Youngstown Pi Mu Epsilon Conference -- Saturday, February 22, 2014

The 15th Annual YSU Regional Pi Mu Epsilon Undergraduate Student Conference is 
Saturday, February 22, 2014

The registration form is now available from the conference website. Although it is free, you must register online:

The deadline for submitting conference registration is Wednesday, February 20, at 12:00 noon.

The conference consists of undergraduate students giving a 10-15 minute presentation on a mathematical topic that interests them. The topics of the talks are selected by the students. You can visit the website

to see the titles of the talks that were given in previous years. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, and students get to enjoy the company of peers from other schools who also enjoy mathematics. Furthermore, breakfast and lunch are on us!

We will again have a session on the COMAP Mathematical Modeling Competition. Students who have competed in COMAP discuss their solutions to the modeling problems and those who have not competed see the excitement that the competition generates.

There again will be a session on Mathematical Biology, in conjunction with YSU's continuing MBUR program (http://mbur.ysu.edu/).  Students doing projects at the intersection of Biology and Mathematics are encouraged to give a presentation.

CSU STUDENTS NOTE: There will be carpooling arranged from CSU. Contact Dr. Leah Gold, L.Gold33@csuohio.edu to arrange transportation.
