Twenty women mathematicians are selected in advance of this workshop to present their research; graduate students will present posters, and the recent Ph.D.s will give 20-minute talks. At 1:00 p.m. there is a panel discussion on Career Options: Industry, Government, and Academic, moderated by Alissa Crans, Loyola Marymount University, with panelists Jennifer Chayes, Microsoft Research; Melissa Choi, MIT Lincoln Laboratory; Navah Langmeyer, National Security Agency, and Peter March, Ohio State University. All mathematicians (female and male) are invited to attend the entire program. Departments are urged to help graduate students and recent Ph.D.s who do not receive funding to obtain some institutional support to attend the workshop and other meeting sessions. Updated information about the workshop is available at www.awm-math.org/workshops.html. AWM seeks volunteers to lead discussion groups and act as mentors for workshop participants. If you are interested, please contact the AWM office; inquiries regarding future workshops may be made to the office at awm@awm-math.org.

Young Mathematicians Network (YMN)

Open Forum, Thursday, 7:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m., organized by Joshua D. Laison, Willamette University, and Thomas Wakefield, Youngstown State University. All meeting participants, expecially undergraduates and graduate students, and early career mathematicians are invited to discuss topics and issues affecting young mathematicians.

Also see other details about other sessions cosponsored by the YMN under these headings: MAA Panels, et al: Project NExT-YMN Poster Session, Wednesday, 2:15 p.m.; Graduate School: Choosing One, Getting In, Staying In, Thursday, 9:00 a.m.; Career Options for Undergraduate Mathematics Majors, Thursday, 1:00 p.m.; and Hit the Ground Running!

Mathematical Art Exhibition, organized by Robert Fathauer, Tessellations Company; Nathaniel A. Friedman, ISAMA and SUNY Albany, Anne Burns, Long Island University and C. W. Post University, Reza Sarhangi, Towson University, and Nathan Selikoff, Digital Awakening Studios. A popular feature at the Joint Mathematics Meetings, this exhibition provides a break in your day. On display are works in various media by artists who are inspired by mathematics and by mathematicians who use visual art to express their findings. Fractals, symmetry, and tiling are some of the ideas at play here. Don't miss this unique opportunity for a different perspective on mathematics. The exhibition will be located inside the Joint Mathematics Exhibits and open during the same exhibit hours.

Summer Program for Women in Mathematics (SPWM) Reunion, Thursday, 1:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m., organized by Murli M. Gupta, George Washington University. This is a reunion of the participants from our past 17 years who are in various states in their mathematical careers: some are students (undergraduate or graduate), others are in various jobs, both in academia as well as government and industry. The participants will describe their experiences relating to all aspects of their careers, and a few will give talks on the research areas they are exploring. See http://www.gwu.edu/~spwm.
