AIM Builds Research Conference Center

Published 7-11-2002

The American Institute of Mathematics (AIM) is planning a new conference center on a 190-acre site in Morgan Hill, Calif. Funded by a $5-million grant from the National Science Foundation, the AIM Research Conference Center (ARCC) will include the use of two existing buildings and renovation of another large building on the site. The architectural style for the new research center is modeled on the famous "Alhambra", the Moorish palace in Granada, Spain, renowned for its geometric proportions and mathematically intricate patterns. Once completed, ARCC will have a main lecture hall seating 100, a dining hall, an extensive library, several additional meeting rooms, and visitor accommodations. Up to 32 mathematicians will be housed on-site during each workshop, developing advanced mathematical tools.
