About the Conference

Excellent Speakers

The New Mexico Alliance for Minority Participation (New Mexico AMP) will host its annual statewide student research conference on the campus of New Mexico State University (NMSU) from October 3 - 5, 2013. The day of the conference is October 4, with pre- and post-conference workshops for community college students on October 3 and October 5. Each year, the conference brings together students and faculty from the state’s colleges and universities as well as students and teachers from the New Mexico Math, Engineering, Science Achievement, Inc. (New Mexico MESA) program.

The conference provides an opportunity for students to present their research and gain presentation experience, to serve as role models for other students, and to participate in workshops and panels that help them plan their academic and professional careers. The event also serves as a vehicle for student and faculty networking and as a forum for STEM students, instructors, and industry professionals to share information, ideas, experiences, and advice.
