MAA-SIAM-AMS Hrabowski-Gates-Tapia-McBay Session, organized by Carrie Diaz Eaton, Bates College; Wednesday, 9:00–10:20 a.m. This year the session will consist of a lecture from 9:00–9:50 am given by Erica Graham, Bryn Mawr, title to be announced, and a short panel discussion, title to be announced, from 9:50–10:20 a.m. Panelists to be announced.
MAA Townhall: Ethics and Mathematical Practices, organized by Catherine Buell, Fitchburg State University, Victor I. Piercey, Ferris State University, and Rochelle E. Tractenberg, Georgetown University; Wednesday, 2:15-3:35 p.m. While mathematicians have sometimes prided themselves on a sense of intellectual abstraction, recent scandals and international-interdisciplinary conversations around ethical uses of data force mathematicians to consider what “ethical practice” looks like in their profession. During this event, we will discuss how we might leverage guidelines for ethical practice of related professions, such as statistics and computing, and what additional ethical considerations might arise from dimensions that are specific to the mathematics profession. This conversation will form a foundation for further work on developing or revising ethical guidelines for mathematicians. Funded by NSF DRL 2024227.
Committee for Minority Participation in Mathematics (CMPM) Virtual Collaboration Hour, organized by Carrie Diaz Eaton, Bates College; Wednesday, 3:45–5:05 p.m. Join the Committee for Minority Participation in Mathematics (CMPM) to discuss concerns, updates, and develop possible collaborations. Representatives of the CMPM will be available to answer questions and give updates, and collaborating committees are welcome to share updates on work related to CMPM. All are invited, particularly members of our underserved communities, to bring concerns or new ideas to the committee. Sponsored by MAA Committee for Minority Participation in Mathematics
MAA Student Poster Session, organized by Chasen Smith, Georgia Southern University, and Eric Ruggieri, College of the Holy Cross; January 6-9, 2021. This session features research done by undergraduate students. First-year graduate students are eligible to present if their research was completed while they were still undergraduates. Research by high school students can be accepted if the research was conducted under the supervision of a faculty member at a post-secondary institution.
Appropriate content for a poster includes, but is not limited to, a new result, a new proof of a known result, a new mathematical model, an innovative solution to a Putnam problem, or a method of solution to an applied problem. Purely expository material is not appropriate for this session.
Participants should submit an abstract describing their research in 250 words or less by midnight, Friday, November 6, 2020. Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent in late November. See www.maa.org/programs/students/undergraduate-research/jmm-student-poster-session for further information on what should be included in the abstract ,a link to the abstract submission form, and for any other changes.
Posters will be judged during the session and feedback from these judges will be available at the conclusion of the conference. The sessions will also be open to all registered participants of the meeting, so that friends, colleagues, and advisors can view your work. Questions regarding this session should be directed to Eric Ruggieri at firstname.lastname@example.org and Chasen Smith at email@example.com. This session is sponsored by the MAA Committee on Undergraduate Students (CUS)
