Mathematical Reviews will be at the JMM in Baltimore. The Joint Mathematical Meetings are always huge, with lots of great activities: 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. Everyone is encouraged to stop by the booth for conversation with editors, questions about MathSciNet, questions about reviewing, scheduled and impromptu demos, giveaways, and more. We will be glad to see you.
Complimentary MathSciNet at the meeting. By special arrangement, free MathSciNet will be available when using the wifi at the conference site. This year, access to MathSciNet should be available again in the hotels! All you have to do is point your browser to https://mathscinet.ams.org/mathscinet and we will take care of the rest! And you can pair your mobile device (laptop, tablet, phone) with the JMM MathSciNet to have 30 days of free MathSciNet after the Meetings are over. If you don’t know how to pair a device with a MathSciNet description, either look up this old post or stop by the AMS booth for an explanation.
Demos of MathSciNet. Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of the meeting, at 2:15pm at the Mathematical Reviews area of the AMS 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. Fill out the questionnaire and have a chance to win a $100 gift card! If you can’t come to one of the scheduled demos, stop by the booth any time and we will be happy to give you an impromptu demo.
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. If you are an AMS member and have signed up for the professional photograph service at the JMM, we can use that picture. We will also be set up to take a picture, in case you don’t have a favorite photo available.
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 the jobs. My earlier post explains the open positions, or you can look them up on MathJobs.org. 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 the reviewers, who play a key role in creating the Mathematical Reviews database. Refreshments will be served. The location is the Promenade Room, 1st Floor, Marriott Inner Harbor.
