Opportunity Text: 

The thirteenth annual Graduate Student Mathematical Modeling Camp will be held at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, June 7-10, 2016. Further details can be found at

Briefly, the Camp is a four-day problem-solving workshop for graduate students. Invited faculty mentors will present problems to the group on the first day, and then the participating graduate students will form teams to work on the problems informally for the remainder of the Camp with the aid of the mentors. Students will give summary presentations of their work on the last day. Also, students will be invited to attend the Mathematical Problems in Industry (MPI) Workshop held at Duke University during the week immediately following the Camp. The Workshop has a similar structure, but is attended by students, post-docs and faculty, and focuses on problems brought by representatives from industry.

Financial support is available for graduate students to attend both the Camp and the Workshop, and I invite you to pass this information along to interested graduate students in your department and to post the attached flyer. The web pages provide more details and offer an online application form. Please note that the deadline for applications is April 29, 2016, but financial support is limited so that early applications are encouraged.
