USTARS 2019 Accepting Student Applications

April 26-28, 2019
Ames, Iowa

We are excited to announce that the ninth annual Underrepresented Students in Topology and Algebra Research Symposium will be hosted by Iowa State University, April 26-28, 2019. USTARS is an annual conference where students at all stages in their research present their work and form research and social support networks with other mathematicians with related research and professional interests. Presenters at USTARS give 30-minute research talks on various topics in the fields of topology and algebra. Two graduate students are chosen to give 1-hour presentations as the Distinguished Graduate Students (DGS). As this year’s Invited Faculty Speaker, Dr. Minerva Catral (Xavier University) will give the keynote address. This symposium provides an invaluable opportunity for students who have not yet chosen a research topic, or have switched areas of study, to learn about potential research topics. In addition to the student lectures, a poster session highlights undergraduate research, and an early-career faculty development workshop precedes the symposium.

Application Deadline: February 1, 2019
