> 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. 
>  Please share with your undergraduates

> Undergraduate Summer Research Program
> at Brown University
> Polygons and Polynomials
> June 16 - August 8, 2014 
> The 2014 Summer at ICERM program is designed for a select group of 12-14 undergraduate scholars. Students work in groups of two or three, supervised by faculty advisors and aided by teaching assistants. The faculty advisors provide a number of interesting open problems in combinatorics, number theory, and discrete geometry concerning polygons and polynomials, each suitable for computation and experimentation. The research topics include:
> Periods of Rational Polygons
> Barker Sequences
> Visualizing Harmonic Analysis
> Students form research groups to work on the problems, give talks about their findings, and write up their research into a paper at the end of the program.
> The Application Process:  
> Applications for the 2014 Summer at ICERM program are being accepted through MathPrograms.org (search under Brown University).
> Applicants must not yet have graduated with an undergraduate degree at the time of the program start.
> Funding is available for a limited number of students who are not US citizens or permanent residents.
> All application materials must be received by February 7, 2014.
>  *Accepted Brown University students will receive a Brown UTRA stipend in lieu of the Summer at ICERM funding package.  
> Summer at ICERM 2013 Cohort
> "The program exceeded my expectations by any standard I can think to apply -- the students were by and large strong and motivated, the ones I interacted with regularly were clearly learning quite a bit, the people involved in organizing the program were a pleasure to work with, and the outcomes in terms of research have been impressive. It was both fun and rewarding to be involved in this program"
