January 29 - 31, 2016

Conference registration will open Oct. 1, 2015 at 10 a.m. Central Daylight Time (CDT) for presenters and Oct. 6 at 10 a.m. CDT for non-presenters. It is possible for conference registration to fill within the first 24 hours of general (non-presenter) registration. The student registration fee is $40 each, $50 each for faculty. For the 2016 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 will be 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 Jan. 29, 2016.

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 have already done research will be given an opportunity to present their results. 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.

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 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.
