Undergraduate and Graduate Student Posters in Mathematics at the 2008 National SACNAS Conference

Undergraduate and graduate students presented posters in mathematics at the 2008 SACNAS National Conference. The poster award winners in Mathematics were Gina Maria Pomann, College of New Jersey (award sponsored by the Society for Industrial & Applied Mathematics), Alex Washburne, University of New Mexico (award sponsored by the Society for Industrial & Applied Mathematics), and Justin Walbeck & Timothy Clinton, Tulane University (Marta Contreras Memorial Award). The presentations were in the exhibit hall, where fellow students, mathematicians, judges, other scientists and exhibitors could view the posters. The AMS Public Awareness Office provided a packet of math resources and a gift to each presenter. See the list of the 2008 posters.
