Directions to get here and to the building

On Saturday, 19 February 2010, there will be an informal miniconference in applied mathematics and related areas. We are very excited about the success of this conference, and that we have made it to year 3! Clemson is happy to take the reigns on hosting this year, giving VT and John Burkardt (the conference Godfather) a break. Anyone willing to host for year 4? Please?

The conference is sponsored jointly by Clemson SIAM Student Chapter, by SIAM Southeast , by Clemson Mathematical Sciences Department.

In part, the conference is intended as a "practice session" for students, to give them a comfortable forum in which to present the results of their research, while getting advice and suggestions from their peers and mentors. This kind of oral presentation is a vital part of a graduate student's career. The talks presented at this conference will be developed further for presentation at job interviews and at conferences, such as the upcoming SIAM SEAS conference , to be held at UNC Charlotte over March 26-27.

The conference is also intended to be an opportunity for the beginning researchers to gain exposure for their own work, to get an idea of what others are working on, and to meet and to exchange ideas with others in their field of interest.

We do not have any funding to cover the travel or hotel expenses of the participants. If we did have "extra" money, we would likely instead spend the money on lunch items or snacks anyways.

If you have questions about this miniconference, please send a note to Leo Rebholz, rebholz at clemson . If you have complaints or criticisms, please neatly write them down on a piece of paper, then throw it away.

Here is a list of this year's participants.
