It will be the third time UCR Mathematics hosts an AMS Sectional meeting. AMS sectional meeting welcomes high quality special session proposals in a variety of fields connected to mathematics, including Pure and Applied Math, Computational Math, Mathematical Physics, Mathematical Biology, Statistics, Math Education, Philosophy of Math, and Scientific Computing.

The deadline for proposals of special sessions is April 14, 2017.The preparation of such a proposal should not take more than half-an-hour. Every proposal should be sent to the AMS Associate Secretary for the Western Section (Dr. Lapidus) via e-mail ( and should contain the following information:
