Mathematical Sciences enters sponsorship agreement with Simons Laufer Mathematical Sciences Institute
The George Mason University's Department of Mathematical Sciences has recently become an Academic Sponsor of the Simons Laufer Mathematical Sciences Institute (SLMath formerly MSRI). This sponsorship gives us access to many undergraduate/graduate training and faculty research programs. SLMath, located in Berkeley, California, is one of the world’s preeminent centers for research in the mathematical sciences and has been advancing knowledge through mathematical research since 1982. It serves the mathematical sciences community through its topic-focused programs and workshops, and the general public via their national and global outreach initiatives. SLMath academic sponsors provide an interface between SLMath and the mathematical community. The Academic Sponsors participate in Institute governance and take part (at SLMath's expense) in a general meeting with the other sponsors and trustees each year for this purpose. SLMath helps support visits by members to sponsoring institutions. Sponsors are offered some financial backing of conferences at sponsoring institutions. SLMath/MSRI brings foremost mathematical scientists from around the world to work together in an environment that promotes creativity and effective collaboration. The Institute works for inclusiveness, and has many programs designed to enhance the participation of women and under-represented minorities.
