Contributed Paper Sessions for Spring 2020 MAA-NJ/MATYCNJ Meeting:

We are seeking abstracts for review for the Contributed Paper Sessions (CPS)
for the Spring 2020 MAA/MATYCNJ meeting.

There will be two special contributed paper sessions at the Spring 2020 Meeting.

General Contributed Paper Session:
MAA Contributed Paper Session (CPS) may focus on any aspect of mathematics.
Examples include expository mathematics, connections within mathematics or between
mathematics and other disciplines, the undergraduate mathematics curriculum, or
mathematical pedagogy. The CPS committee seeks and encourages proposals that will
contribute toward a well-balanced and scholarly program that represents the MAA’s mission.
Please send the title and abstract to the Chair of the CPS Committee at

The CPS committee will be reviewing abstracts submitted for consideration on or before
Friday, Feb 28. Please include in the subject of the email:
Contributed Paper Session Spring 2020 along with your name.

Lunch Table Discussion Topics for the Spring 2020 MAA-NJ/MATYCNJ Meeting:
Lunch table conversations are intended to provide an opportunity for people to meet
with other colleagues from around the region to discuss topics that interest them while
they eat. This allows our members to speak in an informal setting on topics of interest
beyond the talks.

MAA or MATYCNJ members interested in leading a Lunch Table Discussion at the Spring 2020 meeting
are asked to submit their proposals to Kathy Turrisi at:
Kathy.turrisi@centenaryuniversity.edu by Friday, February 28, 2020.

The Garden State Undergraduate Mathematics Conference is held in conjunction with the MAA-NJ
Spring Meeting. It includes poster and oral presentation sessions for undergraduate students,
as well as a team mathematics-problem competition. To volunteer, contact:
