Most of the photographs were taken by Jon King, others by Mike Breen, Brent Deschamp, Annette Emerson, Ina Lindemann and Norman Richert.
The Joint Mathematics Meetings are held for the purpose of advancing mathematical achievement, encouraging research, and providing the communication necessary for progress in the field. These meetings serve to preserve, supplement, and utilize the results of the research of mathematicians worldwide.
The 2007 Joint Mathematics Meetings will be in New Orleans. See Highlights of the 2005 Joint Mathematics Meetings.
