Math+Art = Great Public Outreach
ICERM's fall Illustrating Mathematics seeks to harness the creativity of mathematical illustrations to further the public’s understanding of mathematical research. ICERM hosted a hugely successful open house during the "Big Bang Science Fair" WaterFire event in Providence in September. Upcoming events include: Math+Art Exhibit at Brown's Granoff Center running October 18, 2019 - November 21, 2019 and a public lecture, also at the Granoff Center.
Welcome New Board Members
ICERM welcomed several new board members over the summer. Our Board of Trustees added Julia Kempe and Karen Smith. The Scientific Advisory Board was joined by Anne Gelb, Bill Goldman, Misha Kilmer, Mauro Maggioni, and Jonathan Wilkening. The Education Advisory Board welcomed Tarik Aougab, Rachel Levy, and Jessica Sidman. We thank the following board members who rotated off, including Doug Arnold, Yann LeCun (BOT), Qiang Du, Charlie Epstein, and Ricardo Nochetto (SAB).
Apply by January for July WiSCon
ICERM is pleased to announce its 2020 Summer@ICERM program: Fast Algorithms for Numerical Computation and Data Analysis. Organizers will present interdisciplinary research topics utilizing large-scale linear algebra, model reduction, randomized algorithms, and deep learning. Participants will learn the theoretical underpinnings of these research topics in applied and computational mathematics, and will help develop open-source software tools that accomplish data-driven scientific predictions.
Congrats to Ulrica Wilson
Hearty congratulations to ICERM's own Ulrica Wilson (Morehouse College), who has been named a Fellow of the Association for Women in Mathematics. Ulrica is being recognized for her many years in support of the professional development of women in their pursuit of graduate degrees in mathematics, most visibly through mentoring, teaching, and program administration within the EDGE Program, and as Associate Director of Diversity and Outreach at ICERM.
ICERM is Hiring
ICERM has an opening for an Application Developer. If you or someone you know has an in-depth knowledge of Java as well as MySQL and MySQL server and is interested in application testing, software development, and full-stack maintenance within an agile team environment, visit the job posting for more information and to apply.
Featured Hot Topics Program
ICERM's Hot Topics workshop, Algorithms in Complex Dynamics and Mapping Class Groups will run November 2-3, 2019. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers in the computational theory of mapping class groups and those in the combinatorial theory of Thurston maps in order to make headway on fundamental problems. There are still seats available.
Make a Gift to GirlsGetMath
Did you know that GirlsGetMath@ICERM is funded solely through grants, donations, and gifts? Interest in the program continues to grow, but our funding sources do not. Your gift will help this outreach program continue to inspire high school students to love math. Please take a moment to make a tax-deductible gift through "Brunonia," Brown University's online giving portal. Select "Make a Gift". Then under "Gift Selections", click "Add more gifts", which specifies GirlsGetMath. Thank you!
2020 ORCID Identifier Requirement
In order for the NSF's Division of Mathematical Sciences to effectively evaluate math institutes, it will require that future funded participants provide their Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) identifier starting in 2020. Only those participants who furnish their ID to the hosting institute may be supported with award funds. To add your iD, log into ICERM's CUBE database and update your profile today!
