Reaching beyond Brown classroom standards as well as untethering the presenter from the confines of a SMART Board, this 98-seat presentation space allows mathematicians to follow their instincts and write on glass walls while projecting their work onto screens and capturing it for later student download.
Proceedings in the room can be streamed to public gathering space in the lobby by way of digital signage systems, allowing small break-out meetings around the displays. Internet Protocol (IP) video is also available for anyone on the Brown network. Video conferencing systems are provided for the seminar room – aligned with standards developed for the National Science Foundation Access Grid – enabling ICERM’s participation in the national dialogue regarding research in mathematics.
