Participants who registered in advance but after November 19 must pick up their materials at Registration Assistance 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 San Diego.

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 abs-submit@ams.org; include the number 1086 as the subject of the message.) Copies of this list will be available in the Networking Center at the meetings. If you do not wish to be included in any mailing list used for promotional purposes, check the appropriate box on the ARH Form.

Cancellation Policy

Participants who cancel their advance registration for the meetings, minicourses, or short courses by January 4, 2013, will be eligible to receive a 50% refund of fees paid. Participants who cancel their banquet tickets by December 27 will receive a 50% refund of monies paid. No refunds will be issued after these dates.

All mathematicians who wish to attend sessions are expected to register and should be prepared to show their meeting 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 5
  • ORDINARY meetings advance registration (hotel reservations, materials mailed): November 19
  • FINAL meetings advance registration (advance registration, short courses, minicourses, and banquets): December 20, 12:00 a.m. EST

Early Advance Registration: Those who register by the early deadline of November 5 will be included in a random drawing to select winners of complimentary hotel rooms in San Diego. 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 19, so register early!

Ordinary Advance Registration: Those who register after November 5 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 19 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 18. Please note that the December 19 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 Exhibit Hall B of the San Diego Convention Center.
