The main goal of this conference is to highlight current work by African-American researchers and students in mathematics. This conference will strengthen the mathematical sciences by encouraging the increased participation of African-American and underrepresented groups, facilitating working relationships between them and helping to cultivate their careers. In addition to the talks there will be a graduate student poster session and a book discussion about the aesthetic nature of mathematics itself. These talks, presentations, and discussions will bring a broader perspective to the critical issues involving minority participation in mathematics.
