July 25-29, 2016 at the American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, California
This workshop, sponsored by AIM, ICERM, and the NSF, will introduce undergraduate faculty to research opportunities in several fields of mathematics that will equip them with the tools to mentor students in undergraduate research in mathematics. Lectures at the workshop will provide background information and introduce open problems. The majority of the workshop will be spent working on problems, reporting on progress, and formulating plans for future work.
Preference will be given to faculty who teach and advise substantial numbers of underrepresented minority students, students with disabilities, and first-generation college students. Participants will receive a travel allowance, lodging accommodation, and per diem.
