MAA Contributed Poster Sessions

Thursday, August 1, Duke Energy Convention Center, Grand Ballroom B
Friday, August 2, 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.

Submitting an abstract for the poster session in the areas of mathematics, pedagogy, and undergraduate mathematics curriculum is no different than when one submitted an abstract for the contributed paper session. To submit an abstract for MAA MathFest 2019, go to and follow the instructions found there. The deadline for submission of abstracts is April 30, 2019. Early submissions are encouraged. When you submit your abstract, you will be asked to place it in one of the following categories:

  • Assessment
  • History and Philosophy of Mathematics
  • Interdisciplinary Topics in Mathematics
  • Mathematics and Technology
  • Mentoring
  • Modeling and Applications
  • Outreach
  • Teaching and Learning Advanced Mathematics
  • Teaching and Learning Calculus
  • Teaching and Learning Developmental Mathematics
  • Teaching and Learning Introductory Mathematics
  • Teaching and Learning Other Mathematics
  • Algebra
  • Analysis
  • Applied Mathematics
  • Geometry
  • Graph Theory
  • Linear Algebra
  • Logic and Foundations
  • Number Theory
  • Probability and Statistics
  • Other than the above

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.

The Program Review Experience

MAA Pavilion - time and location TBA


Most mathematics departments and program across the country are now required to undergo periodic program reviews. Because there are usually large time lapses between these reviews, faculty may be new to the process and feel like undertaking the review is an overwhelming task with little reward for the effort. The posters in this session will address these concerns by having the presenters answer three questions: 1. What was the process that you implemented to complete the program review? 2. What challenges or difficulties did your program overcome in completing this process? 3. What did your program learn (and change) because of the program review? Because the presenters will be from a variety of institutions, session visitors will be able to compare and contrast the requirements and experiences of different institutions. The MAA Committee on Program Review describing its role and the resources that it has available to support the review process.
