AMS Sectional Meetings

The AMS holds eight sectional meetings annually in four regions, or sections, of the U.S. Generally, there is one meeting in the spring and one in the fall in section of the U.S. Each meeting usually runs for two days, with four invited addresses and as many special sessions as time and space allow. The sectional meetings also include social events and opportunities to shop at the onsite AMS Bookstore. In addition, Erdős Memorial Lectures and Einstein Public Lectures are held in conjunction with some of these meetings. In 2013 over XXX individuals from the U.S. and other countries attended AMS sectionals.
