Join us at Reed College in Portland, Oregon on Saturday, April 9, 2011 for the third annual Northwest Undergraduate Mathematics Symposium.

The Reed Mathematics Department invites all mathematics students in the Pacific Northwest to present their work at NUMS this spring.   If you have done independent mathematical projects, REUs, or have results from competitions, please sign up to speak.  Talks may be short (10 mins) or long (25 mins), and there will also be a poster session.  First-year graduate students are welcome to present research completed while still undergraduates.  

Invited address: Professor Naiomi Cameron of Lewis and Clark College will give this year's invited address: Combinatorial Enumeration with the Riordan Group.
