The Department of Mathematics of the Ateneo de Naga University (AdNU) (with the help of the College of Education, the Graduate School, and C&E Publishing, Inc.) held the 2012 Bicol Mathematics Conference last February 4, 2012 at AdNU. It was very well attended with around 120 participants (with a few from as far away as Sorsogon).
This is the fourth Bicol Mathematics Conference; the earlier conferences were held in 2008, 2009, and 2010. Aside from an invited speaker from outside AdNU, the paper presenters so far have been AdNU faculty. Perhaps in the future there can be more speakers from other universities in Bicol.
