The Undergraduate Mathematics Conference in Washington is aimed at providing an opportunity for undergraduate mathematics students to meet their peers, to exchange their research experiences, and to interact with other professionals in the field. This is a one-day event with presentations from students, a keynote lecture, panel discussions on careers, and a lot of opportunities to interact with other workshop participants. All students and faculty interested in the event are welcome, and please contact one of the organizers. If you are a student and wish to present your research result, please let us know as well.

Our conference series started in April 2012. It is also closely related to the CSUMS workshops organized by both the College of William and Mary and George Mason University in previous years. Support for this conference is provided by the College of William and Mary, George Mason University, the George Washington University, and the NSF grant DMS-0846477 through the MAA Regional Undergraduate Mathematics Conferences program http://www.maa.org/RUMC/.
