Throughout history great mathematics has been conducted in collaboration at institutions where mathematicians and scientists came together at seminars and workshops to exchange their developing ideas. In our age of international travel and communication on the internet, the opportunities to collaborate have expanded exponentially. In this panel we will discuss issues that arise in mathematical collaborations, including questions such as how to start and maintain a successful collaboration, how collaborative efforts can build a research program and a career, how to engage students in collaborative research, and how to obtain funding for collaboration. Panelists will share their experience at research institutions, undergraduate institutions and in industry.
Wednesday, January 4, 2012, 2:15 pm - 3:40 pm.
