The Gonzaga University Center for Evolutionary Algorithms

Promising undergraduates have the opportunity to assist faculty in their research. Faculty research interests include remote sensor networks, wireless mobile networks, robotics, genetic algorithms, speech recognition, mathematical modeling, scientific data management, database systems, cloud computing, and computer security. The Department of Computer Science is also a joint participant, along with Mathematics and Civil Engineering, in the Gonzaga University Center for Evolutionary Algorithms (GUCEA).

GUCEA has presented student-assisted research at international conferences in Europe and the United States. Select students can participate in these and other projects through GUCEA, the Intel Corporation Computational Sciences Laboratory, the Sensor Networks and Robotics Laboratory, or directly with a faculty mentor.

Mathematical Associations

The Gonzaga University Mathematics Department actively participates in key mathematical associations' activities.  Associations such as the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), the American Mathematical Society (AMS), and Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).

  • Conferences

    • Pacific Northwest Mathematical Association of America 2013 Section Meeting

    • Gonzaga University sent a delegation of eleven students to this year’s Pacific Northwest MAA meeting at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon in April 2013. This year’s group included five student presenters. This is the second year we have brought a large group of students to the regional MAA meeting. Attending this conference is a tradition we hope to continue in the years to come.
