AWM Activities at the Joint Mathematics Meetings



Information for JMM 2019 will be available soon.

Information about the 2018 JMM follows.


2018 JMM Workshop

AWM at JMM 2018 - For the full itinerary of AWM sponsored activities including the AWM Workshop program, see the Printable Schedule here.

AWM-AMS Noether Lecture

The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) and the American Mathematical Society (AMS) annually presents the Noether Lecture to honor women who have made fundamental and sustained contributions to the mathematical sciences. Emmy Noether was one of the great mathematicians of her time, someone who worked and struggled for what she loved and believed in. Her life and work remain a tremendous inspiration. 

Jill Pipher will give the 2018 AWM-AMS Noether Lecture

Thursday, January 11, 10:05 - 10:55 amRoom 6AB, Upper Level, San Diego Convention Center.


AWM Business Meeting is open to the public and is generally scheduled on the first day of JMM.

AWM Workshop Schedules

AWM Panel AWM typically sponsors a panel discussion on topics of current interests to its members.  For information about the 2018 panel, Being a Mathematician & an Activist, click here.  For more information about past panels select from the list below: 

AWM Workshop for graduate students and women who have received the Ph.D. within the last five years.  

The workshop features short talks by recent PhDs and a poster session by graduate students.  The research area for the talks will be focused, and the research theme will change from year to year.  Poster presenters will be chosen from all fields of mathematics.   A cohort of recent PhDs will join senior women for a day-long series of talks in a JMM special session format.  Graduate students will present posters during the AWM Workshop Reception held the evening before the workshop talks.

As part of the AWM 2018 Joint Meetings Workshop in San Diego in January 2017, there will be a Poster Presentation and Competition. A team of judges will select the top poster. The winner will be offered a prize of a visit to a North American Mathematical Sciences Institute event with basic expenses paid. The prize visit will normally occur within a year of the date of the poster competition unless there are unusual circumstances. The Mathematical Sciences Institutes with the help of Dr. Leslie Hogben, AIM, and Dr. Ulrica Wilson, ICERM, Co-Chairs of the Mathematical Sciences Institute Diversity Committee will work with the recipient of the top poster award to find the best opportunity available for that poster presenter.

AWM Reception and Awards Presentation – open to all JMM conference participants and held immediately after the Gibbs Lecture the first day of the meetings.  The reception is a social event offering an opportunity for AWM to share announcements of interest to the mathematical community, highlight women mathematicians accomplishments and networking.  AWM provides food and a cash bar.  In 2018 we will present the winners of the Dissertation Prize, the inaugural class of the AWM Fellows, AWM Service Award, and the Alice T. Schafer Prize.
