Troy University is hosting the 8th Annual TROY MathFest on the Montgomery Campus on Saturday, March 29, 2014. The focus of this annual conference is to give undergraduate students a forum to share their research and projects. Students throughout the Southeast are invited to attend this year’s conference to present in areas of mathematics, mathematics education, history of mathematics, and applications of mathematics. TROY encourages students who may not want to present to attend and learn more about a wide variety of mathematics. The conference also welcomes graduate students and faculty to attend and give 20-minute talks.

MathFest is free for all participants but pre-registration is requested by March 20, 2014! Lunch and other light snacks will be provided. Limited travel funds will also be available for undergraduate student participants who do not have travel support from their home institutions.
