Upcoming Events

We would like to announce a topical workshop, Empowering a Diverse Computational Mathematics Research Community, to be held at the Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) at Brown University during July 22 – August 2, 2024. The application is now open, and more information can be found from:  https://icerm.brown.edu/topical_workshops/tw-24-edmc/

The goal of this two-week research and professional development workshop is to support the retention and success of junior and mid-career computational mathematicians who are from groups that are underrepresented in the field. Participants will forge strong collaborations in mentored research groups and engage in professional development via no-lead learning communities. The larger goal of the workshop is to form a positive, diverse community of researchers who are committed to supporting each other’s professional and scholarly growth.

In research teams led by experienced mentors, participants will be introduced to cutting-edge opportunities in numerical analysis and scientific computing, and will actively work on and contribute to a research project with their team. The supportive formal and informal mentoring will help participants grow their scientific and collaborative skills. In addition, the collaborative learning communities will provide the participants with a forum for personal and professional growth in their self-identified areas of need and will deliver professional and leadership development in a small group setting. The workshop will also include panels and discussions on a range of issues including addressing intersectional issues involving gender, race, and LGBTQ+ status in the profession.

This research collaborative effort is run in collaboration with SIAM which will provide support for sustained interaction and collaboration even beyond the two-week workshop.
