I have created this web page to help in the distribution of information that might be of use to people who are directing undergraduate conferences in mathematics, and particularly those that are supported in part by the NSF grant DMS-0241090.
I expect to be entering material in .PDF format, since this permits me to enter technical material in a format that can be read and printed without the use of the technical programs that have created the files. A .PDF file can be viewed using Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is downloadable form Adobe. Click the button to link to the site that will provide you with a free copy of Adobe
The conferences funded from NSF grant DMS-0241090 are available at the MAA site .
Here are a couple lists of instructions for students that I created a while ago for the YSU Conference. I have included a PDF Student Monitors file and a plain AMSTeX Student Monitors file that tell the students generally what to expect and do at the conference. The second files are specific instructions for all the meeting preparations. These are in the files PDF Meeting Instructions and AMSTeX Meeting Instructions. There is also a schedule of advertising, etc for the conference.
One things we have found to be useful is to compile a list of e-mail addresses of students attending the conference. We have our student group send them all thank you letters after the conference, individually addressed, and send all but seniors notification of next year's conference in addition to sending notices to faculty.
If you have information of this type that you would be willing to share, please send it to me and I will post it here.
