JMM is the largest annual mathematics meeting in the world, and offers a variety of sessions that are designed to appeal to undergraduates. Complete program and registration information is available on the official JMM website.
The MAA Undergraduate Student Poster Session started very modestly at the beginning of 1990 with fewer than fifteen student projects. It now showcases more than 300 projects, and continues to grow each year.
There are over 200 professional mathematicians participating on the judging panel, so this is a great opportunity to get your work noticed by leaders in your field.
