Spring Meeting:

April 20-21, 2018

University of Nebraska at Omaha.  

The keynote speaker is Michael Dorff, the department chair and professor of mathematics at Brigham Young University. He earned his Ph.D. in 1997 from the Univ. of Kentucky in complex analysis, has published about 35 refereed papers, and has given about 500 talks on mathematics. He is interested in undergraduate research, in non-academic careers in mathematics, and in promoting mathematics to the general public. He will be the next president of the Mathematical Association of America. Also, he is a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society, a Fulbright Scholar in Poland, received a national Haimo Teaching Award from the MAA, and co-directs the PIC Math (Preparation for Industrial Careers in the Mathematical Sciences). He is married with 5 daughters. In any free time he has, he enjoys reading, running, and traveling.

The keynote speaker will offer two talks: the first one on Friday evening before the banquet, and the second one on Saturday morning, the last talk of the meeting.

 Also, plan to make a presentation or have your students present at the meeting.  The topic can be your work, your students' work, new classroom methods you have tried, or anything else connected to the world of mathematics.  A call for papers will be included in the next message.
