Fourth Conference for African-American Researchers in the Mathematical Sciences (CAARMS4)
June 16-19, 1998
at the Center for Research on Parallel Computation (CRPC), Rice University, 6100 Main Street, MS-41, Houston, Texas 77005-1892
CAARMS4 will highlight current work by African-American researchers and graduate students in mathematics, facilitate working relations between them, and identify common research interests and goals. Participants will attend talks, graduate student poster presentations, and tutorials in mathematics and computer science. These talks and presentations will bring a broader perspective to the critical issues involving minority participation in mathematics. The conference also will enable attendees to network and communicate, enhancing the growth of individual researchers as well as the general growth of mathematics among African-Americans.
