Reconnect Satellite Conference 2003:
Salem State College

Reconnecting Teaching Faculty to the Mathematical Sciences Enterprise

Some Current Problems in Coding Theory

Dates: June 15 - June 21, 2003
(Sunday evening through Saturday afternoon)


This conference exposes faculty teaching undergraduates to the mathematical sciences research enterprise by introducing them to a current research topic relevant to the classroom through a series of lectures by a leading expert and involving them in writing materials useful in the classroom. Participants have the possibility of following up by preparing these materials for publication in the DIMACS Educational Modules Series.

The workshop offers the opportunity for junior faculty as well as mid-level and senior faculty to advance to research questions in a new area of the mathematical sciences. Participants will also acquire materials and gain ideas for seminar presentations and for undergraduate research projects.

This conference is also aimed at reconnecting faculty to the mathematical sciences research enterprise by involving them in a leading research center which is a consortium of Princeton University, Rutgers University, AT&T Labs, Bell Labs/Lucent Technologies, NEC Research and Telcordia Technologies. There will be opportunities to follow up after the conference by getting connected to DIMACS researchers and other DIMACS programs throughout the year.
