AMS von Neumann Symposium

The AMS von Neumann Symposia were created from a bequest endowment from Dr. and Mrs. Carroll V. Newsom. With the support of the Newsom endowment we now honor the mathematical legacy of John von Neumann through the AMS von Neumann Invited Address at the Joint Mathematics Meetings.

The AMS von Neumann Symposium was held every four or five years between 1994 and 2016. Please explore the archival information for each Symposium below.
