Indiana MAA Fall 2018 Chair’s Statement
I hope you've had a relaxing and productive summer! Our Indiana Section fall meeting
will be Saturday, Oct. 13
at Hanover College. We're looking forward to an engaging program. The invited speakers are Dr. Emilie Purvine, Pacific Northwest National Lab, and Dr. Jacqueline Jensen-Vallin, Lamar University and Editor of MAA FOCUS newsmagazine. Dr. Purvine will talk about "How can mathematicians help advance cybersecurity?" and "Applications of topology for information fusion"; this will be a great opportunity to learn more about mathematical work outside of academia. Dr. Jensen-Vallin's talk is entitled "Let’s Get Knotty"; this will be a fantastic time to interact with one of the MAA magazine editors. Please consider inviting your colleagues and students to join us there!
Our MAA Section meetings provide a welcoming place for both students and faculty to give talks on their work. Please consider contributing a presentation. A call for papers, meeting registration form, conference poster, and information on lodging & directions are online. The deadline for submission of a contributed talk is Friday, Sept. 21.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Andy Rich, Manchester University, for his excellent job as Chair of the section last year. Under his leadership, we all enjoyed two wonderful meetings: the Fall 2017 meeting at Manchester University and the Spring 2018 Tri-Section Meeting at Valparaiso University. My thanks also goes to the executive board for their outstanding work: Will Turner (vice-chair), Haseeb Kazi (secretary), Josh Holden (public information officer), Alex Capaldi (outgoing treasurer), Phil Mummert (incoming treasurer), Paul Fonstad (student activities coordinator), Krysi Leganza (section MAA Congress representative). The MAA Indiana Section is in excellent shape because of the dedicated time and effort of our officers and members.
Finally, our section welcomes your feedback. Feel free to contact me at Lara.Pudwell@valpo.edu. You can also follow the Indiana Section's activities on Facebook or on Twitter @indianaMAA.
We look forward to your continued engagement throughout the coming year!
