The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) invites early-career women to give a poster presentation at AWM Research Symposium 2017 at the University of California, Los Angeles April 8-9, 2017. This meeting will also feature 4 plenary talks, 19 special sessions on a wide range of topics in pure and applied mathematics, math history and math education, a Wikipedia edit-a-thon, a banquet, and opportunities for discussion and networking.
Funding: AWM has received funding from the National Security Agency (NSA) to offer partial support for graduate students who present posters. Note: funding from NSA is restricted to US citizens. A separate funding form will be provided to eligible applicants.

All applications should include • a cover letter, • a title and brief abstract (no more than 1 or 2 paragraphs) of the proposed poster, • a curriculum vitae, and • a *brief* letter of recommendation from a faculty member or research mathematician who knows the applicant’s research.
