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 laptop projection device) 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
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 at the Joint Mathematics Meetings to registered participants.
Read all about it here.
Email Services: Limited email access for all Joint Meetings
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 US$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
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.
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 Monday,
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 5 through 8 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.
