[DMANET] Rocky Mountain-Great Plains Graduate Research Workshop (GRWC) 2015

Rocky Mountain-­Great Plains Graduate Research Workshop in Combinatorics 2015 (GRWC 2015)
June 1-­12, 2015 (Arrive May 31, depart June 13)
Iowa State University
Ames, IA, USA

GRWC is a 2-­week collaborative research workshop for experienced graduate students from
all areas of combinatorics, broadly interpreted. Students will work in collaborative groups with
faculty and postdocs on research problems from across the discipline. The workshop will
also host a variety of professional development workshops to prepare students and postdocs
for the job hunt and their transition to the careers in academia, government, or industry.
All graduate students applying to participate in the GRWC will submit an open problem in
combinatorics. Organizing faculty will engage in 1-­on-­1 mentoring with participants to help
them refine their submissions. These problems will form the basis of the collaborative
research undertaken at the workshop.

We anticipate funding (lodging, some meals, and in some cases travel) for 10-­20 graduate
students from outside of the organizing institutions. Applications are encouraged from
students at institutions both within and outside the United States. There is funding both for
students from US institutions as well as funding for those from outside of the US.
Applications can be submitted at MathPrograms.org<http://MathPrograms.org>. The organizing committee will begin
considering applications on February 16th and will respond to all applications by March 13.

The organizing institutions for GRWC are Iowa State University, University of Colorado
Denver, University of Denver, University of Nebraska-­Lincoln, and University of Wyoming.
The workshop is funded in part by these institutions, the Institute for Mathematics and its
Applications (IMA), Elsevier, the International Linear Algebra Society (ILAS), and we have
applied for US NSF funding.
