The Annual UNCG Regional Mathematics and Statistics Conference

The 14th Annual UNCG RMSC, Saturday, November 3, 2018

Student Paper competition

All UNCG RMSC presentations enter the student paper competition.

Each judge evaluates the talks in five categories (Quality of the Abstract, Significance of Work, Clarity of Speech, Visual Aids, Overall Impression of Presentation) on a scale from 0 (Poor) to 10 (Excellent). The scores in these categories are then added up to give a total presentation score. The judge may also leave additional comments to the competition committee on the evaluation form. At the conclusion of the session, the forms should be returned to the session chair who hands the forms to the competition committee.

After compiling each contestant's competition score, the competition scores will be ranked from highest to smallest in the Undergraduate and Graduate categories. In case of ties, the judge's comments can be used to break them. The top three presenter in each category will be awarded the prize (TBA).

The competition is sponsored by Elon University's Chapter of Pi Mu Epsilon.
