The Mid-Atlantic SENCER Center for Innovation will be holding a regional meeting on October 16 at New York City College of Technology in Brooklyn. The meeting is being hosted by Urmi Gosh-Dastidar of the Mathematics Department.

The speed by which we now communicate continues to shape the world in unpredictable ways. Rapidly changing technologies have ushered in an age of “instantaneous communication” creating both exciting possibilities and new challenges. With a human population exceeding 7 billion people, sustaining an extraordinary quality of life for generations to come while protecting the earth and its resources is a shared challenge facing all of humanity. Issues arising from sustainability and the developing cyber-infrastructure have fueled changing demands in workforce skills. This talk will illustrate and engage students in activities that address the development of crucial workforce skills needed to face the challenges of the 21st century. These activities will set the stage for further discussion of current research projects.

Dr. Eugene Fiorini, Associate Director of Rutgers University Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science is the plenary speaker for a presentation titled "Planet Earth."

All members of the community are invited and encouraged to share and present about SENCER initiatives. To submit presentations contact Mid-Atlantic SCI Co-Director Monica Devanas
