How to Register

The AMS and the MAA encourage all participants to register for the Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM). The importance of registering for the meeting, especially before the meeting, cannot be overemphasized. Advanced registration fees are considerably lower than on-site registration fees and paying a registration fee helps to support a wide range of activities associated with planning, organizing, and executing the meetings.

All participants who wish to attend sessions are expected to register for the JMM and should be prepared to show their badges, if so requested. Badges are required to enter the Exhibits, the Employment Center, to obtain discounts at the AMS and MAA Book Sales, and to cash a check with the Joint Meetings cashier. The Mathematics Meetings Service Bureau (MMSB) is the official registration and housing bureau for the JMM and they will be processing all registrations.

Online Registration

To register and reserve a hotel room online, go to VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express are the only methods of payment accepted for online registrations, and charges to credit cards will be made in U.S. funds. Registration acknowledgments will be sent by email to the email addresses provided.

Paper Form Registration

For the convenience of those who do not have access to the internet or who prefer to not use the internet to register and reserve a hotel room, we offer a paper copy of the form. It is located at If you are using this method to register for the meeting and do not have a credit card, please contact the MMSB at for further instructions. If you are using a check to reserve your hotel room, your reservation and check must be received by the MMSB no later than December 1, 2019. This is to ensure that your check is validated and reaches the hotel in time to hold your room.

Forms must be mailed or faxed to the MMSB at MMSB, 201 Charles Street, Providence, RI 02904 or 401-455-4004. For security reasons, credit card numbers sent by email or fax cannot be accepted. If you are registering by paper form and would like to pay for your registration via credit card, you should indicate this on the form. An MMSB staff will then contact you.

Program Books

In order to keep registration fees as low as possible, save on postage, and make the JMM more environmentally friendly, program books will not be distributed or mailed in advance without your request. If you would like to receive a program book and pick it up at the meeting, please check the appropriate “YES” box on the Registration/Housing Form and pay a nominal fee of US\$5. If you would like to receive a program book and have it mailed to you before the meeting, please check the appropriate “YES” box on the Registration/Housing Form by November 20, 2019 and pay a nominal fee of US\$10. Programs can only be mailed via U.S. Mail. Programs cannot be mailed to Canada, Mexico, or other countries outside of the U.S. If you do not want to receive a program book (either before the meeting or at the meeting), please check the appropriate “NO” box on the Registration/Housing Form. Note that extra copies of the program book will be available on-site at the meeting to purchase, while supplies last, for those that inadvertently checked the wrong box,

Updates and corrections received too late to be included in the program books will be included in the online program on the JMM website and in the JMM mobile app, which will be available at the beginning of December.

Badges and Tickets

As part of our efforts to keep registration fees as low as possible and save on postage, all other registration materials must be picked up at the meeting. This includes badges and tickets. Badges will not be mailed before the meeting. Copies of all promotional flyers will be e-mailed to all registered participants before the meeting. All registration materials will be available at the Joint Mathematics Meetings Registration Desk, which will be located in Lobby C of the Colorado Convention Center.

Participant and Mailing Lists

To be included on the list of participants or the mailing list that is generated for the JMM, you must opt-in by checking the appropriate boxes on the Registration/Housing Form. All who do not opt-in on a category, will not be included in these lists.

The list of participants will be included on the JMM daily newsletter, which is distributed during the meeting, and on the JMM mobile app. The mailing list will be used: a) by AMS and MAA staff to send marketing and promotional information by email, and b) by exhibitors and sponsors to send marketing and promotional information by U.S. Mail. The AMS and MAA do not disseminate the email addresses of JMM participants to outside parties.
