Mathematical problems arising in real world settings typically embody complicated, interdisciplinary issues of formulation, analysis and solution, and solutions are frequently sought numerically. Minorities in mathematical careers are often attracted to areas in which their results can have a societal impact. Opportunities to learn the computational tools may be available in a mathematics department or across campus in a school of computational science, in the school of engineering or sometimes in a school of information technology. Students need to access this resource wherever it is located and also need to know what kind of skills make them most suitable for jobs at government labs and in industry. The purpose of the weekend workshop is to show examples of people and problems from industrial and government laboratory settings, provide discussions of expectations of nonacademic and academic employers, and provide tools for participants to help them participate fully in applied areas.
The first goal will be achieved through technical talks by selected participants, chosen based on their success with realworld problems. The second will be achieved by a panel of experts from each of the indicated areas discussing their expectations, and the third by a tutorial on issues in computational science. The program will take advantage of some of the experts in residence due to the spring 2001 IMA program on Geometric Design and Computer Graphics, and the Tutorial on Computer Graphics that will be held May 1011.
This is meant to be a "networking" workshop; participation will be limited in order to facilitate a high degree of interaction.The IMA will invite approximately (i) 20 senior minority mathematical scientists, from industry, government laboratories, and universities. (ii) 40 minority graduate students with interest in the application of mathematics. The IMA will write to department chairs around the United States to solicit graduate student candidates to participate in the workshop. Other sources of minority applicants will be contacted, such as participants on listservs of various minority scientific groups. The final decision on the invited students will take demographic distribution and likely impact on the minority applied mathematics community into account.
