The Rowlee Lecture Series are suitable for a large, diverse audience which does not necessarily have a mathematical or scientific background.
If you wish to attend the conference, please contact. If you would like to present a poster at the conference, please send us a paragraph-long abstract by March 13, 2012.
We have some financial support available, especially for early-career researchers. If you need support to attend this conference, please send the following information to: name; institution; type of employment (postdoc, tenure track, tenured, visiting faculty, graduate student, undergraduate); support you anticipate being able to get from a grant or from your institution; and estimated travel expenses. Whether or not you present a poster will not affect the amount of financial support available.
There is no registration fee. Support has been provided by the UNL Department of Mathematics, the UNL School of Biological Sciences, the UNL School of Natural Resources, and the National Science Foundation.
