Registration is Open!
Registration is now open for the 2015 Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM). Please read the instructions on How to Register and How to Reserve a Hotel Room before completing the Registration Form. Note the registration and housing deadlines listed on the deadlines page and register before the meeting to take advantage of discounted registration fees and hotel rates.
The largest mathematics meeting in the world is returning to San Antonio, one of the friendliest cities in the nation and where southern hospitality meets Texas charm to create a culture that’s adept at making visitors feel at home. The Mathematical Association of America (MAA) and the American Mathematical Society (AMS) invite you to join them there for the next Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM). This will be the 98th annual winter meeting of MAA and the 121st annual meeting of AMS. The JMM will again host sessions by the Association for Symbolic Logic (ASL), the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM), the National Association for Mathematicians (NAM), and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).
