Selected Highlights of the 2007 Joint Mathematics Meetings
A record number of attendees, over 5200, came to the 2007 Joint Mathematics Meetings of the American Mathematical Society (AMS) and Mathematical Association of America (MAA) in New Orleans, January 5-8. Below are links to descriptions of selected events from the meeting:

Mathematical Sciences Employment Center
Each year the Employment Center is part of the JMM, but because of updates, we feel that descriptions of past Employment Centers may be more misleading than they are informative. See a description of the Employment Center at the 2013 JMM in San Diego for information on a modern Employment Center.
|Who Wants to Be a Mathematician
A raffle and t-shirt sale along with donations raised $10,000 for the Second Harvest of New Orleans Food Bank BackPack Program.
Prizes and winners are:
Most of the photographs on these pages were taken by Wayne Catalano, others are by Diane Boumenot (AMS), Mike Breen (AMS), Bill Butterworth (DePaul University), Brie Finegold (2006 AMS-AAAS Media Fellow, University of California Santa Barbara), and Fernando Gouvêa (Colby College and editor of Focus).
The Joint Mathematics Meetings are held for the purpose of advancing mathematical achievement, encouraging research, and providing the communication necessary for progress in the field. These meetings serve to preserve, supplement, and utilize the results of the research of mathematicians worldwide.
