PosterFest 2017: An MAA Networking Event
Friday, July 28, 3:30 p.m. - 5:00p.m., Exhibit Hall
This poster session will allow early career mathematicians to present and discuss their scholarly activities and to network with senior mathematicians in an informal atmosphere. Untenured faculty and graduate students are especially encouraged to apply. Examples of scholarly activities suitable for this poster session include expository work, preliminary reports, scholarship of teaching and learning, and research reports. Presenters should have their materials prepared in advance and will be provided with a self-standing, trifold tabletop poster approximately 48 in wide by 36 in high. Proposals should be submitted at www.maa.org/mathfest/abstracts. In the proposal, presenters should indicate their status as early career mathematicians (i.e. graduate student, junior faculty, etc.) Questions regarding this session should be sent to the organizers.

PIC Math Student Presentations
Saturday, July 29, 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m., International Ballroom South
During the spring 2017 semester, mathematical sciences undergraduate students at 67 U.S. universities and colleges were enrolled in a PIC Math (Preparation for Industrial Careers in Mathematical Sciences) industrial mathematics and statistics research course. Each student team worked on a research problem, which came directly from industry, and submitted a written report and video solution to the problem to the PIC Math student research competition. Students will give poster presentations of their research work and solutions PIC Math is a program of the MAA and SIAM supported by NSF funding. See http://www.maa.org/picmath for more information about PIC Math.
