Attention All Undergraduate mathematics majors!

The Institute For Mathematical and Statistical Innovation will host the 3rd BRING MATH workshop will take place October 3-4, 2024.  The workshop will be hosted at Argonne National Laboratory and sponsored by IMSI.  Its purpose is to expose undergraduates to research in mathematics and statistics being done at Argonne and its connections with real world applications, and to educate them about  opportunities related to the mathematical sciences which are available to them, both during summers and longer term.  The workshop is also open to faculty who wish to accompany a group of students to the workshop.  Applications are due by June 28, 2024.  


The Thirteenth International Workshop on Coding and Cryptography (WCC, 2024)

June 17-21, 2024 in Perugia, Italy
