  1. Young Mathematicians Network’s Activities at the Joint Meetings 2013 in San Diego:

    Open Forum, Thursday, 7:30 p.m.–8:30 p.m., organized by Josh Laison, Willamette University; Elizabeth Moseman, National Institute of Standards and Technology; and Thomas Wakefield, Youngstown State University. All meeting participants, especially undergraduates and graduate students, and early career mathematicians are invited to discuss topics and issues affecting young mathematicians.

    Also see details about other sessions cosponsored by the YMN in MAA Panels, etc.: Project NExT-YMN Poster Session, Wednesday, 2:15 p.m.; Published or Perished: Life After the Tenure Decision, Wednesday, 3:50 p.m.; Career Options for Undergraduate Mathematics Majors, Thursday, 9:00 a.m.; On-Campus Interview Survival Guide, Thursday, 10:35 a.m.; Graduate School: Choosing One, Getting In, Staying In, Thursday, 1:00 p.m.; and You Published Your Dissertation, Now What?, Thursday, 2:40 p.m.

  2. Mathfest 2013 activity:

    Title: Publishing your dissertation

    Organizers: Nick Scoville, Tim Goldberg and Kristine Roinestad

    Abstract: The work is all done, and now comes the fun part: publishing your dissertation. How do you break up your thesis into multiple papers? How do you determine the appropriate journal in your field to submit to? When is it appropriate to submit to a non-specialist journal? What is impact factor and mathematical citation quotient? Our panel of experts will answer these and many other questions in order to equip you to successfully publish your dissertation

  4. June 8 is the deadline to submit abstracts for PosterFest 2013: A Poster Session of Scholarship by Early Career Mathematicians and Graduate Students, to be held at Mathfest on Friday, August 2nd .

    This popular poster session provides an excellent opportunity to display your mathematical and pedagogical research. Poster sessions have the distinct advantage of allowing you to network with several members of the mathematical community in a short time, so we hope you will consider participating even if you have not presented a poster before. This session is ideal for junior faculty seeking to present at a national conference and for graduate students who will be entering the job market this fall. Examples of scholarly activities suitable for this poster session include expository work, preliminary reports, scholarship of teaching and learning, and research reports. The deadline for submissions is June 8, but we encourage you to submit your abstract as soon as possible since space is limited.

    For more details, and to submit an abstract, please visit http://www.maa.org/mathfest/panels.html#poster

    Questions should be directed to Audrey Malagon at amalagon@vwc.edu. PosterFest is sponsored by the MAA Committee on Early Career Mathematicians, Graduate Student Committee, and the Young Mathematician’s Network

    A summary of the YMN Activities at the JMM Baltimore:

    Project NExT-YMN Poster Session
    Organizers: Mike Axtell, University of St. Thomas and Kim Roth, Juniata College
    Sponsors: Young Mathematicians Network and Project NExT
    Date: Thursday, January 16, 2014 2:15 p.m.- 4:15 p.m.
    Note: The program reads, “Abstract submissions, both mathematical and pedagogical, are invited for this poster session intended to highlight the research activities of recent or future Ph.D.s in mathematics and related fields. The organizers seek to provide an open venue for people who are near completion, or have finished their graduate degrees in the last five years, to present their work and make connections with other same-stage professionals, in much the same spirit as YMN and Project NExT. To apply, send a poster abstract, when and where you have or will receive your Ph.D., and your current college or university affiliation to the organizers, Mike Axtell (maxtell@stthomas.edu) or Kim Roth (roth@juniata.edu).”
    Finding the Right Grant
    Organized by: Josh Laison, Willamette University, and Jacob White, Texas A&M University

    Date: Thursday, January 16, 2014 1:00 p.m.–2:20 p.m.

    Abstract: Are you looking for a grant, and having trouble with the application process? The focus of this panel is on finding and applying for grants, whether they be for education, travel, or research.

    Panelists: Lloyd Douglas, University of North Carolina, Greensboro; Florence Fasanelli, AAAS; Eric Gaze, Bowdoin College; and Frank Sottile, Texas A&M University, will discuss the different funding sources, as well as how to make a great application, and to avoid common pitfalls.

    Career Options for Undergraduate Mathematics Majors
    Organized by: Timothy Goldberg, Lenoir-Rhyne University, and Ralucca Gera, Naval Postgraduate School

    Date: Wednesday, January 15, 2014 2:15 p.m.–3:35 p.m.

    Abstract: There are a vast number of options available for students in today’s global market. A degree in mathematics continues to be a desirable asset, yet a common question for students to ask is “What options are available for someone with a math degree?”

    Panelists: Emily Kessler, Society of Actuaries; Rebecca Goldin, George Mason University; John Workman, the Advisory Board Company; and Kim Sacra, National Security Agency, showcase several options for career paths for students with an undergraduate degree in mathematics and will speak on their own experiences of finding a job.

    What Experiences Matter On Your Resumé?
    Organized by: Kristine Roinestad, Georgetown College, and Ralucca Gera, Naval Postgraduate School

    Date: Wednesday, January 15, 2014 3:50 p.m.– 5:10 p.m.

    Abstract: Whether you are looking for a fellowship, a scholarship, a professorship, or a job outside academia, making certain your curriculum vita (CV) stands out is critical for success. A CV is a key element of an application submission, and is an opportunity to concisely showcase your achievements and be shortlisted for an interview.

    Panelists: Michael Bardzell, Salisbury University; Derrick Stolee, Iowa State University; Steve Horton, United States Military Academy; Robert Campbell, National Security Agency; and Glenn Lilly, National Security Agency, will discuss the type of CV that makes a great first impression and grabs their attention.
