Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM)

Twenty-Seventh Annual Emmy Noether Lecture, Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 9:50 a.m., will be given by Ingrid Daubechies, Princeton University, Mathematical results and challenges in learning theory. Also see the Special Session of the same title jointly sponsored by the AWM and organized by Cynthia Rudin, Courant Institute, New York University, under "AMS Special Sessions" .

A luncheon in honor of the lecturer will be held on Friday. See the "Social Events" section for details on how to participate.

Lawrence H. Summers: One Year Later, Thursday, 3:20 p.m. to 4:35 p.m., organized by Barbara Lee Keyfitz, Fields Institute and University of Houston. Speakers include Richard M. Dudley, M.I.T.; Mary W. Gray, American University; Ellen E. Kirkman, Wake Forest University; M. Beth Ruskai, Tufts University; Alice Silverberg, University of California Irvine; Karen Uhlenbeck, University of Texas at Austin; and others. Widely quoted remarks by the President of Harvard University in January 2004 initiated a public discussion of the status of women scientists in research universities; speakers consider aspects of the controversy that are important to the future of women in mathematics

Just before the panel discussion, AWM will recognize the Alice T. Schafer award honorees. Note that formal prizewinner announcements are made at the Joint Prize Session on Friday afternoon (see the AWM inclusion in the "Joint Sessions" section ).

Business Meeting, Thursday, 4:40 p.m. to 5:10 p.m.

Workshop, Sunday, 8:20 a.m. to 4:20 p.m. With funding from the Office of Naval Research and the National Security Agency, AWM will conduct its workshop for women graduate students and women who have received the Ph.D. within the last five years. 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. The workshop opens with a dinner on a previous evening to introduce workshoppers and mentors, and includes a panel discussion on career issues. 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. The deadline for applications for presenting and funding has expired. Updated information about the Workshop is available at AWM seeks volunteers to lead discussion groups and to 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

Reception, Thursday, 9:30 p.m.to11:00 p.m. See the listing in the "Social Events" section..

Young Mathematicians Network (YMN)

Concerns of Young Mathematicians: A Town Meeting, Friday, 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., organized by David Kung, St. Mary's College of Maryland. This panel discussion will focus on the current primary concerns of young mathematicians, from undergraduates to newly-tenured professors, with emphasis on audience participation.

Also see details about the poster session (Friday at 2:00 p.m.) and panel discussions (Thursday at 3:50 p.m., Friday at 9:00 a.m., and Saturday at 9:00 a.m.) cosponsored by YMN under the "Other MAA Sessions" section.


Math on the Web, Wednesday to Saturday, various times. The problem of communicating math on the Web is really no different than communicating math via other media. Namely, authoring and displaying mathematical notation is difficult. On top of that, the Web is a dynamic medium, where users can interact with rich media documents in sophisticated ways. This introduces a whole new layer of challenges and possibilities for engaging, interactive communication between authors and readers. There will be several presentations on the exhibit hall floor throughout the meeting.

Mathematical Art Exhibit, organized by Robert Fathauer, Tesselations Company; Nathaniel A. Freidman, ISAMA and SUNY Albany; and Reza Sarhangi, Bridges Conference, Towson University. A popular feature at the last Joint Mathematics Meetings in Atlanta, this exhibit 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 exhibit will be open during the regular exhibit hours.

Summer Program for Women in Mathematics (SPWM), Friday, 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., organized by Murli M. Gupta, George Washington University. SPWM participants will describe their experiences from past programs.
