Undergraduate Research Symposium on Biomathematics
April 21-22, 2006
SUNY Geneseo

Students from colleges and universities are invited to share their research on topics at the interface between biology and mathematics. Our goal is to give students and their faculty mentors the opportunity to share their research or exposition and to meet fellow researchers in this rapidly growing field.

We are planning a venue with all biomathematical topics welcome including, but not limited to, biomolecular computing, bioinformatics through ecological modeling. Presenters will be able to give either 15-minute oral presentations (flexible, with five minutes for Q & A) or poster presentations.

Friday evening will begin with a reception and dinner at the Big Tree Inn, followed by a reception.

Keynote Address
"Agroterrorism in the US: Security Challenge for the 21st Century"
Dr. Alexander Kasiyanov
Exypnos Research Institute, Omaha, NE
Saturday, April 22, 9:30 AM,
Location =
South Hall, Room 340
Open to the Public

Accomodations will be provided free of charge to presenters and their mentors at the Geneseo Quality Inn ([585] 243-0500). Please make a reservation for Friday night and tell them that you're with the biomath symposium group (to get a reduced rate). At this point the room will be billed directly to us but they still may ask you for a credit card. The worst case scenario is that you will have to get reimbursed.

Travel support may be possible (please contact Dr. Tony Macula, 585.245.5384).

We also will have a chance to discuss the role of biomathematical research in the training of undergraduates.

Presentations available for viewing



Oral presentations should be in either PowerPoint or Adobe pdf formats. Please get to your scheduled room 15 minutes prior to the start of your session to load your presentation. Posters will be placed on the walls of South Hall near room 336. These should be placed by 9:15 AM, prior to the keynote address at 9:30 AM.
