New Connections in Math 2022

Analysis, Probability, PDE, Computation, & Applications


Date: Friday and Saturday, September 23-24, 2022
Location: Duke University, Durham, NC.  All presentations will take place in Gross Hall.

Are you an undergraduate student interested in analysis, probability, PDE, computation, or applied mathematics?  

Do you want to learn more about research opportunities and graduate study in these fields?

New Connections in Math (NCM22) is a research symposium for undergraduate students interested in analysis, probability, PDE, computation, and applied mathematics.  Organized and hosted by the RTG Team in the Duke Mathematics Department, the event will be a great way for students to learn about some current math research opportunities and about graduate study in math.   Participants will meet other undergraduate students doing research, as well as graduate students and faculty working in analysis, probability, PDE, computation, and applications.  Students who have been involved in a summer research project or semester research project are strongly encouraged to give a short talk about their work.   The program will include: student research talks, faculty keynote speakers, a panel discussion with grad students and faculty about opportunities for graduate study, and many opportunities to interact with other mathematicians.

Some funding from the National Science Foundation is available to support undergraduate participation.  All participants must register, using the form below; funding support can be requested on the registration form.

Lodging booking link

  • We have arranged discounted hotel rooms for participants, at the AC Hotel Durham, which is within 15 minutes of Gross Hall.
  • Please use the booking link to ensure you receive the discounted room rate. If you call the hotel directly, please make sure to mention you are a part of NCM22 to get the discounted room rate.
  • We suggest booking early since we only have a limited number of rooms. During our event, other events will also be taking place so room availability in the area will be limited.
