Other Hotels

The AMS is not holding room blocks at the following properties. These properties are located near the university and are listed for your convenience. The AMS is not responsible for any rate or charges or for the quality of these accommodations.

Housing Warning

Please beware of aggressive housing bureaus that target potential attendees of a meeting. They are sometimes called "room poachers" or "room-block pirates" and these companies generally position themselves as a meeting's housing bureau, convincing attendees to unknowingly book outside the official room block. They call people who they think will more likely than not attend a meeting and lure them with room rates that are significantly less than the published group rate -- for a limited time only. And people who find this offer tempting may hand over their credit card data, believing they have scored a great rate and their housing is a done deal. Unfortunately, this often turns out to be the start of a long, costly nightmare.

These housing bureaus are not affiliated with the American Mathematical Society or any of its meetings, in any way. The AMS would never call anyone to solicit reservations for a meeting. The only way to book a room at a rate negotiated for an AMS Sectional Meeting is via a listing on AMS Sectional Meetings pages or Notices of the AMS. The AMS cannot be responsible for any damages incurred as a result of hotel bookings made with unofficial housing bureaus.

Registration

Advance registration for this meeting will open mid-January, 2019, exact date tba. Detailed information on how to register will be posted by the beginning of December, 2018. Fees will be US\$63 for AMS members, US\$95 for nonmembers, and US\$10 for students, unemployed mathematicians, and emeritus members.
