Special Session, Workshop Proposals Being Accepted

    Scott Hershberger, JMM Communications and Outreach Content Specialist

      The ASA will join other societies and associations as a partner with the American Mathematical Society (AMS) to hold the Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM), the largest annual mathematics gathering in the world, in 2022. Scheduled to take place January 5–8, 2022, in Seattle, Washington, JMM will feature an expanded classification system for sessions and talks in addition to existing MSC classifications to cultivate a broader range of presentations on mathematics research, pedagogy, and inclusion.

      ASA members can now register for the conference at the member rate and are invited to submit a proposal for one of the following two categories:

      • A special session is a collection of talks (typically 5–10 hours in total) devoted to a single area of mathematics or a single topic. Each talk starts on the hour or half hour, lasting about 20 or 45 minutes plus time for a discussion and break.
      • Panels, workshops, and other events typically last 60–90 minutes, although professional development workshops can run for 2–6 hours. Proposals on topics such as creating an inclusive atmosphere in the mathematical sciences community, teaching and learning, professional development and professional concerns, recreational mathematics, and wider issues are encouraged. Also welcome are events that connect communities, such as interdisciplinary workshops or collaborations between mathematical sciences researchers and mathematics education researchers.

      Proposals must be submitted via the portal by April 7.

      The JMM program is organized from the bottom up—sessions and talks occur because individuals and small groups of mathematicians take the initiative to organize them. The committee looks forward to receiving your proposals and working together to make JMM 2022 a welcoming and fulfilling experience for everyone.

      No decisions will be made about proposals until after the submission deadline has passed. Organizers of proposals will be notified whether their proposal has been accepted by May 25. Visit the AMS website for more information.

      AMS is the sole manager of the conference’s logistics, so questions should be directed to the AMS meetings department.
