This conference is geared towards exposing faculty teaching undergraduates to two current research topics relevant to the classroom, involving them in writing materials useful in the classroom.

The conference is also aimed at reconnecting faculty to the mathematical sciences enterprise by involving them in a leading research center which is a consortium of Princeton University, Rutgers University, AT&T, Bellcore, Bell Labs/Lucent Technologies and NEC Research. There will be opportunities to follow up after the conference by getting connected to DIMACS researchers and other DIMACS programs throughout the year.

Conference Organizers:
Rochelle Leibowitz, Wheaton College
Fred S. Roberts, Rutgers University

Sessions will be held at the DIMACS headquarters, located at Rutgers University in Piscataway, NJ
