SIAM Northwest Regional Mathematics in Industry Workshop, October 12-14, 2000, Husky Union Building (HUB), University of Washington, Seattle, WA

Hosted by the University of Washington, Seattle, WA

This is the fifth workshop in a series of regional meetings focusing on mathematics in industry. These workshops (funded by an NSF grant to SIAM) are intended to provide a forum for discussion on applied/industrial mathematics programs. See for pointers to previous workshop in this series and the SIAM Report on Mathematics in Industry. The goal of the Northwest Workshop is to facilitate discussion between faculty, students, and mathematicians working in industry and national laboratories. The program will feature talks by representatives from local industry describing both their technical work and the opportunities for collaboration with academia and for summer internships. Additionally a number of university programs designed to enhance university/industryinteractions or to prepare students for careers in industry will bedescribed and there will be discussions of related undergraduate and graduate curriculum issues. Current and former students will describetheir experiences working in industry and national laboratories, whileparallel sessions will focus on more specific problem areas.
