Welcome to the Undergraduate Mathematics Research Conference Puerto Rico 2015's home page!
The first annual UMaRch Conference Puerto Rico is being hosted by the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez (UPRM), on February 27, 2015. We welcome participants from institutes of higher learning and schools from all of the island. It is a one-day conference held the same day that SIDIM XXX, before the later starts. SIDIM XXX also will be host at UPRM in 2015. In this way undergraduate students will have the opportunity to interact with local and visiting faculty. Visiting faculty will have also the opportunity to enroll students for their REUs, undergraduate conferences etc. One of our original motivations was to make the month of March one of mathematical awareness on the island starting with UMaRch, follow by SIDIM and continous locally in all the centers of mathematics in the island.
UMaRch Conference Puerto Rico is designed specifically for undergraduate students in order to provide them with the opportunity to present their research in a professional environment. As a first step into the academic and professional world, the experience will be valuable for students already considering a degree, graduate studies, or career in mathematics. It will also provide helpful information and inspiration for students still undecided in their area of study.
The deadline for conference registration is February 7, 2015. Participants coming from the furthest points on the island are encouraged to register early. Lunch will be provided for all participants selected. Please see the registration link for further details.
For more information, please contact the conference co-organizers, Dr. Karen Rios-Soto (firstname.lastname@example.org), Dr. Erwin Suazo (email@example.com) and Dr. Pedro Torres (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We look forward to seeing you at UMaRch Conference Puerto Rico 2015!
