Reconnect Conference 2002
Reconnecting Teaching Faculty to the Mathematical Sciences Enterprise

Voronoi Diagrams - Properties, Algorithms and Applications

August 11, 2002 - August 17, 2002
(Sunday evening through Saturday afternoon)

This conference exposes faculty teaching undergraduates to the mathematical sciences research enterprise by introducing them to a current research topic relevant to the classroom through a series of lectures by a leading expert and involving them in writing materials useful in the classroom. Participants have the possibility of following up by preparing these materials for publication in the DIMACS Educational Modules Series.

This conference is also aimed at reconnecting faculty to the mathematical sciences research enterprise by involving them in a leading research center which is a consortium of Princeton University, Rutgers University, AT&T Labs, Bell Labs/Lucent Technologies, NEC Research and Telcordia Technologies. There will be opportunities to follow up after the conference by getting connected to DIMACS researchers and other DIMACS programs throughout the year.
