Special Sessions:

Tuesday, March 6, 2018 and Friday, March 9, 2018

Undergraduate Research in Combinatorics and Graph Theory (Darren Narayan)

Over the past three decades there has been a dramatic increase in undergraduate research activities at colleges and universities arould the world.  In the U.S., the National Science Foundation now supports over fifty Research Experiences for Undergraduate (REU) Sites all across the nation.  Programs funded by colleges and universities have provided additional opportunities which benefit thousands of more students.  A relatively large portion of research projects stemming from these programs are in the area of combinatorics and graph theory.  Because of the nature of these fields, students have quickly reached the frontier of research and have published their results in some of the fields' most prominent research journals.

On Monday, there will be a panel discussion on undergraduate research which will discuss issues such as finding appropriate research problems for undergraduates, obtaining funding to support them, and venues for publication and presentation of results.  This will be followed by two sessions later in the week which will feature talks by undergraduates on the research they have done.  Finally, there will be an undergraduate student poster session where students can further showcase their work.
