Application Deadline was September 12, 2017
This workshop will take place at SAMSI in Research Triangle Park, NC.
As part of its Education and Outreach Program for 2017-2018, the Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute (SAMSI) will host a two-day undergraduate workshop on topics of current interest in statistics and applied mathematics. In addition to an overview of current and planned SAMSI Research Programs, the program topic on Mathematical and Statistical Methods for Climate and the Earth System (CLIM) will be covered in some depth.
While students from universities not in the U.S. are welcome to apply, please be aware that priority is given to students who are enrolled at U.S. institutions.
If your application is accepted for the workshop, SAMSI will reimburse predetermined travel expenses. SAMSI will also provide shared lodging and meals/breaks during the days of the workshop.
