to even consider my application for research/internship(whether I should be emailing only people who are involved in such programs)?
    thanks
    dv
