(formerly at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Chattanooga, TN)
Now meeting virtually, hosted by the American Mathematical Society. October 10-11, 2020 (Saturday-Sunday)
Associate Secretary: Brian D. Boe, AMS email@example.com
Update: The Fall Southeastern Sectional Meeting will be held VIRTUALLY on the original dates. Times shown in the program are Eastern Daylight Time. (10:00 am EDT (Eastern Daylight Time) is equivalent to 9:00 am CDT, 8:00 am MDT, and 7:00 am PDT.) Please keep this in mind as you decide which talks you want to see. Further details will be posted as soon as they are available. Send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Registration: All participants are expected to register for sectional meetings. The importance of registering for the meetings cannot be overemphasized. Paying a registration fee helps to support a wide range of activities associated with planning, organizing, and executing the meetings. Fees (advance and during the meeting) are US\$25 for AMS members, US\$75 for nonmembers, US\$10 for students and unemployed mathematicians, and US\$15 for emeritus members. NEW! If you register for two fall sectional meetings, you qualify for free registrations for the other two. Participants may cancel registrations made in advance by emailing email@example.com. 100% refunds will be issued for any advance registrations cancelled by the first day of the meeting. After this date, no refunds will be issued.
To register online go to https://ebus.ams.org/ebus/Meetings/MeetingDetails.aspx?productId=746402057. You will be required to create a web account, if you do not already have one. This will be a quick setup process, requiring only a username (email address), password, name, and address. Once you create the account, you will be able to continue on to register for the meeting. The same username and password may be used to register for all future sectional meetings. If you have already set up a web account with the American Mathematical Society, you should use your current username and password. You DO NOT have to set up a new account. However, please make sure that the email address (username) that you are using is current.
Note: If you are registering for a third or fourth AMS fall sectional meeting, choose your regular registration category. When you check out, it will not be necessary to enter credit card information; simply click "Complete Registration" and the 100% discount will be applied.
We hope that you will find this system easy to use. Once your information is in our system, you will not have to enter your contact information for any future sectional meetings, unless it has changed, thus making your registration faster and easier. For any questions or concerns about this process, please contact the Mathematics Meetings Service Bureau at firstname.lastname@example.org
For your convenience, the following changes have been made to the website to make the program more accessible and mobile-friendly.
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 18, 2020. Final decisions on recipients will be made on or before September 8, 2020.
It is the goal of the AMS to ensure that its conferences are accessible to all, regardless of disability. The AMS will strive to make all as accessible as possible..
If special needs accommodations are necessary in order for you to participate in an AMS Sectional Meeting, please communicate your needs in advance to the AMS Meetings Department by:
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 at www.mathsociety.ethicspoint.com. 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 usually at the meeting registration desk), and that person can provide advice about how to proceed.
For AMS policy statements concerning discrimination and harassment, see the AMS Anti-Harassment Policy at www.ams.org/about-us/governance/policy-statements/anti-harassment-policy.
Questions about this welcoming environment policy should be directed to the AMS Secretary at www.ams.org/about-us/governance/sec-contact.
