Professor Costa,
I'm quite sure you are perfect fo the job!
Given your experience and the fact that you belong to a Computer Science Department, you fulfil all the required features from our PhD commitee. After all, it is not that easy to find a person who is a professor in computer scince, expert in signwriting, and with knowledge of image processing.

Anyway, for your convenience, Fabrizio will send you the abstract of his dissertation as soon as possible, so that you can better evaluate if you are interested in revising it (this will require to prepare a true review document to send to our PhD director).

Thanks again for your support!

Maria

P.S. - In order not to bore the whole list, if you prefer we can continue communicating through our academic email. What do you think?

Hi!

I'm not sure I can help, but I'm willing to at least give a look at
the dissertation or its abstract.

> I would also suggest Dr. Antonio Carlos da Rocha Costa, Professor of Computer Sciences, from Brazil. It is because of Antonio Carlos, that SignWriting is in Brazil today. He contacted me in 1996, after finding SignWriting on the internet, and came to visit me here in my home in 1996. Dr. Rocha Costa was instrumental in spreading SignWriting in Brazil because his computer sciences students developed software related to writing sign languages, and he himself was the original developer of SWML and the SWEdit Program, which was and is used widely in Brazil and also influential in the world of software. Antonio Carlos was the advisor to Dr. Marianne Stumpf’s dissertation in Deaf Education research, which through Dr. Stumpf, spread SignWriting in the Deaf Community in Brazil. The SignWriting Symposium, with its 16 presenters from Brazil, is a testament to Dr. Rocha Costa’s work…I hope he can be of help to your computer science work, Fabrizio and Maria...
