AUB has gained some prominence in the international scientific arena through the many activities and contributions of the Center for Advanced Mathematical Sciences, including its scientific publications, international conferences, workshops and seminars, and summer programs. CAMS is seeking to encourage more AUB faculty members to play an active role in its research foci and in organizing activities at the center. For this reason, it is introducing some changes in the center’s governance, with the key changes summarized as follows:
In addition to its fellows, CAMS has 79 Associate Scholars (as of September 2002), who conduct research in related fields such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, civil engineering, electrical and communications engineering, biomedical engineering, and business and management.
CAMS associates use the research and computing facilities of the center, participate in its scientific programs, and shape research directions to be undertaken at CAMS. In the course of their research work, they interact with AUB faculty and students, and typically give seminars and workshops.
