More than 50 of the region’s top math students will present their work at the Northern California Undergraduate Mathematics Conference hosted at California State University, Chico on Saturday, April 20, from 9:15 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

In its ninth year, the conference will showcase both original research and expository presentations by undergraduate students from seven regional universities, colleges and community colleges, including CSU, Chico. Presentations run about 15 minutes and may be on any area of mathematics, including applications to other disciplines.

Stanford University mathematics professor and former professional magician Persi Diaconis will keynote the conference with his address, “The Mathematics of Coincidence,” and a panel of math professionals will share insights into preparing for a career in math.

Students and faculty across all disciplines are invited to attend the free conference. This year marks the first time that CSU, Chico will host the event.
