Poster Sessions

Please note: All sessions are listed in Eastern Daylight Time (EDT = UTC-4:00)

An MAA poster session allows for many people with interest in a specific topic to share their work.

MAA Contributed Poster Session

Friday, August 5, 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m., Franklin Hall A

Given previous years' success with the MAA Contributed Poster Session (CPS), the MAA is pleased to continue with this session at MathFest 2022 in Philadelphia. The MAA will provide corkboards for the posters – you just need to bring your poster.
