19th Annual Nebraska Conference for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics | February 3-5, 2017

The 19th Annual Nebraska Conference for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics (NCUWM) will be held February 3-5, 2017. The Conference is open to outstanding undergraduate women mathematicians at all stages of their careers. Students will have the opportunity to meet other women who share their interest in the mathematical sciences, and those who already have done research will be given an opportunity to present their results.

NCUWM's overall goal is to arm participants with knowledge, self-confidence and a network of peers to help them become successful mathematicians. We do this by providing role models, insider knowledge and an opportunity to present original research. Our focus is to encourage and mentor undergraduate women to pursue graduate study in mathematics and seek mathematical careers. Conference participants also will 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.

Plenary Speakers

Dr. Brooke ShipleyProfessor and Head of the Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer ScienceUniversity of Illinois at Chicago

Registration

For the 2017 conference, the registration fee is $50 per person, for both students and faculty. Details about when registration is opening will be forthcoming.

Location

Conference activities on Friday will occur on the university’s city campus and on Saturday and Sunday at the Embassy Suites Lincoln Downtown Hotel (1040 P Street, 402-474-1111), a short walk in downtown Lincoln.

Policies

  • For the 2017 conference, students are only allowed to attend the conference once without having presented. Therefore, students who did not present when they have attended in the past must present this year before their registration is considered confirmed.
  • Each institution is limited to a maximum of six students, so coordinate registration plans with faculty advisors.
  • Due to Nebraska law and UNL policies, attendees cannot register unless they will be at least 19 years of age on or before Feb. 3, 2017.
  • 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.
