Held early each January in partnership with the American Mathematical Society, the Joint Mathematics Meetings is the largest annual mathematics meeting in the world — attendance in 2013 was an incredible 6600! The program provides plentiful opportunities to engage with your fellow mathematicians and learn about innovative research in your interest areas, including numerous invited addresses, minicourses, short courses, panel sessions, workshops, paper sessions, posters, exhibits, and more.
The MAA presents Contributed Paper Sessions on a variety of topics at every Joint Mathematics Meeting.The deadline for abstracts is Tuesday, September 16, 2014.
Monday, January 12, 2015, 4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m., GCC Exhibit Hall D, GCC
Organizer: Joyati Debnath, Winona State University
Description: This session features research done by undergraduate students. First-year graduate students are eligible to present if the research was done while they were still undergraduates. Research done by high school students can be accepted if the research was conducted under the supervision of a faculty member at a post-secondary institution.
Appropriate poster material includes, but is not limited to: a new result, a new proof of a known result, a new mathematical model, an innovative solution to a Putnam problem, or a method of solution to an applied problem. Purely expository material is not appropriate for this session.
Students should submit an abstract describing their research in 250 words or less by midnight, October 11, 2014. Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent by November 1, 2014. See this page for further details and a link to the abstract submission form.
Posters will be judged during the session and award certificates will be mailed to presenters with the highest scores. Trifold, self-standing 48" by 36" tabletop poster boards will be provided. Additional materials and equipment are the responsibility of the presenters. Participants must set up posters between 2:30 and 3:30 p.m. and must be available from 3:30 to 6:00 p.m. for judging and public viewing. Judges results will be available at the MAA Pavilion in the Exhibit Hall the following day until the exhibits close.
