Fees & Fee Categories


The importance of advance registration cannot be overemphasized. Advance registration fees are considerably lower than the fees that will be charged for registration at the meetings. Participants registering by November 14 will receive their badges, programs, and tickets purchased in advance by mail approximately three weeks before the meetings, unless they check the appropriate box to the contrary on the Advance Registration/Housing Form. Because of delays that occur in U.S. mail to Canada, advance registrants from Canada must pick up their materials at the meetings. Because of delays that occur in U.S. mail to overseas, materials are never mailed overseas. There will be a special Registration Assistance Desk at the Joint Meetings to assist individuals who either do not receive this mailing or who have a problem with their registration. Please note that a US$5 replacement fee will be charged for programs and badges that are mailed but not taken to New Orleans. Acknowledgments of registrations will be sent by email to the email addresses given on the Advance Registration/Housing Form. If you do not wish your registration acknowledged by email, please mark the appropriate box on the form.


Participants Who Are Not Members of the AMS and register for the meetings as a nonmember will receive mailings after the meetings are over with a special membership offer.

Advance registration and on-site registration fees only partially cover the expenses of holding meetings. All mathematicians who wish to attend sessions are expected to register and should be prepared to show their badges if so requested. Badges are required to enter the exhibit area, to obtain discounts at the AMS and MAA Book Sales, and to cash a check with the Joint Meetings cashier.

Advance registration forms accompanied by insufficient payment will be returned, thereby delaying the processing of any housing request, or a US$5 charge will be assessed if an invoice must be prepared to collect the delinquent amount. Overpayments of less than US$5 will not be refunded.

For each invalid check or credit card transaction that results in an insufficient payment for registration or housing, a US$5 charge will be assessed. Participants should check with their tax preparers for applicable deductions for education expenses as they pertain to these meetings.

If you wish to be included in a list of individuals sorted by mathematical interest, please provide the one mathematics subject classification number of your major area of interest on the Advance Registration/Housing Form. (A list of these numbers is available by sending an empty email message to; include the number 1023 as the subject of the message.) Copies of this list will be available for your perusal in the Networking Center.

If you do not wish to be included in any mailing list used for promotional purposes, please indicate this in the appropriate box on the Advance Registration/Housing Form.


Where Your Registration Dollars Go

The AMS and MAA make every effort to keep participant expenses at meetings and registration fees for meetings as low as possible. We work hard to negotiate the best hotel rates and to make the best use of your registration dollars to keep the meeting affordable for you. When you pay the registration fee, you are helping to support a wide range of activities associated with planning, organizing, and running a major meeting of this size.

Planning involves such activities as site selection which begins more than five years before the meeting. This encomapsses looking for the best hotel and convention center facilities at reasonable rates. The staff also attends to the needs of other organizations, such as the Association for Symbolic Logic, the Association for Women in Mathematics, and the National Association of Mathematicians. Processing over 1600 abstracts and scheduling all sessions, speakers, over 100 committee meetings, and more than 50 social events requires a great deal of precise planning and coordination. These activities along with the production and printing of the meetings program and timetable, the handling of over 4,000 advance registrations, making over 2,000 hotel reservations, preparing badges for advance registrants, and the mailing of advance registration materials are just a part where your registration dollar goes. At the meeting site some of the major expenses are room rental, audiovisual equipment and services, the email center, and support personnel (such as freight handlers and typists).

While the AMS and MAA work hard to make the best use of registration dollars and keep the meetings affordable, your suggestions on how to keep costs down are welcome. While at the meeting please enter your comments in the log at the Transparencies section of the Registration Desk. After the meeting is over, you may forward your suggestions to the Director of Meetings, AMS, P.O. Box 6887, Providence, RI 02940, or send email to



Please register onsite for the meeting. The Joint Meetings Registration Desk will be located in La Galeries 5 & 6 on the 2nd level of the Marriott Hotel. It will be open between 3:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. on Thursday (1/4); 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Friday (1/5), and 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Saturday (1/6) Sunday (1/7); and Monday (1/8).

IF YOU NEED TO MAKE A CHANGE TO YOUR EXISTING RESERVATION: Please note that all reservations and changes will have to be made with the hotels directly after December 10. All final rooming lists were sent to the hotels on Thursday, December 7. At that point, the MMSB could no longer process hotel information. Please allow the hotels a couple of weekdays to get the information from the lists into their system. Then, they will be happy to take your changes, etc.


Participants should be aware that the AMS and MAA contract only with facilities who are working toward being in compliance with the public accommodations requirements of the ADA. They have negotiated special discounted hotel room rates with the Headquarter (HQ) hotels, the New Orleans Marriott and the Sheraton New Orleans, and five other hotels. Book a room at one of these hotels by October 31 and automatically enter a Special Room Raffle or Room Lottery for a free room at this meeting! Read all about it here.

Participants requiring hotel reservations should read the instructions on the hotel page. Participants who did not reserve a room during advance registration and would like to obtain a room at one of the hotels listed on the following pages should call the hotels directly after December 12. However, after that date the MMSB can no longer guarantee availability of rooms or special convention rates. Participants should be aware that some hotels may charge a penalty fee to guests for departure changes made before or after guests have checked into their rooms. Participants should also inquire about this at check-in and make their final plans accordingly.

Participants should also be aware that a guarantee is required when making a reservation for this meeting.When one guarantees a reservation by paying a deposit or submitting a credit card number as a guarantee in advance, however, the hotel usually will honor this reservation up until checkout time the following day. If the individual holding the reservation has not checked in by that time, the room is then released for sale, and the hotel retains the deposit or applies one night's room charge to the credit card number submitted.

If you hold a guaranteed reservation at a hotel but are informed upon arrival that there is no room for you, there are certain things you can request the hotel do. First, they should provide for a room at another hotel in town for that evening at no charge. (You already paid for the first night when you made your deposit.) They should pay for taxi fares to the other hotel that evening and back to the meetings the following morning. They should also pay for one telephone toll call so that you can let people know you are not at the hotel you expected. They should make every effort to find a room for you in their hotel the following day and, if successful, pay your taxi fares to and from the second hotel so that you can pick up your baggage and bring it to the first hotel. Not all hotels in all cities follow this practice, so your request for these services may bring mixed results or none at all.

Importance of Staying in the Official Meetings Hotels: Your patronage of the official headquarters hotels enables the JMM to secure the meeting space at a greatly reduced cost which helps to keep the cost of the meeting and your registration fees down. Also, networking events will be held at the Marriott and the Sheraton for the convenience of our participants.
