The Infinite Possibilities Conference, a national conference designed to promote, educate, encourage, and support women of color interested in the mathematical sciences, will be held at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County on March 30–31, 2012.
The agenda includes inspiring keynote speakers, research talks and poster sessions, and panel discussions ranging from advice for graduate studies to navigating paths beyond the degree. The day before the formal start of IPC, there will be a short course in mathematical biology funded by the MSRI collaborative diversity program and organized by the IMA. In addition, a special component for high school attendees is planned for the Saturday of the conference.
The conference is a project of Building Diversity in Science, hosted by UMBC, with support from NSF, NSA, UMBC, and our corporate sponsors. Travel grants are available to support about 100 participants (primarily undergraduate and graduate students) attending the conference. Please visit the conference page for more details, including registration and travel support. The Student Travel Support Deadline is January 27, 2012.
