Led by Professor Greg Forest, UNC Professor of Mathematics, in collaboration with NC State Professor Alina Chertock, Chair of the Department of Mathematics in the College of Sciences, along with Duke Professor Hongkai Zhao and NC Central Professor Kimberly Weems, the Triangle Computational and Applied Mathematics (TriCAMS) symposium is an inaugural event to launch collaborations and engage the computational and applied mathematics community in academia, industry, and government in areas of application where computational and applied mathematics can address enduring problems and issues.
This 2-day symposium will include plenary talks, speakers from each of the host institutions, lighting round sessions and a poster session for attendees to discuss their research with faculty, students and external guests from industry. The symposium was originally scheduled to be held at NC State University on October 16-17, 2021 but has been postponed to September 17-18, 2022 due to the COVID pandemic. The PIs are seeking support from each of the four host institutions (NC State, UNC-CH, Duke, and NC Central) and also plan to engage the Southeast Atlantic Section of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics as well as the NSF Division of Mathematical Sciences in support of the TriCAM symposium and subsequent activities. KIETS support would serve to leverage support from the host institutions and KIETS is also helping the PIs identify academic and industry collaborators in support of this initiative
