New Date

    April 10, 2010 
    8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.         

    San Jose State University
    San Jose, CA

Who is invited?
    Undergraduate students and faculty from Northern California and Southern Oregon universities, colleges and community colleges.

Why come?
    The main focus of this conference is to showcase the achievements of undergraduate students in mathematics and to give these aspiring mathematicians an opportunity to present their work in a very supportive environment. Student talks range from expository presentations to original undergraduate research. Students may also talk about their independent study projects as well as other independent work that goes beyond the standard course curriculum.  Students are encouraged to participate and give 15 minute presentations on any area of mathematics, including applications to other disciplines.  While we hope that many students will give  talks, we welcome all students and faculty to attend.  For examples of student talks,  read the programs from past conferences.

    A panel of professional mathematicians will discuss career options for mathematics majors.  The conference will conclude with a special lecture by  Robert Lang (, entitled “From Flapping Birds to Space Telescopes: The Modern Science of Origami”.

Should I register?
    Yes. Registration is free.   Lunch and light refreshments will be provided to all registered attendees.  We are asking all attendees to register by April 6.
