> ICERM's Mission 
> The mission of the Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) is to support and broaden the relationship between mathematics and computation: specifically, to expand the use of computational and experimental methods in mathematics, to support theoretical advances related to computation, and address problems posed by the existence and use of the computer through mathematical tools, research
> and innovation.

> The Summer at ICERM program is designed for a select group of 10-12 undergraduate scholars. Students will work in small groups of two or three, supervised by a faculty advisor and aided by a teaching assistant. The faculty advisors will describe a variety of enticing open questions in geometry and in dynamical systems of geometric origin. 
> 
> Topics discussed will include Euclidean, hyperbolic and projective geometry, iteration of geometric constructions, and mathematical billiards. A variety of activities around these research themes will allow participants to engage in collaborative research, communicate and examine their findings in formal and informal settings, and report-out their findings with a finished product.

> The Application Process
> 
> The Summer at ICERM program is open to all students who will be active undergraduates during summer, 2012. Applications are now open at Mathprograms.org. Please search under "Brown University" or click on the following Summer at ICERM application link: MailScanner has detected a possible fraud attempt from "r20.rs6.net" claiming to be http://www.mathprograms.org/db/ICERM 
>  
> *Brown University UTRA students must also complete a Brown UTRA application form, indicating interest in the Summer at ICERM program. Accepted Brown University UTRA students receive only a $3,000 stipend.
> 
> 
> All application materials are due by February 10, 2012.
