Update: the 2020 Fall Sectional Meetings will be held virtually. They will occur on the original dates. Further details will be posted as soon as they become available. In particular, we will post information about changes to deadlines for abstracts. Please email any questions to our Meetings staff.
The AMS is grateful to the four institutions originally scheduled to host these meetings and appreciates their understanding. We are working to arrange for them to host an in-person Sectional meeting in the future. These sites include University of Texas at El Paso, Penn State, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and University of Utah.
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.
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 on-site AMS Bookstore. In addition, Erdős Memorial Lectures and Einstein Public Lectures are held in conjunction with some of these meetings.
In an effort to spread the cost of the sectional meetings more equitably among all who attend and hence help keep registration fees low, starting with the 2020 fall sectional meetings, you must be registered for a sectional meeting in order to submit an abstract for that meeting. You will be prompted to register on the Abstracts Submission Page. In the event that your abstract is not accepted or you have to cancel your participation in the program due to unforeseen circumstances, your registration fee will be reimbursed.

It is the goal of the AMS to ensure that its conferences are accessible to all, regardless of disability. The AMS shall strive, unless it is not practicable, to choose venues that are fully accessible to the physically handicapped.
