SAMSI Undergraduate Modeling Workshop
SAMSI will host a one week undergraduate workshop intended for college juniors and seniors focused on SAMSI research activities related to the statistical and applied mathematical modeling and analysis of experimental data. During the first day, a summary of research activities in the 2009-2010 programs on Space-Time Analysis for Environmental Mapping, Epidemiology and Climate Change, and Stochastic Dynamics will be presented. In days two through five, participants will be involved in a hands-on experience. They will use mathematical and statistical models to analyze epidemiological data.
Tutorials on modeling, mathematical and statistical methodology will be given. Participants working together in small teams will analyze the available data using mathematical and statistical software.
Applicants should use the On-line Application form, and also have one letter of recommendation sent to email@example.com. Full financial support for travel expenses, subsistence and lodging in university housing will be provided for all attendees. Due to space considerations, participation is restricted and will be offered to approximately 30 individuals selected from the applicant pool. Participants are expected to arrive for the workshop on Sunday, May 16, 2010 and remain in continuous attendance until 12:00 pm on Friday, May 21, 2010.
Applications will be considered beginning February 11, 2010 and continuing until April 2, 2010, but registration will likely be closed before that date, as workshop capacity is reached. Successful applicants will be notified of their acceptance as soon as a decision on their application is reached.
Upon acceptance for the program, individuals must confirm by email within three days their intention to participate (otherwise their place will be given to another applicant). Accepted participants will be advised regarding airfares and will need to purchase plane tickets with a three-week advance fare.
