General Information

The second Mid-Hudson Mathematics Conference for Undergraduates will be held on Sunday, October 25, 2009 at the Gabrielle H. Reem and Herbert J. Kayden Center for Science and Computation at Bard College. This one-day conference will consist of 15 minute presentations by undergraduate mathematics students, a poster session, panels on graduate school in mathematics and REU programs, and a plenary address by Allison Pacelli of Williams College on Algebraic Number Theory: From Fermat to Function Fields.

The purpose of this conference series is to encourage students to engage in mathematical research and to connect with other mathematics students in the Mid-Hudson region of New York State. All mathematics students and faculty are welcome to attend. Undergraduates who have attended an REU program or done independent work in mathematics are invited to give a talk or present a poster. Faculty and graduate students may also give talks or present posters.

Continental breakfast, lunch, and afternoon coffee are complimentary for all participants.
