*****************

Ric Ancel and Craig Guilbault are co-organizers of a popular series of NSF sponsored summer workshops. Other organizers are: Dennis Garity (Oregon State University), Fred Tinsley (Colorado College), Eric Swenson (Brignam young University, Gerard Venema (Calvin College), David Wright (Brigham Young University) and Greg Friedman (Texas Christian University).

The 2014 Workshop will be hosted by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee on June 12-14 with Craig Guilbault and Ric Ancel the main organizesr. Kevin Whyte of the University of Illinois at Chicago will be the principal speaker. For details, go here.
