Mathematical Reviews at JMM in Seattle

JMMMD2016-web-header croppedThe Joint Mathematics Meetings are being held January 6-9, 2016 in Seattle.   There is always a lot going on at the meetings:  invited lectures, special sessions, editorial meetings, exhibits, and the chance to connect with old friends.  Mathematical Reviews is planning several activities during the meetings.  Most will be at the Mathematical Reviews area of the AMS booth in the exhibit hall, Hall 4A, Level 4, Washington State Convention Center.  All are encouraged to stop by the booth for conversation with editors, questions, impromptu demos, giveaways, and more.   We will be glad to see you.

Complimentary MathSciNet at the meeting.  By special arrangement, MathSciNet will be available when using the wifi at the conference site.  This will not carry over to the hotels.  For that, you would have to pair your device for remote access…

Pair your device for remote access.  Representatives from Mathematical Reviews and the AMS will be available at the booth to show you how to pair your laptop or other device with a MathSciNet subscription.  It is very easy, and very convenient.

Demos of MathSciNet.  Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of the meeting, at 2:15pm at the Mathematical Reviews booth, there will be demonstrations of how to use MathSciNet.  The demos will be by experts, who know lots of great ways to use MathSciNet.

MathSciNet Challenge for students.  Come to the booth and complete the short quiz for a chance to win a prize.  The challenge will be much easier for those of you who attend one of the demonstrations.

Update your Author Profile Page.  Representatives will be available at the booth to help you update your author profile page on MathSciNet, including the opportunity to add a photograph or  your name in its native script.  We will be set up to take a picture, in case you don’t have a favorite photo available.    Special t-shirts will be available (free!) to those who update their profiles.

Working at Mathematical Reviews.  If you are interested in possibly working at Mathematical Reviews as an Associate Editor, the JMM would provide a good opportunity to find out more about what we do.  My earlier post explains the open position.  Stop by the booth to talk with us!

Mathematical Reviews Reception: Friday, 6:00 pm– 7:00 pm. All friends of the Mathematical Reviews (MathSciNet) are invited to join reviewers and MR editors and staff (past and present) for a special reception in honor of all of the efforts that go into the creation and publication of the Mathematical Reviews database. Refreshments will be served. The location is the Aspen Room in the Sheraton Hotel.

I hope to see you in Seattle!
