Meetings and ConferencesEngage with colleagues and the latest research

The meetings and conferences of the AMS provides the mathematical community with an environment that is stimulating, rewarding, well-organized, and affordable. Participants have the opportunity to discuss the latest research and network informally with colleagues. Start here to begin exploring the meetings and conferences that we offer and how they can make a positive difference for you.

The 2022 Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM) happened virtually, April 6-9. Originally planned for January 6-9 in Seattle, the JMM was postponed due to concerns re: the Omicron COVID variant. 

MathSafe logoThe AMS participates in MathSafe for all of our meetings and conferences. Our on-site staff are trained and we welcome MathSafe-trained volunteers from the community. Read more .


Note from AMS Secretariat: The AMS is working to provide both in-person and virtual meeting opportunities for our mathematics community. Meeting decisions are made based on location, host institution preferences, community input, as well as CDC, federal, and local guidelines.

National Meetings

Generally known as the Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM), the annual national meetings of the AMS are held for the purpose of advancing mathematical achievement, encouraging research, and providing the communication necessary to progress in the field.

International Meetings

The AMS joins a host society from another country once a year to organize these meetings for members of the mathematical community both in the U.S. and abroad.

Sectional Meetings

The AMS holds eight sectional meetings annually. Generally, there is one meeting in the spring and one in the fall in each section of the U.S.

AMS Short Courses

The AMS offers one or two short courses each year in conjunction with the Joint Mathematics Meetings.

AMS Conferences

The AMS offers regularly scheduled conferences, usually held during the summer, in a relaxed atmosphere such as a university campus or a resort. The two types of conferences in this category are the Mathematics Research Communities and the AMS Annual Mini-conference on Education.

Special Lectures

The AMS hosts a variety of special lectures at the Joint Mathematics Meetings, sectional meetings, and other conferences. These special lectures include the Arnold Ross Lectures, the Colloquium Lectures, the Current Events Bulletin Lectures, the Einstein Public Lectures in Mathematics, the Erdös Lectures for Students, the von Neumann Lectures, and the Gibbs Lectures.
