Reconnect Conference 2008

Reconnecting Teaching Faculty to the Mathematical Sciences Enterprise and
Exposing Researchers in Government and Industry to Relevant Current Research

Mathematical Methods in Biosurveillance: From basics to breakthroughs
Principal Speaker: Nina Fefferman, Rutgers University, 
feferman at Math.Princeton.EDU
June 8 - June 14, 2008 (Sunday evening through Saturday afternoon)

About the Reconnect Conference:
The DyDAn Summer Reconnect Conferences will expose faculty teaching 
undergraduates to the role of the mathematical sciences in homeland 
security by introducing them to a current research topic that will be 
relevant for classroom presentation. The conferences also offer researchers 
in government or industry the opportunity to learn about recent techniques 
in emerging application areas relevant to homeland security.

Topics will be presented in a week-long series of lectures and activities 
led by an expert in the field. Participants will be involved in both 
research activities and in writing materials useful in the classroom or to 
share with their colleagues, with the possibility of ultimately preparing 
these materials for publication in either our Technical Report or our 
Educational Modules Series.

These workshops offer the opportunity for junior faculty as well as 
mid-level and senior faculty, and government and industry professionals to 
explore 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 and have the 
opportunity to network with people from a variety of backgrounds.

Conference Organizer: Fred S. Roberts, Rutgers University 
(froberts at dimacs.rutgers.edu)

Where: Sessions will be held at the DyDAn Center, located at Rutgers 
University in Piscataway, NJ.

Registration Fees, Lodging, Meals and Travel:
· Academic participants: Lodging and meals will be provided through DHS 
funding. Limited funds are expected to be available for travel 
awards.  There are no registration fees.
· Applicants from government and for-profit corporations are asked to 
provide their own travel and lodging, plus registration fees* (that cover 
all meals from Sunday dinner to Saturday lunch) as follows:

   o Corporate participants: $500.
*Funds may be available to waive part or all of the registration fee and/or 
partially support travel and lodging.

Who May Apply?
Anyone may apply. Preference will be given to faculty whose primary job is 
undergraduate teaching and those working at government labs. Two-year 
college faculty are welcome to apply. Faculty from groups under-represented 
in mathematics are also encouraged to apply.
