Nebraska Conference for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics
January 26, 2018 - January 28, 2018
The 20th Annual Nebraska Conference for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics (NCUWM) will be held January 26-28, 2018. 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. 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.
Students interested in attending the 2018 conference must complete an application between October 3 and October 10, 2017.
