Tapia 50th Anniversary
Conference Photo Album

On Friday and Saturday May 29-30, 2009, a mathematics conference will be held in honor of Richard Tapia's 70th birthday. On Friday, we will celebrate with an all-day conference in Duncan Hall at Rice University featuring technical talks by some of the country's premier applied mathematicians, followed by a reception and an evening banquet. On Saturday evening, the conference will culminate in a unique opportunity for students and faculty attendees to network and build community as we also recognize Jean and Richard Tapia's 50 wedding anniversary.

This program would not have been possible without the sponsorship of the Rice University Computational and Applied Mathematics Department, the Dean of Engineering, the Ken Kennedy Institute, and the Empowering Leadership Alliance.
