The transformer that provides electricity to the AMS building in Providence went down on Sunday, April 22. The restoration of our email, website, AMS Bookstore and other systems is almost complete. We are currently running on a generator but overnight a new transformer should be hooked up and (fingers crossed) we should be fine by 8:00 (EDT) Wednesday morning. This issue has affected selected phones, which should be repaired by the end of today. No email was lost, although the accumulated messages are only just now being delivered so you should expect some delay.
Thanks for your patience.
The AMS recognizes the Nebraska Conference for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics (NCUWM) for its significant efforts to encourage women to continue in the study of mathematics.
The mission of the NCUWM is to encourage undergraduate women to go to graduate school in mathematics and to increase the success of those who do. Participation at the NCUWM links young women to a network of peers that helps them maintain the confidence and motivation needed for success in graduate school. Founded in 1999, the conference has grown from 53 participants to 270 undergraduate women participants. In 2012, there were 50 research talks and 34 research posters presented by these undergraduate women. Testimony from alumnae of the conference verifies that the impact of the NCUWM has been life-changing for significant numbers of women. The conference has made a remarkable contribution to the national effort to produce more women PhDs in the mathematical sciences.
The AMS commends the Nebraska Conference for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics for its high level of commitment and successful efforts to improve diversity in the profession of mathematics in the United States.
