Research by Undergraduates in Mathematics Boston University Symposium: RUMBUS 2007

Devoted to the research of undergraduates, this annual Symposium is scheduled to take place on Saturday, November 10, 2007. The Symposium is a forum for area undergraduates to come together and share their research in a poster session in addition to learning from an outstanding keynote speaker (click on this power-point slide; for MAA press coverage click here). Audience at any mathematical level, school students and teachers, college concentrators regardless of their major, postgraduates, faculty, and the interested public, is very welcome and is expected to be able to enjoy the presentations and discussions: Mathematics is the Lingua Franca of the 21st Century!

REGISTER NOW! (just click here) Registration is free but necessary to plan for breakfast, lunch and afternoon receptions.
