GSMMC 2009: Graduate Student Mathematical Modeling CampMarch 1, 2009
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
June 9–12, 2009
The Department of Mathematical Sciences at RPI is pleased to announce the sixth annual GSMM Camp. The camp is a four-day informal workshop in which graduate students work in teams on problems brought by invited faculty mentors. The problems, inspired by real problems that arise in industrial applications, span a wide range of mathematics and are designed to promote problem-solving skills while the team approach is designed to promote scientific communication.
Graduate students at all levels are invited to participate. General information and an online application form can be found at http://www.math.rpi.edu/GSMMCamp/. Financial support for travel and local accommodations is available. The application deadline is April 17, 2009.
Graduate students attending the GSMM Camp are also invited to participate in the Mathematical Problems in Industry Workshop, to be held at the University of Delaware during the week following the camp. For further information about MPI 2009, applicants can visit http://www.math.udel.edu/MPI/.
