Conferences we host at JMU

The Department of Mathematics and Stastitics is proud to have hosted a major undergraduate research conference at JMU since 2005. Students and faculty from over 30 institutions across Virginia, surrouding states, and around the country visit JMU each fall for the Shenandoah Valley Undergraduate Mathematics and Statistics (SUMS) Conference. The SUMS Conference 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. Students at JMU can present their own research work at SUMS, and all JMU students are welcome to attend.
