2013 ACMS Conference: Call for Papers

The following message is from the Association of Christians in the Mathematical Sciences in regards to paper proposals for the 19th ACMS conference next June at Bethel University in St. Paul, MN.

Call For Papers:

The biennial ACMS conference will be held at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota May 29th – June 1st. Details can be found at http://www.acmsonline.org/conferences/2013/ACMS_2013_ Conference.html

At this time we are soliciting presentation proposals for the parallel session times. Presentations are expected to last 15 minutes (including any questions) with a 5 minute transition time between speakers.

There will also be some limited opportunities for one or two 25-minute panels sessions. One likely session will feature new or pending books on the interaction between faith and our disciplines. You may propose other panels, but should then include suggestions for panel members.

There will be a poster session and two Birds of a Feather sessions. Proposals are also requested for these categories. One Birds of a Feather session will be aimed at graduate students and another along the lines of “the opportunities and pitfalls of the Christian college scene”.

We are looking for presentations in both mathematics and computer science. General categories would include (but not necessarily be limited to)

1. the interaction of faith and discipline

2. pedagogy

3. history of the discipline or interesting topics/achievements of the past

4. social/discipline interaction

5. current research of general interest (with an audience of primarily non-subdiscipline-experts)

Proposals should be sent to Eric Gossett (gossett (at) bethel.edu) by March 15, 2013. After that date, proposals will be considered if space remains.

Proposals should include: your name, the presentation title, and a presentation abstract.
