26th Annual RHIT Undergraduate Mathematics Conference: March 27th and 28th, 2009

The Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology Undergraduate Mathematics Conference is a two-day mathematics conference held annually each spring since 1983. It is attended by students and faculty from various universities and colleges primarily in Indiana and its surrounding states, but also from other states and countries. The conference features 20 minute talks by students in addition to three longer addresses by invited speakers. The invited speakers this year are mathematicians Dr. Christine Stevens from Saint Louis University and Dr. Kelly Black of Union College. Undergraduate students at all levels are invited to discuss their independent work in any area associated with mathematics, its applications, history, philosophy, or pedagogy.

Undergraduates are welcome to submit abstracts of their talks anytime from now until March 23, 2009. Faculty are encouraged to suggest to their students that the undergraduate mathematics conference at Rose-Hulman would be an appropriate place to present a talk.

The 20 minute talks (please see SPEAKER GUIDELINES) could include (but are not limited to) topics from algebra, calculus, geometry, history of mathematics, philosophy of mathematics, graph theory, or mathematical modeling. Please look at the Conference History to see the titles and abstracts of previous talks. There is no registration fee for those students presenting talks and free housing will be provided for all students attending the conference.

We are also requesting that each presenter have a faculty sponsor. Students wishing to present a talk should electronically mail the title, a brief abstract, and the sponsor's name to mathconf@rose-hulman.edu no later than Monday, March 23, 2009. When making a submission, please include any requests for special equipment. Available in every classroom is a transparency projector, an LCD projector that can be connected to a laptop PC, and a whiteboard.
