Conference of the Association of Christians in the Mathematical Sciences

Indiana Wesleyan University, May 29-June 1, 2019

 The 22nd Biennial ACMS conference will be held at Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Indiana May 29-June 1, 2019. In the coming months, conference details will be posted at the acmsonline.org website.

Call for Papers: At this time we are accepting proposals for talks. Proposals must include the presenter’s name, presentation title, and an abstract of at most 250 words. Please provide your abstract in Word or TeX/LaTeX. Most presentation timeslots will be 15 minutes plus a 5 minute transition time between speakers. Some timeslots of 25 minutes with a 5 minute transition will be available; please indicate if you would like to be considered for one of these longer presentations. Applications will be processed on a rolling basis in order to help those applying for funding at their institution; we will attempt to notify you within 2 weeks of submission whether your proposal has been selected for the conference (except for a longer pause during July 2018).

We are looking for presentations in the following general categories. Research talks should be targeted to an audience primarily of non-specialists.

  • Computer Science / Computer Science Education
  • Mathematics / Mathematics Education
  • Statistics / Statistics Education
  • Interaction of Faith and Discipline

There will be dedicated tracks in Computer Science as well as in Statistics/Data Science.

Proposals should be sent to melvin.royer(at)indwes.edu by February 15, 2019 with ACMS proposal in the subject line. Proposals received after February 15 will be considered if space remains.

Refereed Proceedings: Please note that the 2019 ACMS Proceedings will be refereed. To allow authors time to incorporate audience feedback into their paper, all submissions to the Proceedings will be due September 15, 2019. Submissions for the Proceedings should be in TeX or LaTeX; more details will be provided at a later date.

Topic Discussions: We are also accepting topics suggestions and volunteer leaders for several group discussions on subjects of common interest. These can also be sent to melvin.royer(at)indwes.edu.

Costs: We are in the process of finalizing the cost of the conference but we estimate the costs to be approximately $140 for faculty and $50 for students for those registering before February 28, 2019. Room and Board (Wednesday dinner – Saturday breakfast) estimates are:

  • Meals, single or shared room with linens and pillow
    • Faculty: $175 per person
    • Students: $90 per person
  • Tuesday night room: $25 per person

Preconference Workshop: There will be two preconference workshops during the day of Wednesday, May 29. The estimated cost is $40 for faculty and $20 for students which includes Wednesday breakfast and lunch. The two workshops are

  • Professional development for graduates students and early career faculty
  • Programming and using R

We hope to start taking online conference registrations in August 2018. If you need to register before that time for funding purposes, please contact Jeremy Case jrcase(at)taylor.edu.

The Association of Christians in the Mathematical Sciences (ACMS) is pleased to announce the publication of Volume 21 of the ACMS Proceedings which can be found at the www.acmsonline.org webpage or at https://acmsonline.org/conferences/ (or click the image below).

The 21st biennial conference for the Association of Christians in the Mathematical Sciences was held at Charleston Southern University in May 2017.

 This is the first time the ACMS Proceedings have been refereed. The 22nd biennial conference will be held at Indiana Wesleyan University May 29-June 1, 2019. A call for papers for the 2019 conference will be announced in May 2018.

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.
