The Student Lecture will be given on Friday evening by M. Elisabeth Paté-Cornell, Stanford University, on Finding and fixing systems' weaknesses: The art and science of engineering risk analysis.

Mathematical Experiences for Students Outside the Classroom, Tuesday, 1:00 p.m. -3:15 p.m., organized by Rick Poss, St. Norbert College and Tom Kelley, Henry Ford Community College. Mathematics "happens" outside the classroom and, in fact, many math majors are drawn to the subject through an event sponsored by a Student Chapter or Math Club. This session seeks presentations by academic, industrial, business, or student mathematicians. Descriptions of non-classroom activities could include, but are not limited to, special lectures, workshops for students, Math Days, Math Fair, research projects for students, Career Days, recreational mathematics, problem solving activities and student consultants. Applications should be submitted to Rick Poss <possrl@mail.snc.edu> by November 30, 2001. The application should include name, address, phone number, e-mail address, title of presentation, and a one page description of the activity. Presentation time is limited and there is no guarantee that all submissions can be accepted. Applicants will be notified by December 14, 2001, whether or not their proposal has been accepted. This session is sponsored by the MAA Committee on Student Chapters.

Undergraduate Student Poster Session, Tuesday, 4:00 p.m. ­6:30 p.m., organized by Mario U. Martelli, Claremont McKenna College. Send title and one-page abstract including author's name, address, phone number, e-mail, and the name of the faculty advisor to Mario Martelli, mario_martelli@mckenna.edu, Mathematics Department, Claremont McKenna College, Claremont, CA 91711, by December 10, 2001. Notification of acceptance will be e-mailed two weeks after the abstract has been received. Apply early! Space is limited. The session is reserved to undergraduates. First-year graduate students may submit posters about work done while undergraduates. Posters' content cannot be purely expository. The best posters will be awarded a monetary prize with funds provided by MAA, AMS, and CUR. Tri-fold, self-standing 48" x 36" tabletop posters will be provided. Additional material or equipment is the responsibility of each presenter. This session is sponsored by the MAA and the National Security Agency.
