Underrepresented Students in Topology and Algebra Research Symposium (USTARS)

Month: April 2014

Date: April 11--13

Name: Underrepresented Students in Topology and Algebra Research Symposium (USTARS)

Location: UC Berkeley, Berkeley, California.


Description

Underrepresented Students in Topology and Algebra Research Symposium (USTARS) creates a venue where Algebra and Topology graduate students from underrepresented groups present their work and form research and social support networks with other mathematicians with related research interests. This event is a two-day research symposium which will consist of underrepresented speakers giving 30-minute research talks. These talks will run in parallel sessions and will be divided by topics based on a broad definition of Algebra and Topology. In addition, two distinguished graduate students and one invited faculty mentor will each give one-hour talks and there will be a research poster session featuring invited undergraduate students. The event will close with a panel discussion addressing critical transitions of undergraduate and graduate students.
