Conferences

Here are some upcoming conferences that students and faculty may consider attending.

Southeastern Conference for Undegraduate Women in Mathematics (October 26-27, 2013)
The goal of this conference is to increase retention of women in mathematics by giving female undergraduates and first year graduate students in mathematics a forum to present research they conducted while undergraduates.  The conference organizers welcome contributed twenty minute talks from any female undergraduate/first year graduate student in mathematics at your institution that has conducted undergraduate research.  There may also be an opportunity for a poster session for those not wishing to give talks (provided there is enough interest in such a session.)  In addition to the contributed talks, there will be plenary addresses by Suzanne Lenhart of the University of Tennessee and Julianna Tymoczko of Smith College.  The conference will also host a panel to discuss issues related to graduate school such as picking the correct one, how to find an advisor, how to excel in graduate school, etc.

Mid-Hudson Mathematics Conference for Undergraduates 2013 (November 2, 2013)
The fourth Mid-Hudson Mathematics Conference for Undergraduates will be held on Saturday, November 2, 2013 at Bard College. This one-day conference will consist of 20 minute presentations by undergraduate mathematics students, panels on graduate school in mathematics and REU programs, and a plenary address by Sam Vandervelde of St. Lawrence University.

The Nebraska Conference for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics (January 31-February 2, 2014)
At NCUWM, undergraduate women in the mathematical sciences meet other women with similar interests and share their research experiences. It would be a great help to us if you will print and post the attached poster in your department. The conference is  January 31-February 2, 2014, hosted by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and held at the Embassy Suites in downtown Lincoln. It brings together outstanding undergraduate female mathematicians from across the country and is open to undergraduate female mathematicians at all stages of their careers. Those who have already done research will be given an opportunity to present their results as either a talk or a poster. Indeed, the main program of the conference is presentations by undergraduate women on their own research. Two leading mathematicians, Cynthia A. Phillips and Gigliola Staffilani, will give plenary addresses. Registration opens Oct. 2 for presenters and Oct. 9 for non-presenters.

Nebraska IMMERSE (June 9-July 14, 2014)
Nebraska IMMERSE (Intensive Mathematics: a Mentoring, Education, and Research Summer Experience) is a six-week summer program to help such students make the transition from undergraduate to graduate work, and also developing the teaching, research and mentoring skills of early-career faculty. It is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation's EMSW21 initiative. The core of the program consists of two intensive courses in algebra and analysis at the advanced-undergraduate/beginning-graduate level, each organized around a research paper. The students will receive room, board, a travel allowance, and a $3,600 stipend. Applications are due on March 15, 2014, with notification in early April.
