Women of Applied Mathematics: Research and Leadership
A workshop on Women of Applied Mathematics: Research and Leadership will be held October 8-10, 2003 at the University of Maryland at College Park. The workshop, consisting of research symposia and career development panel discussions, will provide a technical and professional forum for ten senior women and twenty-five early-career women (approx. 5-12 years past the Ph.D.) in applied mathematics.
The workshop has two objectives:
We are soliciting applications from early-career women in applied mathematics to attend the workshop. Participants will receive travel expenses. After the workshop, early-career participants are expected to lead an activity promoting women in mathematics and submit a report detailing that activity. Early-career is defined as several years past the postdoctoral stage, at the point where one is nearing or just past promotion and facing an increase in leadership responsibilities (e.g., leading research teams, being PI or co-PI on large proposals, and/or pursuing opportunities in management or administration). Roughly speaking, applicants in this category would be 5-12 years past the Ph.D. Application instructions are available on the web site listed below, and applications will be considered until all slots are filled.
This workshop is organized by Dianne P. O'Leary (University of Maryland) and Tamara G. Kolda (Sandia National Labs). Funding has been generously provided by the Mathematical, Information, and Computational Sciences (MICS) program in the Office of Science at the U.S. Department of Energy. The Computer Science Department and the Center for Scientific Computing and Mathematical Modeling of the University of Maryland at College Park will provide facilities for this workshop.
We hope that participants will also have an opportunity to interact with colleagues at
