Youngstown Pi Mu Epsilon Conference [Saturday, February 24, 2018]

The conference consists of undergraduate and high school students giving a 10-15 minute presentation on a mathematical topic that interests them. The topics of the talks are selected by the students. A primary objective is to give students the opportunity of presenting a technical talk to their peers. This is a skill that almost all students will need during their lifetime.  The conference provides a good opportunity to gain this experience and learn from the presentations of others. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, and students get to enjoy the company of peers from other schools who also enjoy mathematics. Furthermore, free breakfast and lunch provided! 

For more details and to register visit the conference website.
Registration is free, but everyone must register to attend. The deadline for submitting conference registration (and talks) is Wednesday, February 21, 2018, at 12:00 noon.
