Modern Math Workshop 2019 - At SACNAS 2019

Logo for Modern Math Workshop
Categories: Workshop

Date: 10/30/2019 - 10/31/2019

Location: Honolulu Hawaii

As part of the Mathematical Sciences Collaborative Diversity Initiatives, six mathematics institutes are pleased to host their annual SACNAS pre-conference event, the 2019 Modern Math Workshop (MMW). The Modern Math Workshop is designed to encourage undergraduates from underrepresented minority groups to pursue careers in the mathematical sciences, and to build research and networking opportunities among undergraduates, graduate students and recent PhDs.

The workshop includes two mini-courses aimed at undergraduates, research sessions aimed at graduate students and recent PhDs, a panel addressing professional issues of interest to both, a reception open to all participants, and a Q&A with NSF Math Institute representatives.

The MMW is part of the SACNAS National Conference and begins with registration at noon on Wednesday, October 30 and ends at noon on Thursday, October 31.

2019 Mini Courses Dr. Wilfrid Gangbo Professor of Mathematics, UCLA An Introduction to Optimal Mass Transportation

Dr. Anastasia Chavez NSF Postdoctoral Fellow in Mathematics, University of California, Davis An Introduction to Matroid Theory

Funding Recipients of SACNAS travel scholarships will be eligible to receive one additional night of lodging support through the Mondern Math Workshop. Those who do not receive funding from SACNAS are eligible to receive full support for travel and lodging (double-occupancy) and partial reimbursement of SACNAS registration fees. The deadline to apply for funding through the MMW is July 8, 2019.
