This workshop is to be held at The Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina located at 700 S. Florida Avenue, Tampa, Florida 33602, (813) 221-4900 This is the fifth of a series of workshops sponsored by the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute on contemporary research in mathematics, this time focusing on the structure and representation of groups: analytical, combinatorial, computational and geometric. All presentations will be expository, intended for mathematical scientists and students not necessarily working in these areas, but interested in learning about new developments and the possibility of spending some time at MSRI. Discussions about MSRI programs will include special lectures, targeting a broad audience of mathematical scientists including undergraduate and graduate students as well as different ways to be involved in the upcoming programs. This workshop will directly precede the annual meeting of the Society for the Advancement of Chicano and Native American Scientists. SACNAS members are strongly encouraged to take part in this workshop; and conversely, we anticipate that many workshop participants will remain for the annual meeting. For information on the SACNAS meeting go to www.sacnas.org. Invited Speakers Include: Reinhard Laubenbacher (Virginia Bioinformatics Institute), Jon McCammond (University of California, Santa Barbara), Arun Ram (University of Wisconsin-Madison ) , Jon Carlson (University of Georgia), Alan Reid (University of Texas, Austin), Bhama Srinivasan (University of Illinois, Chicago).
