is the difference between a contributed paper (CP) session
and a Special Session (SS)?
AMS Contributed Paper sessions consist of ten-minute talks
contributed to the AMS program by the authors (speakers),
grouped by related subject classifications into sessions
by the AMS Associate Secretary responsible for the scientific
Contributed Paper sessions consist of (usually) ten- or
fifteen-minute talks organized by mathematicians on specific
topics. The selection process is detailed below in "How
do I submit an abstract for talks in the MAA sessions?"
Special Sessions consist of talks (usually of twenty minutes'
duration) organized by mathematicians on specific topics.
It may be that all available places within a Special Session
are taken by invitation; however, contributions can sometimes
be accommodated. These are known as abstracts for consideration
in Special Sessions and must be submitted by August
6, 2003. Any contribution that cannot be accommodated
in a Special Session will be considered for presentation
in an AMS Contributed Paper session if the author so indicates.
do I submit an abstract for a talk in AMS sessions?
To submit an abstract for AMS, please follow the directions
located in http://www.ams.org/abstracts/instructions.html.
Deadline for abstract submission is October 1, 2003.
potential speakers should be aware that in order to be
accepted for publication, an abstract must have mathematical
research content. It should not contain libelous, defamatory
or tasteless remarks, commercial promotions, nor political
or religious arguments. Papers may not be presented if
published in full before the date of the Society meeting
or if previously presented to any learned society except
the National Academy of Sciences or the Royal Society
