Special Session Celebrating Diversity in Mathematics

The AMS Sectional Meeting has been CANCELLED. See here for more details.

Mathematics spans a diverse range of subdisciplines from pure directions, such as algebra, analysis, topology, and geometry, to applied directions such as mathematical physics, computation and operations research. In this session, we aim to bring together a diverse set of mathematicians researching a diverse set of problems. We define diverse in a broad sense considering field of research, type of institution from which the speakers come from as well as their rank, gender, and ethnicity. This session will underline the wide background of Mathematicians and Mathematics. Since the topics of the talks are broad, the talks will be accessible research talks aimed at a wide audience (colloquium style).
