RECONNECT CONFERENCE

Reconnecting Teaching Faculty to the Mathematical Sciences Enterprise

The Reconnect Conferences expose faculty teaching undergraduates to the mathematical sciences research enterprise by introducing them to current research topics that are relevant for classroom presentation. They also offer an opportunity to researchers in government or industry to learn about recent techniques.

Through our homeland security center, CCICADA, many Reconnect topics explore the role of the mathematical sciences in homeland security.

Topics are presented in a weeklong series of lectures and activities led by leading experts in the field. Participants are involved in both research activities and in writing materials useful in the classroom or to share with their colleagues, with the possibility of ultimately preparing these materials for publication as a research paper or an educational module.

These conferences offer faculty, government and industry professionals the opportunity to advance research questions in a new area of the mathematical sciences. Participants also acquire materials and gain ideas for seminar presentations and for undergraduate research projects and have the opportunity to network with people from a variety of backgrounds.
