Audio-Visual Equipment: Standard equipment
in all session rooms is one overhead projector and screen. (Invited
50-minute speakers are automatically provided with two overhead
projectors and a laptop projector; AMS Special Sessions are provided
with the standard equipment and a laptop projector.) Blackboards
are not available. Organizers of sessions that by their nature
demand additional equipment (e.g., VCR and monitor or projection
panel) and where the majority of speakers in the session require
this equipment should contact the audio-visual coordinator for
the meetings at the AMS office in Providence at 401-455-4140 or
by email at email@example.com to obtain the necessary approvals. Individual
speakers must consult with the session organizer(s) if additional
equipment or services are needed. If your session has no organizer,
please contact the audio-visual coordinator directly. All requests
should be received by November 4.
Equipment requests made at the meetings most likely
will not be granted because of budgetary restrictions.Unfortunately
no audio-visual equipment can be provided for committee meetings
or other meetings or gatherings not on the scientific program.
|Videotaping: The videotaping of any Joint Mathematics
Meetings sponsored events, including but not limited to special
sessions, contributed paper sessions, workshops, mini-courses,
short- courses and colloquia, is strictly forbidden without
the explicit written permission of the Director of Meetings
and Conferences for the Joint Meetings.
Childcare: The American Mathematical Society
and the Mathematical Association of America will again offer childcare
services for the Joint Mathematics Meetings to registered participants.
Read all about it here.
Email Services: Limited email access for
all Joint Meeting participants will be available. The hours of
operation will be published in the program.
Information Distribution: Tables are set
up in the exhibit area for dissemination of general information
of possible interest to the members and for the dissemination
of information of a mathematical nature not promoting a product
or program for sale.
If a person or group wishes to display information
of a mathematical nature promoting a product or program for sale,
they may do so in the exhibit area at the Joint Books, Journals,
and Promotional Materials exhibit for a fee of $58 (posters are
slightly higher) per item. Please contact the exhibits manager,
MMSB, P.O. Box 6887, Providence, RI 02940, for further details.
The administration of these tables is in the hands
of the AMS-MAA Joint Meetings Committee, as are all arrangements
for Joint Mathematics Meetings.
Petition Table: At the request of the AMS
Committee on Human Rights of Mathematicians, a table will be made
available in the exhibit area at which petitions on behalf of
named individual mathematicians suffering from human rights violations
may be displayed and signed by meetings participants acting in
their individual capacities. For
details contact the director of meetings in the Providence office
at 401-455-4137 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Signs of moderate size may be displayed at the table
but must not represent that the case of the individual in question
is backed by the Committee on Human Rightsunless it has, in fact,
so voted. Volunteers may be present at the table to provide information
on individual cases, but notice must be sent at least seven days
in advance of the meetings to the director of meetings in the
Providence office. Since space is limited, it may also be necessary
to limit the number of volunteers present at the table at any
one time. The Committee on Human Rights may delegate a person
to be present at the table at any or all times, taking precedence
over other volunteers.
Any material that is not a petition (e.g., advertisements,
résumés) will be removed by the staff. At the end
of the exhibits on Saturday, any material on the table will be
discarded, so individuals placing petitions on the table should
be sure to remove them prior to the close of exhibits.
Telephone Messages: The most convenient method
for leaving a message is to do so with the participant's hotel.
Another method would be to leave a message at the meetings registration
desk from January 12 through 15 during the hours that the desk
is open. These messages will be posted on the Math Meetings Message
Board; however, staff at the desk will try to locate a participant
in the event of a bona fide emergency. The telephone number will
be published in the program and daily newsletter.
