USTARS 2014 will be hosted by
UC Berkeley on
April 11-13, 2014
Underrepresented Students in Topology and Algebra Research Symposium (USTARS) creates a venue where Algebra and Topology graduate students from underrepresented groups present their work and form research and social support networks with other mathematicians with related research interests.
This event is a two-day research symposium which will consist of underrepresented speakers giving 30-minute research talks. These presentations will run in parallel sessions and will be divided by topics based on a broad definition of Algebra and Topology. In addition, two distinguished graduate students and one invited faculty mentor will each give one-hour talks and a research poster session featuring invited undergraduate students will also be included. The event will close with a panel discussion addressing critical transitions of undergraduate and graduate students.

To be considered for the Distinguished Graduate Student, please submit an abstract and two-page summary of the research presentation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will be two awards given: one for research with an algebraic perspective and one on a topological topic. This award provides the selected students with the honor of giving an hour-long lecture as well as receiving an honorarium of $200.
