The largest mathematics meeting in the world, the Joint Mathematics Meetings, returned to Atlanta in early January. Over 6,000 mathematicians attended this week long event. Georgia Tech was well represented at the meeting, with over 30 paper contributions, 6 AMS special sessions hosted by several faculty members, panelists, and many more organizers of sessions and events. 

Two School of Mathematics professors had plenary roles. Michael Damron gave a series of lectures in an American Mathematics Society (AMS) Short Course on Random Growth Models. Damron was also an organizer of an AMS special session. Matt Baker was an invited speaker this year. He presented in the Current Events Bulletin on Hodge Theory in Combinatorics.

The Georgia Tech School of Mathematics is proud to have been well represented at the 2017 JMM.
