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.
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 (http://www.langorigami.com/), 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.
The Northern California Undergraduate Mathematics Conference is an MAA-RUMC sponsored activity and is partially funded by NSF grant DMS-0846477).
