Save the date! The 11th MSU Student Mathematics Conference will be held on Saturday, April 12th, 2014.
Students at all levels are invited to make short (15-20 minute) presentations. Presentations can be about any mathematical topic of interest - for example, a special mathematics project (perhaps from a class, an industrial math project, thesis work, or actuarial internship), approaches to an open problem, mathematics learned during an REU, a special research project done as a PA, a particularly interesting solution to an intriguing math problem (e.g., a former Herzog or Putnam problem, etc. Both individual and team presentations are encouraged.
If you are interested in presenting, please e-mail Tsveta Sendova (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday, February 21. Please include a short line or two describing the topic you are presently considering. (It is fine if you are unsure at this point.) Please copy Prof. Wald (email@example.com) in your e-mail. We will continue to consider submissions on a rolling basis after this date. The conference is a whole day event, featuring many student presentations and a fun team problem solving competition. Everyone is welcome to come for any part of it. Come give a short talk or listen to your friends present or cheer a team on!
