Mason Modeling Days 2017

Interdisciplinary Mathematics as a Tool for Discovery

The Department of Mathematical Sciences of George Mason University will hold a 4-day Mason Modeling Days workshop, to be held June 28-July 1, 2017 at Key Bridge Marriott hotel in Rosslyn, VA. The hotel website is here

The aim of the workshop is to get together groups of undergraduate, graduate students and faculty from different universities around the country to work on real-life applied mathematics problems arising in other disciplines. Participants will be engaged in intensive brainstorming sessions and present their findings in a form of a written report and an oral presentation during the last day of the workshop. Local expenses including housing and per diem will be covered and generous travel allowance is going to be available for funded participants.

Interested undergraduate, graduate students and postdocs should fill out the application form and submit a statement of interest. For faculty participants, application form is sufficient. Applications received by April 24 will be given priority.

Questions about the program should be addressed to Maria Emelianenko at memelian AT gmu.edu. 

Program is funded in part by the National Science Foundation DMS grant #1056821 and the College of Science of George Mason University.
