The Ohio Xi Chapter of Pi Mu Epsilon at
Youngstown State University is hosting its seventeenth annual regional Student Paper Meeting on
February, 21, 2015.
The conference begins with breakfast and registration at 8:30 and ends at approximately 2pm. The final schedule will be posted after all talks are scheduled.
Thanks to all who are attending and helping to make this a great conference!
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.
