The Ohio Xi Chapter of Pi Mu Epsilon at Youngstown State University is hosting its fifteenth annual regional Conference

February 23, 2013.

2013 Conference Program

WE HAVE MOVED. Consequently, both location and parking will be different this year. Please PARK in the gravel lot directly underneath (that is, south) of Williamson Hall (where the conference is being held). The gravel lot is not marked, but there will be an attendant there in a white truck with a flashing light who will help you. See the map here.

The meeting will give undergraduate and high school students the opportunity to present results of their projects and research, and to listen to topics that are of interest to other students in our region. Any topic in undergraduate mathematics that is likely to be of interest to other undergraduate mathematics students is appropriate, be it in history, education, research, or anything between. We are scheduling the talks for 15 minutes each with five minutes between talks. Each student giving a talk should list a faculty advisor, primarily for ease of communication.

We are inviting all Pi Mu Epsilon Chapters that lie within three hours drive of Youngstown, as well as a number of other schools in the region that we know have interest in undergraduate student research. There is no intention to be selective, however, so if you know of someone who would like to attend, please do not hesitate to contact us so that we can invite them.

The National Science Foundation Regional Mathematics Conferences (NSF-RUMC) Grant Committee is supporting our conference this year (NSF Grant DMS-0846477). We have a limited amount of travel funding available. If you are in need of travel assistance, please contact Thomas Wakefield as soon as possible.

If you plan to come to our conference, please register (even if you are not giving a presentation). Your registration helps us determine how many materials are needed. Thanks!

Due to the funding received by NSF grant DMS-0846477 and the generosity of the YSU Department of Mathematics and Statistics, there will be no registration fee for this event.
