How To Register
The importance of advance registration cannot be overemphasized. Advance registration fees are considerably lower than onsite registration fees. The AMS and the MAA encourage all participants to register for the meeting. When you pay the registration fee, you are helping to support a wide range of activities associated with planning, organizing, and execution of the meetings.
All registrations are processed by the Mathematics Meetings Service Bureau (MMSB). Participants who register by November 19 may receive their badges, programs, and tickets (where applicable) in advance by U.S. mail approximately three weeks before the meetings. Those who do not want their materials mailed should check the appropriate box on the Advance Registration/Housing (ARH) Form. However, materials will not be mailed to Canada, Mexico, or other countries outside of the U.S. due to delays. Participants from these countries must pick up their materials at Advance Registration Pickup Desk at the meetings. Please note that a US$5 replacement fee will be charged for programs and badges that were mailed but not taken to the meeting. See the staff at the Registration Assistance Desk.
Acknowledgments of registrations will be sent by email to the email addresses given on the ARH Form. If you do not wish your registration acknowledged by email, please mark the appropriate box on the ARH form.
Advance registration forms accompanied by insufficient payment will be returned and 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 ARH Form. (A list of these numbers is available by sending an empty email message to email@example.com; include the number 1096 as the subject of the message.) Copies of this list will be posted on the JMM website. If you do not wish to be included in any mailing list used for promotional purposes, check the appropriate box on the ARH Form.
Our online registration system has changed. To better serve you, we are implementing a new registration system that will streamline your registration and housing experience for this meeting as well as ensure that all credit card payments are securely processed with the latest payment card industry guidelines.
AMS and MAA have agreed to process all JMM registrations through the AMS business portal. You have the option to register using your AMS login account or register using a Guest account.
If you have an AMS account, using it will allow the system to auto-complete many of the registration fields. Otherwise, there is no difference between using an AMS or Guest account.
Please choose how you want to proceed with your registration.
Note that an email address is required to register using GUEST login and it cannot be an address associated with an existing AMS login account:
Once you create an account, you will be able to continue on to register for the meeting and hotel accommodations. If you use an AMS login account, the same username and password may be used to register for all future Joint Mathematics Meetings.
We hope you find this new system easy to use. Once your information is in our system you will not have to enter your contact information for any future Joint Mathematics Meetings, unless it has changed; thus making your registration faster and easier. For any questions or concerns about this process, please contact the Mathematics Meetings Service Bureau at firstname.lastname@example.org or toll free at 800-321-4267 x 4144 or x4137.
To register online, go to www.jointmathematicsmeetings.org/meetreg?meetnum=2160. VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express are the only methods of payment which are accepted for online advance registrations, and charges to credit cards will be made in U.S. funds. All online advance registrants will receive acknowledgment of payment upon submission of this completed form. The link to make a hotel reservation will be located at the end of your order summary page or in your email acknowledgement.
All those who wish to register a group of people at one time should contact the Mathematics Meetings Service Bureau at email@example.com or toll free at 800-321-4267 x 4144 or x4137 for assistance.
For your convenience, a copy of the form is available in pdf format at jointmathematicsmeetings.org/meetings/national/jmm2014/jmm14_regform.pdf. Forms must be mailed or faxed to the MMSB at MMSB, P. O. Box 6887, Providence, RI 02940 or 401-455-4004. For your security, we do not accept credit card numbers by email or fax. If you are registering by paper form and wish to pay for your registration or guarantee your hotel reservation by credit card, please so indicate on the form and someone from the MMSB will contact you by phone.
Participants who cancel their advance registration for the meetings, minicourses, short courses, or banquets by January 7, 2014, will be eligible to receive a 50% refund of fees paid. No refunds will be issued after January 7.
Participants who are not members of the AMS or MAA and register for the meetings as a nonmember will receive mailings after the meetings with special membership offers.
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 Exhibits and the Employment Center, to obtain discounts at the AMS and MAA Book Sales, and to cash a check with the Joint Meetings cashier.
Advance Registration Deadlines
There are three separate advance registration deadlines, each with its own benefits.
- EARLY meetings advance registration (room drawing): November 4
- ORDINARY meetings advance registration (hotel reservations, materials mailed): November 19
- FINAL meetings advance registration (advance registration, short courses, minicourses, and banquets): December 24
Early Advance Registration: Those who register by the early deadline of November 4 will be included in a random drawing to select winners of complimentary hotel rooms in Baltimore. Multiple occupancy is permissible. The location of rooms to be used in this drawing will be based on the number of complimentary rooms available in the various hotels. Therefore, the free room may not necessarily be in the winner’s first-choice hotel. The winners will be notified by mail prior to December 24, so register early!
Ordinary Advance Registration: Those who register after November 4 and by the ordinary deadline of November 19 may use the housing services offered by the MMSB but are not eligible for the room drawing. You may also elect to receive your badge and program by mail in advance of the meetings.
Final Advance Registration: Those who register after November 19 and by the final deadline of December 24 must pick up their badges, programs, and any tickets for social events at the meetings. Unfortunately it is sometimes not possible to provide final advance registrants with housing, so registrants are strongly urged to make their hotel reservations by November 19. Please note that the December 24 deadline is firm; any forms received after that date will be returned and full refunds issued. To pick up your materials, please come to the Meetings Registration Desk located inside the Pratt Street Lobby on the 300 level of the Baltimore Convention Center.
