MAA Contributed Poster Sessions

Session I: Thursday, August 1, 10:00 a.m. - 10:45 a.m., Duke Energy Convention Center, Grand Ballroom B
Session II: Thursday, August 1, 3:00 p.m. - 3:45 a.m., Duke Energy Convention Center, Grand Ballroom B
Session III: Friday, August 2, 1:30 p.m. - 2:15 p.m., Duke Energy Convention Center, Grand Ballroom B


Given last year’s success with the MAA Contributed Poster Session (CPS), the MAA is pleased to continue with this session at MathFest 2019 in Cincinnati. We will rotate the poster categories throughout the meeting and the number of rotations will depend on the number of accepted posters. The MAA will provide corkboards or trifolds for the posters – you just need to bring your poster.

Please consult this year's Call for Posters for more information on the sessions in general, and what to expect for submitting and preparing presentations


PosterFest 2019: Scholarship by Early Career Mathematicians

Friday, August 2, 3:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m., Duke Energy Convention Center, Grand Ballroom B


This poster session and networking event allows early career mathematicians to present and discuss their scholarly activities with senior mathematicians in an informal atmosphere. Untenured faculty and graduate students are especially encouraged to apply. Examples of scholarly activities suitable for this poster session include expository work, preliminary reports, scholarship of teaching and learning, and research reports. Please note that undergraduate submissions will not be accepted. Alternate opportunities for undergraduate students are available and can be found on the conference website. Questions regarding this session should be sent to the organizers.

PIC Math prepares mathematical sciences students for industrial careers by engaging them in research problems that come directly from industry. In this session students who participated in PIC Math will give talks and poster presentations about their research, and mathematicians in industry will talk about what it is like to work in industry and what students need to do to succeed.

  • 8:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.: Eight students talks at 15-minute intervals
  • 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.: Two mathematicians from industry speak in 30-minute intervals
  • 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.: Break
  • 12:00 p.m. - 1:15 p.m.: PIC Math student poster session

Sponsors: PIC Math is an MAA program that is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF grant DMS-1722275) and the National Security Agency (NSA).
