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 deadline for general registration, as well as talk and poster submission, is Friday, October 8 2010.
After this date, registration is still open but free lunch is not guaranteed, acceptance of talks and posters is contingent on space considerations, and abstracts of talks and posters may not be printed in the program.  To register, please follow the "Registration" sidebar link.  To contribute an undergraduate research talk, or an undergraduate research or expository poster, or a high school poster, please follow the "Contributed ..." sidebar link. 

Modest travel support is available. To apply for travel funds, follow the sidebar link to the travel support application.
