Free Problem-Solving Workshops at Salt Lake City AIChE Meeting

Polymath Software is celebrating twenty years of providing Educational 
Site Licenses to academic departments that are available through the 
CACHE Corporation.  Currently about 120 universities/departments use 
these site licenses. The authors of Polymath are also receiving the 
"Himmelblau Award" from the CAST Division of AIChE at the Salt Lake 
City Annual Meeting "for the continued development and widespread 
dissemination of POLYMATH for computer-based chemical engineering 
education."

On the Sunday November 7th of the Salt Lake City Annual Meeting, 
Polymath Software is providing several events that may be of interest to 
you and/or your fellow faculty members and departmental 
graduate students interested in teaching careers.  All of the events 
listed below (except AIChE Reception) will take place at the Delta 
Room (just above the lobby) of the Peery Hotel on Sunday afternoon 
November 7th.  The Peery Hotel is located one block south of the 
Convention Center at 110 West Broadway (300 South).

2-4 pm - Informal discussions with the Polymath Authors, Mordechai 
Shacham of the Ben-Gurion University and Michael B. Cutlip of the 
University of Connecticut.  Details will be given regarding the new 
Polymath 7 that is currently under development.  Also the capabilities of 
the Polymath Interface to the DIPPR Database will be discussed that 
will bring thermophysical properties of ~ 2000 compounds directly into 
Polymath, Excel and MATLAB problem solving. Bring along your 
difficult problems, challenging questions and suggestions for needed 
capabilities.

4-6 pm - Introductory Hands-On Overview Workshop.  
Review/learn/use the capabilities of Polymath including export to Excel 
and MATLAB.  Bring your laptop (plug strips provided) or just observe.  
You will be provided with a free Departmental Site License (through 
September 2011) for the Educational Version of Polymath Software for 
yourself and all the faculty, students and computer labs in your 
academic department.  A free DVD with all materials and access to a 
special website will be provided to participants.

6:30-8 pm - Welcoming AIChE reception which goes from 6:30 - 8:00. 
(Experience shows that one should arrive at 6:30 for the AIChE 
Reception to assure a good selection of food items.)

8-10 pm - Introductory Hands-On Overview Workshop.  This will be a 
repeated offering of the 4-6 pm workshop.

Workshop participants are requested to send an e-mail to Mike Cutlip 
at  [log in to unmask] and indicate attendance at either the 4 
pm or 8 pm workshop. Walk-up participation is also encouraged. Mike 
can be contacted with any questions that you may have.

Please forward this to colleagues and graduate students who may be 
interested.  Thank you...
