Series Description

A forum for presentation and discussion of mathematical, computational, and statistical questions of interest to the DIMACS/CCICADA community and arising from research challenges in a variety of disciplines. We expect the series to be of interest to applied mathematicians, computer scientists, and statisticians, as well as researchers and practitioners in engineering, bioinformatics, epidemiology, political science, sociology, and the behavioral sciences.

Recommendations for speakers (and offers to speak) should be directed to James Abello (abello@dmac.rutgers.edu) or Fred Roberts (froberts@dmac.rutgers.edu).
