Mathematics and Planet Earth at NJ MAA meeting – call for talks
Here’s a nice opportunity in the NYC area, deadline is next week:
Mathematics and Planet Earth – Mathematical Association of America, NJ Section Spring 2013 Conference
The Mathematical Association of America (MAA)-NJ Spring Meeting will have a special contributed paper session on Mathematics and Planet Earth, where participants will give a talk for about 15-20 minutes on their papers. The organizer of the session is calling for papers from graduate students, faculty members and researchers working on any topic(s) related to Mathematics and Planet Earth. All submitted papers will be reviewed by the organizers and the selection committee. Please submit a title and an abstract by February 20, 2013 to the organizer of the session – Dr. Srabasti Dutta at email@example.com and Dr. Patricia Kenschaft at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Preferences will be given to those papers that use Mathematics, show applications of Mathematics, focus on Mathematical modeling or discuss about how perhaps Mathematics can be used to solve some relevant or important questions related to Planet Earth. Topics can be on anything from complex modeling to simple issues like how hybrid cars can help the Planet Earth. Though the workshop is organized by MAA-NJ, you need not be a Mathematics professor, researcher or graduate student to present a paper. Everyone is welcome. Similarly, the talks can involve complex Mathematics and research and thus be aimed at the graduate students and researchers in the fields, or, the talks can be aimed at school teachers, undergraduate students or college faculty.
The workshop will take place during the joint Mathematical Association of America (MAA)-NJ and GSUMC (Garden State Undergraduate Mathematics Conference) spring meeting at Felician College (Lodi Campus), Lodi, New Jersey on April 13, 2013. Please pass this message to your students and colleagues.
