The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) plans a workshop from Sunday evening through Tuesday morning of the 1997 Annual Meeting of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM). AWM and SIAM welcome your participation.
The sessions focus on the reporting of research results and the mentoring of graduate students and postdoctoral mathematicians. Our first session is a minisymposium which focuses on skills in written communication involving research papers and grant proposals. Our workshop also has three research minisymposium, a panel discussion on research and funding opportunities, and a poster session.
