Claremont Colleges Math-in-Industry Workshop 2009

 

July 24 - 26, 2009: Student mini-Camp
July 27 - 31, 2009: Workshop

 

 

 

The Claremont Colleges’ Applied Mathematics group presents a workshop for industrial math problems.

During the Industrial Workshop, six to eight problems will be presented by the industrial sponsors on Monday morning, July 27, 2009. The invited audience will consist of thirty graduate and undergraduate students plus thirty faculty, from various universities. They will separate into ‘study groups’ working in classrooms (at Harvey Mudd College) until Friday, July 31,2009. On Friday, there will be a reporting session and close of proceedings. Subsequently there will be a final written report.

GRADUATE STUDENT MODELING Mini-CAMP: Preceding the workshop described above there will be a modeling camp supervised by invited faculty involving a set of separate Applied Math problems. This camp will run Fri-Sun, July 24-26, 2009. Invited students are expected to participate in the camp and in the workshop.

Students will be housed in dorms at HMC. Participating faculty will be housed at a local hotel. Lodging, travel and local meals may be paid for by an anticipated NSF grant. Submit your application via our online registration or via email to ccms@claremont.edu.

The workshop will be run by Dr. Lisette de Pillis, Math Chair at Harvey Mudd College, and Dr. Ellis Cumberbatch, Program Director of Joint Ph.D. Program in Engineering and Industrial Applied Mathematics, Claremont Graduate University. For more information, please contact Ellis Cumberbatch at (909)607-3369 or ellis.cumberbatch@cgu.edu, or Cathi Comras at ccms@claremont.edu.

Note: The Monday session starts in the Beckman Auditorium, which is downstairs from HMC
math in the Olin building, Dartmouth Ave.  Olin is at the west of the Harvey Mudd campus.  See HMC map.
