Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012, 5:30 – 8pm
ICERM, 121 South Main Street, Providence RI
RSVP at Facebook

ICERM (Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics) officially opened last fall in the renovated top 2 (amazing) floors of 121 South Main Street, and we’re all invited to visit that space. Hot topics that the ICERM community is expected to tackle include cryptography, cybersecurity, personalized medicine, search engines and social networks.

On Wednesday the 23rd, Professors George Karniadakis and Jeffrey Hoffstein will give us a double header of talks. Professor Karniadakis will present on the topic of how math and supercomputers are powering virtual biomedicine, and Professor Hoffstein will give a talk called “Math + Cryptography = $$? A funny thing happened on the way to the bank”. Don’t miss this!

We’re grateful to this geek dinner’s sponsor, Betaspring, who is stepping in to close any gap in funds between what you folks eat and drink and the minimum that our caterer requires. (Also, the early application deadline is fast approaching for Betaspring’s Fall 2012 accelerator.

Please RSVP at Facebook – and while you’re there please join our Facebook group. And if you want to join our very-low-volume email announcement send an email to Jack Templin, with your name and affiliation.
