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. 

Registration On-Site

Advance registration is now closed. Registration will open again at the meeting.

The Joint Meetings Registration Desk will be located in Lobby C, Meeting Room Level of the Colorado Convention Center. It will be open on Tuesday (1/14) 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. (advanced registration pick-up open until 7:30 p.m.); Wednesday (1/15) 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.; Thursday (1/16) and Friday (1/17) 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.; and Saturday (1/18) 7:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Program Books

In order to keep registration fees as low as possible, save on postage, and make the JMM more environmentally friendly, program books were not distributed or mailed in advance without your request. Extra copies of the program book will be available to purchase on-site at the meeting, while supplies last.

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.

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 were not 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 and distributed at the Joint Mathematics Meetings Registration Desk at the meeting.

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 box on the On-Site Registration/Housing Form. All who do not opt-in, 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.
