SUMS at JMU is a one day conference promoting undergraduate research in mathematics in the Shenandoah Valley and surrounding areas. Anyone who has done original research in mathematics while an undergraduate is invited to submit an abstract for a 15 minute talk about his or her research.

The conference will feature contributed talks by undergraduates about their research. The day will open and close with invited faculty math talks aimed at a general undergraduate math audience. A graduate school and math careers panel will be available, along with an invited talk aimed particularly at high school students..

Registration is free and open to the mathematical community, including undergraduate math students, high school students who are interested in math, high school math teachers, and faculty.  To register, please follow the link below.  The registration form contains directions for how to submit an abstract for an undergraduate research talk.

Modest travel support is available. For information about how to apply for travel funds, circle the appropriate answer on the registration form.
