At the conference Pudwell presented "Non-contiguous pattern avoidance in binary trees" based on joint work with Michael Dairyko (Pomona College), Samantha Tyner (Augustana College/Iowa State), and Casey Wynn (Hendrix College/Kent State), three undergraduates who worked under Pudwell's supervision in the 2011 Valparaiso Experience in Research by Undergraduate Mathematicians program.

Pudwell also chaired a paper session at the conference and was unanimously elected to the conference's 6-person Oversight and Long-Term Planning Committee.
