New Connections in Math @ Duke, Undergraduate Math Research Symposium

Again this year, the Duke RTG in Analysis, Probability, PDE, and Computation will sponsor an undergraduate research colloquium Oct 13-14th. More details can be found in the sample email below and the webpage referenced there. There will be talks by faculty and lots of space for undergraduates to give talks and interact. Please encourage any undergraduates you know to apply. Awarding of travel grants is rolling and getting started soon, so please encourage people to apply sooner rather than later.

Also please forward the email below to your network so that others might encourage undergraduates to apply.

New Connections in Math, Undergraduate Math Research Symposium

Date: Friday and Saturday, October 13-14, 2023
Location: Duke University, Durham, NC


New Connections in Math (NCM23) is a research symposium for undergraduate students interested in analysis, probability, PDE, computation, and applied mathematics.  Organized by faculty in the Duke Mathematics Department, the event is an opportunity for students to learn about current math research in these areas and about graduate study in math.   Participants will meet other students doing research, as well as graduate students and faculty working in analysis, probability, PDE, computation, and applications.  Students who have been involved in a summer research project or semester research project are strongly encouraged to give a short talk or present a poster about their work.   The program will include: student research talks, faculty keynote speakers, a panel discussion with grad students and faculty about opportunities for graduate study, and many opportunities to interact with other mathematicians.

There is some funding from the National Science Foundation to support undergraduate participation (travel/lodging).
