About the conference

Undergraduates and faculty from Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas and Oklahoma are invited to submit papers for presentation at the MAKO Undergraduate Mathematics Research Conference. Papers submitted for presentation at the conference should discuss material understandable by undergraduates who have completed only calculus courses. Papers may be original research by the student(s) or expositions of interesting but not widely known results. Students will have the opportunity to have their work published in the online proceedings of the conference.


Lodging during the conference at the Missouri State residence halls is possible, each with two beds, subject to availability. For more information, contact Dr. Yungchen Cheng as soon as possible.
