The seventeenth conference of the Association of Christians in the Mathematical Sciences, "Seventeenth Conference of the Association of Christians in the Mathematical Sciences," held at Wheaton College May 27 - 30, 2009.
The ACMS has four purposes for impacting the lives of Christians in the mathematical sciences, each arising from and connected to our mission statement and statement of belief:
• To encourage exploration of the relationships among faith, scholarship, and teaching.
• To promote meaningful Christian interaction and relationships, providing a community in which there is no separation between faith life and professional life.
• To encourage research and writing, especially on topics exploring the relationships among faith, scholarship, and teaching.
• To promote innovative and effective teaching.
