This workshop is held in conjunction with the 2000 SIAM Annual Meeting (July 10-14, 2000), Westin Rio Mar Beach Resort and Country Club, Rio Grande, Puerto Rico.
The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) is holding a workshop from Sunday evening through mid-day Tuesday, July 9 - 11, 2000. AWM and SIAM welcomes your participation.
The sessions in this workshop focus on showcasing the research of women graduate students and recent Ph.D. mathematicians and helping individuals to prepare for careers in the mathematical sciences. Our first session is a minisymposium which focuses on career planning and experiences. The workshop also has two research minisymposia presented by recent Ph.D. mathematicians and a poster session presented by graduate students. In addition, starting off our events on Sunday evening will be a dinner and discussion groups.
There is NO registration fee for this AWM workshop. The minisymposia and poster session are open to all SIAM meeting attendees. Pre-registration for the AWM dinner is required. Tickets on-site will be very limited. Individuals can inquire about dinner ticket availability by contacting the AWM Office, 4114 Computer & Space Sciences Bldg., University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742-2461; phone 301-405-7892 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For further information on the workshop, contact the workshop chairperson, Suzanne Lenhart (email@example.com) or Dawn Wheeler at AWM Office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
AWM is grateful to SIAM and their Meetings Department for all their efforts on behalf of the workshop and all AWM activities. AWM also wishes to thank all the AWM members who volunteered their time and expertise for these activities. A special thank you is extended to Professor Suzanne M. Lenhart (University of Tennessee, Knoxville; email@example.com) who kindly served as the 2000 Workshop Chairperson. AWM also wishes to express its gratitude to the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) for support of the AWM workshop.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED - Volunteers are needed to be "mentors" at the AWM Workshop (July 9-11, 2000) held in conjunction with the SIAM meeting at the Westin Rio Mar Beach Resort (July 10-14, 2000). Mentors are matched with a recent Ph.D. who is giving a talk in the workshop. Mentors should attend the talk of their assigned mentee and give some constructive advice about the talk. If possible, the mentor should attend the AWM dinner to get introduced to the mentee or arrange to talk with the mentee at some other time. Volunteers are also needed to participate in a "discussion group" session on Sunday evening, July 9 following the AWM Dinner. Career advice and situations will be discussed at the session. If interested, volunteers should contact Suzanne M. Lenhart (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the AWM office (email@example.com).
