Tenth Annual

February 8-10, 2008

The Conference will give outstanding undergraduate women the opportunity to discuss their own research and to meet other women who share their interest in the mathematical sciences. Conference activities on Friday will occur on the university's city campus, and on Saturday and Sunday at the Lincoln Downtown Holiday Inn, a short walk from downtown Lincoln.

Conference participants will also have a chance to learn about life in graduate school from the perspective of current women graduate students representing math departments from across the country. Although we do not regard this Conference as an appropriate venue for faculty representatives to recruit applicants for their graduate programs, we would like to encourage departments to contact us about sponsoring women graduate students from their programs at the Conference.

We will regularly update this page as plans for the conference are finalized.

Last Minute Notes:
  • Please note that presentations Friday afternoon are in the UNL Student Union Audiotium, and that Friday dinner, and all the conference activities on Saturday and Sunday, are at the Lincoln Downtown Holiday Inn.

Contributed Presentations

NCUWM is a great opportunity for undergraduate women to present their mathematics research to a supportive audience. We have room in the schedule for 48 15-minute talks by undergraduate women and we have a very large capacity for poster presentations. As of December 5, the talk slots are full. We have a very lively poster session, and there are still slots available in it. If you prefer to give a talk but are willing to present a poster, we suggest that you register to present a poster but also send an email to ncuwm@math.unl.edu to let us know. If you have already registered to give a talk and are willing to present a poster instead, please let us know right away!
