Who is allowed to attend?

  • We'd love to have you! Any undergraduate student with an interest in mathematics/research mathematics is welcome to attend. We do our best to make sure talks are accessible and enjoyable for an audience with a wide range of mathematical backgrounds.

  • Mathematics faculty, post-docs, and graduate students are also welcome to attend.

When and where is the seminar?

I've never given a talk before. Can I still apply to give a talk?

  • Yes! Check out our resources on preparing a talk. Prior to the seminar, you'll be paired with a faculty or graduate student available to provide mentorship and feedback in preparing your talk. Students of all levels of experience are welcome to apply. We hope to support you in your growth as a mathematician.

I've never done research. Can I still apply to give a talk?

  • Yes! While we love to see talks on undergraduate research, expository talks on topics outside the scope of a typical undergraduate mathematics curriculum are welcome.

  • AURMS provides a chance to learn about research mathematics (and opportunities in research mathematics) at the host school.

How do I travel to another university for the seminar?

  • When a seminar location is decided, we'll provide an address and some travel info in our mailing list and on the schedule of upcoming talks. Most Atlanta colleges are easily reached via a MARTA ride. Check out our travel funding information for info on reimbursement (that's right: we'll pay for your MARTA or Uber/Lyft ride there!) Visiting another university is a great chance to network, learn about opportunities, and see what other mathematics programs are like.

What if I can't make it to the seminar in person?

  • We do our best to offer a hybrid format. Depending on what the speaker is comfortable with, we may post a recording or live-stream link. If we do, it'll appear next to the name of the talk in the list of scheduled talks.
