The GSMM Camp is a weeklong workshop whose aim is graduate student education and career development directed towards interdisciplinary problem solving. The GSMM Camp is designed to promote a broad range of problem-solving skills, including mathematical modeling and analysis, scientific computation, and critical assessment of solutions. The mathematical problems considered at the Camp are highly interdisciplinary in nature and are inspired by real problems that arise in industrial applications. The work on the problems is done by graduate student teams, each with the guidance of an invited faculty mentor, so that scientific communication is an important and integral component of the work. As a result, the GSMM Camp exposes graduate students to real-world problems of current scientific interest, and provides a valuable educational and career-enhancing experience outside of the traditional academic setting.
Further information about the Camp is available by clicking on the GSMMC 2012 Links to the upper left. In particular, there is information for interested students and their faculty advisors, and registration information for students to apply to the program.
