The 2022 Union College Mathematics Conference is set to take place June 3-5, 2022. The conference, which has been held in various forms since the 1970s, creates unique opportunities for cross-disciplinary research among the fields represented across the programming and will feature five parallel sessions in Algebraic Topology, Applied Topology and Geometry, Differential Geometry and Geometric Analysis, Rings and Algebras, and Stochastic Analysis and Applications. There will be also be five featured talks (including four plenary) on recent work in these fields. The parallel sessions will provide researchers with the chance to learn of recent developments in their fields and to share their own work with an audience of specialists, while the plenary talks have the potential to foster the creation of entirely new fields by exposing researchers to groundbreaking work outside of their own areas of expertise.

The conference programming will also include a networking opportunity for individuals who have been involved with or are interested in the Association for Women in Mathematics, as well as many opportunities for interaction among participants.

The award will support the attendance and participation of mathematicians who are from historically underrepresented groups in the mathematical sciences and/or are in the early stages of their careers at the conference.
