Each year, our faculty, students, staff, postdocs and research scientists attend conferences and meetings aimed at introducing underrepresented or underserved students to graduate programs in the STEM fields.
See a list of some of these conferences below. Please contact us with other conference suggestions!
The Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) is one of the largest communities of underrepresented minorities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Students attend this conference to present their research, enhance professional development skills, explore graduate schools, and network. Research faculty and program directors play an essential role in mentoring students and learning strategies for facilitating student success.</p>
The Annual AISES National Conference is a unique, three-day event focusing on educational, professional, and workforce development for Indigenous peoples of North America and the Pacific Islands in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) studies and careers.
ENAR Spring Meeting
The Eastern North American Region of the International Biometric Society’s annual ENAR Spring Meeting hosts biostatistics students, researchers, and practitioners, from academia, government, and industry. The meeting will expose attendees to the latest developments in statistical methods, software, and applications through the scientific and educational programs. The meeting also provides wonderful opportunities for professional networking and collaboration, learning new career development strategies, opening up new employment opportunities through the meeting’s career placement services, and reconnecting with friends and colleagues.
Field of Dreams
Each fall, Math Alliance Scholars, together with their Math Alliance Mentors, are invited to the Field of Dreams Conference. The Field of Dreams Conference introduces potential graduate students to graduate programs in the mathematical sciences at Math Alliance schools as well as professional opportunities in these fields. Scholars spend time with faculty mentors from the Math Alliance schools, get advice on graduate school applications, and attend seminars on graduate school preparation and expectations as well as career seminars.
Joint Statistical Meeting
The Joint Statistical Meeting (JSM) offers a unique opportunity for statisticians in academia, industry, and government to exchange ideas and explore opportunities for collaboration. Beginning statisticians (including current students) can learn from and interact with senior members of the profession.
The largest multidisciplinary and multicultural STEM diversity event in the country, the SACNAS Conference is a gathering which serves to equip, empower, and energize participants for their academic and professional paths in STEM. SACNAS is an inclusive organization dedicated to fostering the success of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans, from college students to professionals, in attaining advanced degrees, careers, and positions of leadership in STEM.
StatFest is traditionally a one-day conference aimed at encouraging undergraduate students from historically underrepresented groups to consider careers and graduate studies in the statistical sciences. This conference is an ongoing initiative of the American Statistical Association through its Committee on Minorities in Statistics.
CMD-IT/ACM Richard Tapia Celebration of Diversity in Computing Conference is the premier venue to acknowledge, promote and celebrate diversity in computing.
The Women in Statistics and Data Science Conference brings together professionals and students from academia, industry, and the government working in statistics and data science. The conference provides a unique opportunity for attendees to come together as a community, share their knowledge, and exchange ideas.
