Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
American Mathematical Society - AMS Joint Mathematics & National Meetings 2018
Generally known as the Joint Mathematics Meetings, the national meetings of the AMS are held annually for the purpose of advancing mathematical achievement, encouraging research, and to provide the communication necessary to progress in the field. These meetings serve to preserve, supplement, and utilize the results of the research of mathematicians throughout the world.The national meetings are held jointly with the Mathematical Association of America and always take place during the first or second week of January. The AMS portion of the program for each of these meetings includes up to five Invited Addresses and ordinarily at least twenty (20) Special Sessions. In addition, these meetings include multiple short courses, minicourses, tutorials, exhibits, social events, and networking and employment opportunities. The largest mathematics meeting in the world is returning to San Diego where record breaking numbers are expected! The Mathematical Association of America (MAA) and the American Mathematical Society (AMS) invite you to join them for the 2018 Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM).
