SUMS at JMU
is an annual one day conference promoting
undergraduate research in mathematics, statistics, and their
applications. The
conference will feature contributed undergraduate
research talks, invited talks aimed at a general undergraduate math
audience, a poster session, a graduate school and math careers panel,
and a math competition workshop for high school students. Anyone
who has done original research in
mathematics
or statistics
while an undergraduate is invited to contribute a 15 minute
talk about his or her research. Undergraduate and high school students
are invited to present research or expository posters on any
mathematical
topic.
Registration is free and
open to the mathematical community, including undergraduate, high
school, and graduate math
students, high school
math teachers, and faculty. The general registration deadline is
October 13. After October 13th, registration
is still open, but free lunch is not
guaranteed, acceptance of talks is contingent on space considerations,
and abstracts of talks and posters may not be printed in the
program. To
register, please
follow the sidebar link. The registration form contains
directions
for
how
to submit an abstract for an undergraduate research
talk or for a poster.
Modest travel support is available. For information about how to apply
for travel funds, circle the appropriate answer on the registration
form.
