This workshop will be offered virtually. The in-person meeting has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak. A schedule for virtual talks will be posted soon. Accepted participants will be notified how to access the virtual presentations.
Organizing Committee

Experimental geometry labs create an environment ripe for students and faculty to treat mathematics as a laboratory science. Visualization and computational pattern discovery help guide research, formulate conjectures and develop ideas in proofs. In addition to research, experimental geometry labs foster community engagement via grassroots outreach activities in local schools, libraries, and museums. These activities spread the wonder and excitement of mathematics to people both within and outside the academy.

This workshop is partially supported by the Department of Mathematical Sciences and the College of Science at George Mason University.

For this workshop, ICERM welcomes applications from undergraduates, graduates, postdocs, and faculty who wish to participate. Undergraduate students and graduate students who apply should ask their advisor to submit a statement of support by July 3. We will ask students to present their work.
