The Annual University of North Carolina Greensboro Regional Mathematics and Statistics Conference (UNCG RMSC) has provided a venue for student researchers to share their work since 2005. The 8th Conference took place on November 3, 2012. The UNCG-RMSC conference established a tradition of attracting active researchers and their faculty mentors from NC and surrounding states. The conference is specifically tailored for students to present the results of their research and to allow participants to interact with and learn from each other. This type of engagement is truly unique. The broad scope of UNCG-RMSC includes topics in applied mathematics, number theory, biology, statistics, biostatistics and computer sciences.
