We also invite proposals for poster presentations. These proposals should follow the same guidelines as those for individual papers.

We encourage student members to work with a faculty mentor in order to ensure a paper of the highest quality. Student members of the Southeast Chapter can compete for the AMS Southeast Student Presentation Award. Please review the full guidelines at

As indicated in an earlier message, the Duke vs. UNC-CH basketball game is scheduled to take place on March 5 (exact time TBA) on the campus of Duke University. Because this game will attract many out-of-towners, including national sports media, we strongly urge anyone planning to attend the AMS-SE Spring meeting and needing Saturday night accommodations to book a hotel room as soon as possible. Unfortunately, no hotel is willing to offer a group or reduced rate that evening because it is a game night.

We hope to see you in Durham!
