SAMSA Graduate Workshop Paves The Path Forward.

SAMSA Victoria falls, RGSMA

As part of the training of the Simons Foundation project, The Southern Africa Mathematical Sciences Association in conjunction with MASAMU (An Auburn University, USA graduate training project) organized a workshop for graduate students from Africa and the United States from November 24th to November 28th 2014 in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.

The Simons Foundation Project based at the university of Botswana has sponsored two professors and seven graduate students. The project has paid all expenses for the students and professors (registration fee covers workshop material, lunches and local transport, per diem to cover accommodation, diner and travel expenses). This is based upon the project proposal.
