The GSMM Camp operates hand in hand with the annual Mathematical Problems in Industry (MPI) Workshop, this year to be held at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. The Camp runs during the week prior to the Workshop and the students and mentors attending the Camp are encouraged to attend the Workshop as well. Thus, the GSMM Camp provides an additional problem-solving experience for graduate students as a warm-up prior to the Workshop.
Camp Organizers and Invited Mentors
The GSMM Camp is organized by David A. Edwards and Louis Rossi at the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Delaware. Inquiries can be made to the organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The invited mentors for GSMMC 2019 will be announced shortly.
Student Participation and Application Form
Graduate students who are actively pursuing and MS or Ph.D in some area of applied mathematics are invited to apply to GSMMC 2019. Interested students should complete the online application form and have a signed letter of recommendation emailed to the Camp Coordinator, Lynn Popowich, at email@example.com.
Graduate student support for GSMMC 2019 is limited, so early applications are encouraged.
The selection will be based on academic background and interests as indicated in the application form, and on the letter of recommendation provided by a faculty sponsor. Women and students from underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.
Applications must be completed by April 26, 2019 for full consideration, and successful applicants will be notified by early to mid May.
Successful applicants will be encouraged to attend MPI 2019 and support will be provided to attend that meeting as well.
Camp Format and Location
The GSMM Camp is an informal problem-solving workshop. On the first day of the Camp, the invited faculty mentors will present problems to the whole group. These problems, spanning a wide range of topics, are chosen to exercise and enhance the problem-solving skills of the attending graduate students. After the initial problem presentations, the graduate students break up into small groups, according to each student's problem preference, to work in teams with the help of the faculty mentors. Work on the problems proceeds in an informal setting for the remainder of the Camp. On the last day, summary presentations highlighting the work done are given by student representatives from each team.
All activities of the Camp take place on the campus of University of Delaware; more details are listed on the program page. Lodging for visiting graduate students will be provided in university housing (dorms/suites) and meals will be provided for all students and mentors. During the Camp, students and mentors will have access to campus computing, library and recreational facilities.
