Programof activities/Book of abstracts


The University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez will host the XXX Interuniversity Seminar on Research in the Mathematical Sciences (SIDIM) on february 27 and 28, 2015. The SIDIM is an annual gathering where researchers, professors, teachers, graduate and undergraduate students share and discuss their recent work in mathematics and computer science. Its diverse and intense scientific program provides an interesting cross section of the current status of mathematical research in Puerto Rico. Math faculty and students from all the higher learning institutions in Puerto Rico, as well as distinguished visiting mathematicians will participate in the meeting.


Activities will include

  • Plenary Talks by

  • Concurrent sessions of individual talks and research posters in Pure and Applied Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science and Mathematics Education;

  • Research poster sessions for students;

  • A Math Graduate School and Summer Institutes Fair. This is a singular opportunity to connect with undergraduate & graduate Hispanic-American students interested in furthering their education in the mathematical sciences. Institutions participating in the Fair have consistently identified and recruited talented minority students for undergraduate research experiences, internships, graduate school, and even post doctoral positions.

  • Exhibition booths for math book publishers and computer companies.

The SIDIM’s history has been closely intertwined with the growth and development of our department. We hosted the first SIDIM and have successfully organized six previous editions of the Meeting. We are proud of the important contributions made by some of our most senior faculty and other mathematicians in the island so that the original meeting could be held. We are happy to see that these efforts to promote mathematical research activity in Puerto Rico have fruitfully produced 30 uninterrupted years of SIDIM activities. For us, hosting the XXX SIDIM is a special homecoming. We enthusiastically invite the mathematical community to join us by submitting the SIDIM’s electronic registration form. General information on the organization and logistics of the XXX SIDIM will be posted on this website. Additional information on the scope and history of SIDIM may be found at the Permanent SIDIM Committee webpage.

UMaRch Conference Puerto Rico

UMaRch Conference Puerto Rico is designed specifically for undergraduate students in order to provide them with the opportunity to present their research in a professional environment. As a first step into the academic and professional world, the experience will be valuable for students already considering a degree, graduate studies, or career in mathematics. It will also provide helpful information and inspiration for students still undecided in their area of study.

Students will present 15-minute talks explaining their research, including audience Q&A. All categories of research dealing with solving mathematical problems are encouraged, including original research in pure and applied mathematics, mathematics education, mathematical problems rising from real life (physics, biology, engineering) and even interesting problems from class or independent study. Professional standards of presentations are encouraged, including the use of Beamer-latex and PowerPoint or similar presentation tools. Students will also benefit from attending talks by invited speakers, who will give useful presentations about research and presentation strategies and techniques. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to interact informally with participating faculty and graduate students, opening doors to conversations about real experiences and expectations in mathematics research.

The deadline for conference registration is February 1, 2015. Participants coming from the farthest points on the island are encouraged to register early. Lunch will be provided for all participants selected. Please see the registration link for further details.
