    The focus of the workshop is on supporting new research collaborations within small groups. Before the workshop, each participant will be assigned to a working group according to her research interests. Prior to the conference, the two project leaders will design projects and provide background reading and references for their groups. At the conference, there will be some talks, but there will also be ample time dedicated to working groups. Project leaders will direct their group's research effort and provide mentorship. At the end of the week, members of each research group will describe their group's progress on the research problems as well as future directions for the work.

This conference supports the Non-Discrimination Statement of the Association for Women in Mathematics
and is partially supported by NSF-HRD 1500481 - AWM ADVANCE  grant.
