The Workshop on the Mathematics of Homeland Security is an
exciting two-day program designed to introduce high school
mathematics teachers to mathematical methods that are applied
to important problems in homeland security.

Topics will include methods for: detecting disease outbreaks,
inspecting containers at ports, identifying strategies to prevent
the spread of disease, locating sensors for biological chemical
and nuclear threats, finding evidence of conspiracies, and
identifying the author of a document.

The workshop is offered by the new DHS Center for Dynamic Data
Analysis (DyDAn) based at the Center for Discrete Mathematics
and Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS) at Rutgers University.
The topics will be presented by leading researchers involved in
applying mathematics to problems in homeland security.

The workshop will provide activities and materials that will enable
you to introduce your students to how mathematics is applied to
these important problems.

* LOCATION: The workshop will be held at Rutgers University/New Brunswick
- - Busch Campus in Piscataway, NJ.

* DATES: May 31 and June 1, 2007 8:30am to 4:00pm
