Graph Theory and its Applications to Problems of Society
The DIMACS CONNECT INSTITUTE (DCI), based at Rutgers University, takes the approach that research and education should work hand-in-hand. Collaborations between researchers and educators are formed by understanding each others' work and needs. To this end, the institute has designed separate programs that are focused on each group's interests, along with All-Institute Sessions aimed at meshing the two groups. The Institute offers a two-week program of research workshops, along with a four-week educational program for high school teachers. There will be two research workshops devoted to various topics in graph theory. Talks of both a "pure" and an "applied" nature will be featured.
Each week we will highlight several presentations that emphasize applications to problems of society, problems involving communications, transportation, medicine, urban services, etc.
How to Apply: All interested researchers should apply by contacting the appropriate research chair. Also, feel free to nominate graduate students or young researchers by sending a message to the appropriate research chair.Application can be found at: http://dimacs.rutgers.edu/dci/2001/registration.html
