The NYC Regional Math Alliance is organizing a one-day conference highlighting the research of students being mentored by the NYC Alliance. The conference will be held at City College of New York on Saturday, September 21st, 2019. This page will be updated as we move closer to the date of the conference.


For financial reasons, there is a limit to the number of people who can participate in the conference, so you must register to attend. In order to register, fill out this google form.


The conference will feature short contributed talks by undergraduate students, a poster session, two plenary talks and a panel discussion on preparing for graduate school. Parallel sessions for the contributed talks will bring together students and faculty with shared interests in smaller groups. The poster session will offer an opportunity for informal mathematical discussions.
