Role of Faculty Sponsor:
In order to guarantee that all talks are delivered at a level appropriate for
a general mathematical audience containing undergraduate students and faculty,
we are requesting that each speaker have a faculty sponsor. The faculty
sponsor's role should include, but is not limited to,
- proofreading the student's abstract so it accurately reflects the talk,
- helping the student prepare by insisting that the student practice,
- and explaining to the student what it is like to give a talk at a conference.
