Student-Faculty Research Day provides students and faculty with the opportunity to present their research.

This year's conference is dedicated to the work of George Dantzig on the Centenary of his birth.


1914-2005
   "George Bernard Dantzig was an American mathematical scientist who made important contributions to operations research, computer science, economics, and statistics. Dantzig is known for his development of the simplex algorithm, an algorithm for solving linear programming problems, and his work with linear programming. In statistics, Dantzig solved two open problems in statistical theory, which he had mistaken for homework after arriving late to a lecture of Jerzy Neyman. Dantzig was the Professor Emeritus of Transportation Sciences and Professor of Operations Research and of Computer Science at Stanford." (Wikipedia)
