Students from four groups at Williams’ 2018 SMALL REU (commutative algebra, knot theory, random matrix theory, and tropical geometry) attended MAA’s Mathfest Conference in Denver, Colorado from August 1 to August 4 to present on their research. Congratulations to the six students who received an MAA Outstanding Student Paper Session Presentation Award!
Those students and their talks were:

Ivan Aidun: Divisorial and Geometric Gonality

Mira Gordin: NonHermitian Anderson Operators and their Spectral Properties

Or Eisenberg and Yi Wang: Hyperbolic virtual knots

Anya Michaelsen: Noetherian Rings with Unusual Prime Ideal Structures

Julie Yuan: Graphs of Gonality Three
