SUMS at JMU is an annual conference promoting undergraduate research in mathematics, statistics, and their applications. It features contributed undergraduate research talks, invited talks aimed at a general undergraduate math audience, a poster session, and panels about graduate school, undergraduate research, and math careers.  

Anyone who has done original research in mathematics or statistics while an undergraduate is invited to contribute a 15 minute talk about his or her work. Undergraduate and high school students are invited to present research or expository posters on any mathematical topic. 

Registration is free and open to the mathematical community, including undergraduate, high school, and graduate math students, high school math teachers, and faculty. 

Support for past SUMS provided by the College of Science and Mathematics at James Madison University, the College of Integrated Science and Engineering at JMU the Center for STEM Education and Outreach at JMU, JMU's General Education Program, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at JMU, the Office of Access and Inlusion, Pi Mu Epsilon, the Mathematics and Statistics Club, and James Madison University.
