Pi Mu Epsilon math conference set for April 12-13

The College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University will host the 2024 Pi Mu Epsilon conference on Friday and Saturday, April 12 and 13 in the Pellegrene Auditorium on the SJU campus. The two keynote talks at 8:30 p.m. Friday and 10:30 a.m. Saturday will be given by Dr. Lew Ludwig, a professor in the mathematics and computer science department at Denison University in Granville, Ohio.

The Friday evening talk is titled, “Generative AI in Education: Opportunities, Challenges, and Ethical Implications.” Saturday morning’s talk is titled, “Mathematical research – it’s knot what you think!”

In addition to hosting the two talks given by a professional mathematician, the conference also provides an opportunity for undergraduate students to speak about research they have conducted and other mathematical activities in which they have engaged. These talks provide a great opportunity for the student speakers to share their work, for future researchers to find inspiration and for prospective students to see how mathematics can be a vibrant field of study.

Pi Mu Epsilon is a national mathematics honor society that promotes scholarly activity in mathematics among academic institutions and recognizes students’ mathematical achievements.

Pi Mu Epsilon conference details can be found on the conference website.
