We invite you to join us at the Annual Conference of Pi Mu Epsilon to be
held in conjunction with the MAA MathFest
in
** if they complete the PME Speaker/Delegate application in addition to** registering for MathFest with the MAA. We can reimburse transportation expenses up to $600 each for one or two student speakers from each Pi Mu Epsilon Chapter. If more than two speakers come from the same chapter, the maximum reimbursement is $600 per speaker with a maximum total reimbursement of $1200 for the chapter. If no one from your chapter
plans on giving a paper, we can fund up to half (with a maximum of $300) of the
transportation expenses for one delegate. To qualify for the reimbursement you
must attend the full meeting of Pi Mu Epsilon from the PME-MAA Student
Reception to the conclusion of the Frame Lecture, unless you obtain written permission for an exemption from the President of Pi Mu Epsilon. Students should
plan to attend all student-related activities at MathFest,
and are strongly encouraged to avail themselves of the opportunity to attend as
many of the MAA talks, panels, minicourses, etc. that
don't conflict with PME activities. For a complete set of speaker and delegate
benefits and responsibilities, please check our "fine print."

Talks may be expository on material undergraduates probably have not seen in their classrooms or on new research accomplished while an undergraduate. Any area of mathematics or its applications is appropriate. Presentation time is fifteen minutes.The American Mathematical Society [AMS] will give PME $1000 and the American Statistical Association [ASA] will give PME $450 that PME will use to give ten $150 cash awards to students whose exposition and research are exemplary, and the Council for Undergraduate Research will give a $150 cash award for the best research paper. In addition to these ten awards for the ten best presentations, there may be more $150 cash awards, called `sponsored awards' if some of these best presentations represent research applicable to the special interests of these sponsoring organizations: MAA Special Interest Groups for Environmental Mathematics [SIGMAA-EM] and for Biology [BioSIGMAA], and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics [SIAM].

Students should see their Pi Mu Epsilon Faculty Advisors for more information about attending the MAA's MathFest 2013 and for an appropriate topic for a student talk at our 2013 PME Conference.
