About the Reconnect Conferences:

These conferences expose 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.

These workshops offer 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.

These conferences are also aimed at reconnecting faculty to the
mathematical sciences 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.

Conference Organizers:

Rochelle Leibowitz, Wheaton College

Fred S. Roberts, Rutgers University (froberts at

Funds for Lodging, Meals and Travel: Lodging and meals will be
provided through anticipated NSF funding. Limited funds are expected
to be available for travel awards. Who may apply? Anyone may apply.
Please apply for any one of the conferences or all of them. Preference
will be given to faculty whose primary job is undergraduate teaching.
Two-year college faculty are welcome to apply. Faculty from groups
under-represented in mathematics are encouraged to apply.
