Triangle Computational and Applied Mathematics Symposium
November 10 - November 12, 2023


 DUKE      NCCU      NC State      UNC

The second Triangle Computational and Applied Mathematics Symposium (TriCAMS) will be jointly hosted by Duke University and NC Central University. The first day of the conference will be at NCCU and the second day and a half will be at Duke. The two universities together have chosen two outside speakers to invite. The invited outside speakers will be Asamoah Nkwanta of Morgan State University and Eric Vanden-Eijnden of New York University. The Inaugural TriCAMS was hosted in 2022 by NCSU.
The conference will have five Plenary talks and lots of time for interaction between the participants. In particular, there will be a Lightning Talk Session and an accompanying poster session. Graduate Students and Postdoc are particularly encouraged to participate in the Lightning Talks and Poster Season. Prizes will be awarded to the best poster submissions.

About the Conference

The Research Triangle and surrounding southeast Atlantic region boasts a large and vibrant community in applied and computational mathematics spanning more than a dozen academic institutions, quite a few government agencies and laboratories, and numerous high-tech companies engaging in fundamental and applied research, interdisciplinary collaborations, biomedical and industrial applications, and education and outreach. The broader Triangle Computational and Applied Mathematics community is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion. The aim of the annual TriCAMS is to provide an opportunity for this community to discover one another, and to integrate, network, and collaborate toward common goals and aspirations rooted in applied and computational mathematics. The goals of TriCAMS are to: 

Registration is both free and required for planning and security purposes.‚Äč Everyone is encouraged to register as soon as possible since once capacity is reached, registration will be closed.  

Lightning Talks

The lightning session is open to all participants who are interested in presenting a high-level snapshot of their research project or results for visibility to all TriCAMS participants. Each presentation is no more than 3 minutes (sharp). Those whose posters are accepted will have a chance to upload a video of their presentation in advance. The video will be available to all registered participants of TriCAMS. A random process will be used to determine the order of presentations and to select 30 presenters if there are more submitted presentations than available slots. Prizes will be given for the best posters !!!
