Organizing Committee
Abstract

This workshop, sponsored by AIM, ICERM, and the NSF, will introduce undergraduate faculty to research opportunities in several fields of mathematics that will equip them with the tools to mentor students in undergraduate research in mathematics. Lectures at the workshop will provide background information and introduce open problems. The majority of the workshop will be spent working on problems, reporting on progress, and formulating plans for future work.

The workshop will be hosted at ICERM.

Accepted participants will receive support through AIM for travel, accommodation, and per diem.

Preference will be given to faculty who teach and advise substantial numbers of minority students.

If you would like to participate, please apply by filling out the on-line form. Applications open in January 2015 and are open to all. We especially encourage women, underrepresented minorities, junior mathematicians, and researchers from primarily undergraduate institutions to apply.
