Boston University will have its first RUMBUS on Saturday, March 22, 2003. A RUMBUS sounds, of course, like the name of a beautiful geometric figure, but it is actually the Research by Undergraduates in Mathematics Boston University Symposium, which will feature Student Talks, a PosterFest, Panel Discussions and a KeyNote Speaker of world repute. This year’s speaker is Professor Frank Morgan of Williams College (settler of the Double-Bubble Conjecture, and many things besides).
The Symposium is meant for undergraduates of the greater Boston Area and New England to come together for a day of activities, information on the profession, and relentless math fun. The symposium web page at http://math.bu.edu/people/RUMBUS03 includes a program, instructions for participation and local information.
