Dan Margalit    (Georgia Tech University))
Monica Visan    (UCLA)

As in previous years we will conduct a “Graduate School Orientation” with invited representatives from several different US graduate programs in mathematics. At this popular venue questions ranging from choices of schools, nuts and bolts of applications, and what life is like as a grad student are discussed from various

We also plan to conduct an Outstanding Presentation competition again this year, and, as usual, will try provide as many opportunities as possible for interaction between junior and senior conference participants.
