Meetings and Conferences for Students

The MAA is involved with a variety of mathematics meetings and conferences, many of which have opportunities for students to participate in various sessions and present their research.

National Meeting:

MathFest is a national meeting run by the MAA in early August each year, and it places a special emphasis on student participation. Both the MAA and Pi Mu Epsilon sponsor undergraduate student paper sessions, and prizes are awarded for the best papers. There are also lectures, workshops, a problem solving competition, and a reception for students.

MAA Section meetings:

In addition, regional MAA Section meetings welcome student participation, with many Sections scheduling student paper sessions and holding special student paper or poster competitions. Find out which section you are in and go to that section's website to find out more about that section's meetings.
