The Research Experiences for Undergraduates at Penn State (REU) announces the MASS FEST Conference for the Summer 2005. It will be a small informal conference for MASS and Summer REU program alumni. REU 2005 students will present final research project results. MASS and REU alumni are invited to share their research activities. There will also be guest mathematics lecturers. We hope you plan to attend so you may share both knowledge and MASS and REU memories.
