MATHEMATICS EXHIBIT ON CAPITOL HILL
Donald E. McClure, of Brown University, represented mathematics at this year's CNSF Exhibition, held May 19, 1999, in the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington DC. Don's exhibit was entitled "Mathematical Foundations of Image Analysis and Computational Vision".
This exhibition of NSF-funded research is organized annually by the Coalition for National Science Funding, a network of around fifty scientific, mathematical and engineering organizations, universities, higher education associations and industry groups, working together in support of the National Science Foundation. The exhibition provides Congressional staff, Representatives and Senators, with the opportunity to talk directly with scientists, mathematicians and engineers about their NSF-funded research.
This year over 30 exhibitors presented displays featuring computer demonstrations, videos and educational material, and discussed their work with Congressional staff. Over 100 staffers and a dozen Members of Congress attended, in addition to national press and NSF and other agency representatives.
The American Mathematical Society is very grateful to Professor McClure for his generous contribution to this important outreach effort on behalf of mathematics.
