CMC3 invites community college mathematics students to participate in student poster session at our Fall conference. We encourage all types of posters that present some aspect of mathematics (math history, math education, problem solving, mathematical modeling, algebra, calculus, topology, statistics, etc), and provide these guidelines for your poster and information on how they will be judged.
A $150 scholarship is awarded for each student poster entry presented at the Fall Conference; $150 to each single student presenter or $75 to each pair of student presenters. Additional scholarships will be awarded to the winning poster(s).
Presenters are to set up their poster at 9 am on the Saturday of the conference and remove their poster between 3 pm and 5 pm the same day. Student presentations will occur between 10:30 and 11:30 am in Regency V and awards announced before the keynote. Tables will be provided to hold stand-alone posters. If you wish to present your poster on an easel, please plan to bring the easel and backing. Once the application is submitted, applicants and their sponsors will be contacted with additional information about when and where they will present their poster to conference attendees.
Students are limited to two student presenters per entry and lunch will be provided to all applicants. Additional lunches may be purchased at the regular conference rate (currently $60 per lunch, payable in advance or at the conference). Please indicate any additional lunches in the form below. Student presenters will need to have a faculty sponsor who attends the conference. The faculty sponsor is responsible for their own conference registration.
