June 14, 2018 - The 2018 Summer@ICERM program at Brown University is an eight-week residential program designed for a select group of 16-20 undergraduate scholars from around the world.

The faculty advisers will present a variety of research projects that are interdisciplinary and represent areas in low-dimensional topology, hyperbolic geometry, dynamics, and combinatorics. Student researchers will have the opportunity to explore theoretical problems at the intersections of these subfields, and to help design software packages for visualizing and experimenting with the building blocks of hyperbolic and affine geometry. https://icerm.brown.edu/summerug/

June 12, 2018 - Bjorn Sandstede, ICERM Associate Director, talks about Race & Gender in the Scientific Community. Interview by Mary Silber. #SIAM
