The AMS will provide a limited number of reimbursement grants of US\$125 per family to help with the cost of child care for registered participants at the meeting. The funds may be used for any form of child care that frees a parent to participate more fully in the meeting. Grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, one per family, and one per season (i.e. Spring or Fall), the latter depending on the amount of grants available. Registration for the meeting as well as membership in the AMS is required to apply for this program.
Information about applying for child care grants is on Mathprograms.org, and applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until August 4, 2020. Final decisions on recipients will be made on or before August 18, 2020.
The AMS strives to ensure that participants in its activities enjoy a welcoming environment. In all its activities, the AMS seeks to foster an atmosphere that encourages the free expression and exchange of ideas. The AMS supports equality of opportunity and treatment for all participants, regardless of gender, gender identity or expression, race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion or religious belief, age, marital status, sexual orientation, disabilities, or veteran status.
Harassment is a form of misconduct that undermines the integrity of AMS activities and mission.
The AMS will make every effort to maintain an environment that is free of harassment, even though it does not control the behavior of third parties. A commitment to a welcoming environment is expected of all attendees at AMS activities, including mathematicians, students, guests, staff, contractors and exhibitors, and participants in scientific sessions and social events. To this end, the AMS will include a statement concerning its expectations towards maintaining a welcoming environment in registration materials for all its meetings, and has put in place a mechanism for reporting violations. Violations may be reported confidentially and anonymously to (855) 282-5703 or here. The reporting mechanism ensures the respect of privacy while alerting the AMS to the situation. Violations may also be brought to the attention of the coordinator for the meeting (who is normally at the meeting registration desk), and that person can provide advice about how to proceed. In the case of a virtual meeting, the coordinator can be reached online during the meeting.
For AMS policy statements concerning discrimination and harassment, see the AMS Anti-Harassment Policy.
Questions about this welcoming environment policy should be directed to the AMS Secretary.
Attendees and speakers are encouraged to tweet about the meeting using the hashtag #AMSmtg.
