With funding from the National Security Agency (NSA), the AMS organized the “Promoting Undergraduate Research in Mathematics” (PURM) conference, by bringing together a diverse group of people who are actively involving undergraduates in research programs of all types, in order that they might share their experiences and explore ways of creating more such opportunities, with the goal of bringing the most talented students into research level mathematics.
The proceedings volume for the PURM conference was published in June, 2007 and is available as a PDF document: Proceedings of the Conference on Promoting Undergraduate Research in Mathematics. Pending availability, a free printed copy can be requested by sending name and complete college/university mailing address to the AMS (see link, below).
About the Beacon Conference http://www.beaconconference.org/index.html
The Beacon Conference was established in 1993 to recognize, celebrate, and showcase the academic achievements of outstanding students at community colleges in the mid-Atlantic region. The conference is held each year on the first Friday in June, and it encompasses a wide range of disciplines (see “Beacon 2016 Submission Guidelines“).
Students work with faculty mentors from their colleges to prepare and submit research papers that demonstrate outstanding scholarship and originality. Submitted papers are then read and ranked by community college professors with expertise in a particular discipline. The top three papers in each panel are selected for presentation at the conference. Student presentations on each panel are judged on originality and quality of research, written work, and oral presentation by a judge from a four-year college or an expert from a renowned institution in the field. The judge for each panel chooses the most outstanding presenter. Outstanding presenters and their faculty mentors are recognized at the closing session of the conference, and each receive $100 awards.
Beacon 2016 will be held on Friday, June 3 at Bergen Community College in Paramus, NJ.
