Note: ALL FUNDING FOR THIS WORKSHOP HAS BEEN ALLOCATED As part of the Mathematical Sciences Collaborative Diversity Initiatives, the six NSF-funded U.S. mathematics institutes will host their annual SACNAS pre-conference event, the 2022 Modern Math Workshop (MMW). The Modern Math Workshop encourages undergraduates from underrepresented groups to pursue careers in the mathematical sciences, and builds research and networking opportunities among undergraduates, graduate students and recent PhDs. The workshop includes two mini-courses aimed at undergraduates, research sessions aimed at graduate students and recent PhDs, a panel addressing professional issues of interest to both, a reception open to all participants, and a plenary talk by Dr. Leona Harris.  The MMW is part of the SACNAS National Conference and begins at noon on Wednesday, October 26 and ends at noon on Thursday, October 27. >> Download a workshop flyer to share (PDF)   2022 Mini Courses Dr. Moon Duchin (Tufts University) Modeling Democracy (with Geometry and Probability) Dr. David Uminsky (University of Chicago) and Dr. Mario Banuelos (California State University, Fresno) Mathematics of Data Science: Theory & Practice How to Apply Create an MSRI account (or log in to your existing account).      Make sure that your MSRI profile is linked with an ORCID identifier. Instructions will be at the top of the page after logging in.  Go to https://www.msri.org/workshops/1056/registrations/new to fill out the registration form. * Once you have an account and ORCID identifier, all future registrations will simply require logging in to the website. Funding Recipients of SACNAS travel scholarships will be eligible to receive one additional night of lodging support through the Modern Math Workshop.  Those who do not receive funding from SACNAS are eligible to receive full support for travel and lodging (double-occupancy) and partial reimbursement of SACNAS registration fees.  The deadline to apply for funding is July 8, 2022.
