Graduate Student Focus on Diversity Workshop

This one-day workshop is an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to listen to technical talks given by fellow underrepresented minority graduate students.

The graduate student presentations are technical presentations in the students' areas of research.

The workshop organizers and SIAM thank the Department of Energy, Lucent Technologies, National Security Agency, and Boeing Company for their support in conducting this workshop.
