Preparing Posters and Presentations
Many conferences in the lists below have undergraduate poster or presentation sessions. For students new to poster preparation, please visit our student information and resources page and also our outstanding posters page.
Journals that Publish Undergraduate Research
The Center for Undergraduate Research in Mathematics (CURM) at Brigham Young University has a list of journals that publishes undergraduate research.
Nationwide, there are many opportunities for undergraduate mathematics students to present their research. Check out this list to get started!
MAA Regional Undergraduate Mathematics Conferences (RUMC)
The MAA, with funding from the Division of Mathematical Sciences at the National Science Foundation, provides support for institutions or groups of institutions that wish to initiate or expand undergraduate mathematics conferences designed to attract students throughout the region of the host campus.
The primary objective of the grant is to provide as many undergraduate students as possible with the opportunity to present mathematically-oriented talks and to better expand their knowledge of the wide range of theory, history, and applications of the mathematics sciences at conferences that are within their geographic region. The review committee is particularly interested in expanding the program to regions of the country that do not traditionally offer undergraduates an opportunity to give mathematical presentations.
Faculty/Administrators interested in organizing a RUMC, can find information on how to apply here: Applications.
For information on future conferences supported by the MAA RUMC program in the current academic year, see Supported Conferences.
For information on past conferences, including tips for future organizers on what works, see Past Conferences.
