Hi Math Club Members,

You have probably heard about this but the the Illinois Section of the
Mathematical Association of America will hold its annual meeting March 28-29 at
Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville. Full meeting information is
available at http://sections.maa.org/illinois/2014AnnualMeeting.htm.

It's a conference that is more geared towards undergraduates than most,
including a pizza party, a math contest, and more accessible talks. If you
are interested in going please let me know as we are trying to get a head

You need to register for it, but for students it's free.  The early
registration link is (http://ismaa.knox.edu/registration-2014/)  and is
open until March 14.

Edwardsville is sufficiently far away that in order to enjoy the whole
conference you will have spend one night (the 28th) in a hotel. The link
for hotel information is


Obviously, transportation is an issue as well and the link for that is


They provide driving instructions and suggestions on Amtrak use by
Chicagoans. If you are arriving by Amtrak (as I am) you need to inform them
a week before the conference so that they can pick you up from the station
in Alton, IL which arrives at 11:22 am. A one way ticket is $26, with round
trip $52.

Once again, if you are interested in attending please keep in mind the
various deadlines and please let me know so that we have a sense of the
size of the IIT contingent. Finally, at this time no promises can be made,
but there might be some limited financial support.
