1996 SIAM Annual Meeting

AWM Workshop
Focus on Reporting Research Results


The Association for Women in Mathematics plans a two-day event for the first two days of the 1996 Annual Meeting for the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. AWM and SIAM welcome your participation.

The event focuses on the reporting of research results and mentoring of graduate students and Postdocs. It includes a minisymposium which specifically addresses the topic of how to give an oral presentation, four research-focused minisymposia on control theory, inverse problems, dynamical systems, and stochastic processes, and one poster session.

Participants will have an opportunity to meet one on one with established researchers and to receive feedback on the presentation of their own talks. Those attending the workshop events can interact with outstanding applied mathematicians from industry, government laboratories and universities over two informal lunches and a dinner where there will be panels on careers, on government funding and a keynote speaker.

An important event at the dinner on Monday evening, July 22, will be the awarding of the Alice T. Schafer Prize. This prize is awarded annually to outstanding undergraduate women for their accomplishments and promise in the field of mathematics. It is given in alternate years at AMS and SIAM annual meetings.
