Pi Day - Northern California Undergraduate Mathematics Conference

Who is invited?  
Undergraduate students and faculty from Northern California and 
Southern Oregon universities, colleges and community colleges. 
Please complete our registration form



Why come?  
The Northern California Undergraduate Mathematics Conference showcases the achievements of undergraduate students in mathematics and gives aspiring mathematicians an opportunity to present their work in a very supportive environment. Student talks range from expository presentations to original undergraduate research. Students may also talk about their independent study projects and other independent work that goes beyond the standard course curriculum.  Students are encouraged to participate and give 15 minute presentations on any area of mathematics, including applications to other disciplines.  While we hope that many students will give  talks, we welcome all students and faculty to attend.  For examples of student talks, read the programs from past conferences.

Key Note Address:
Federico Ardila of San Francisco State University will speak about Tiling in Combinatorics, Algebra and Geometry. Tilings are the starting point for many beautiful problems, surprising results and unexpected connectios with problems in algebra, geometry, number theory and physics. This talk will present a colorful selection of examples.
