A summary is provided here for your convenience.

All questions about the appropriateness of a topic or the status of a submission should be addressed to the chair of the track to which you submit the paper too. The list of track chairs can be found below.

Full paper submissions should not exceed 12 single-spaced pages or 7,000 words in total (including all exhibits and references) whichever is less. Text to be Times New Roman 12 pt. font, 1 inch margins, see the AMS website’s “help” tab for detailed formatting information. Be sure to include the title information with each submission but do not include a title page with author identification in the submitted document file. The name of the paper, names and affiliations of each author, and complete contact information for the corresponding author(s) (address, e-mail address, phone) will be requested. Please be sure to spell all author names correctly. Misspelled names create problems in creating the program and effective communication.

It is against AMS policy to submit the same paper or special session proposal to multiple tracks. Also, no individual may be an author or co-author of more than three competitive submissions. Should the limit of three be exceeded, only the first three submissions will be considered for the program and the subsequent submissions will not be eligible to be on the program. Manuscripts will be double blind reviewed. Only papers submitted as full papers can be published in the proceedings as full papers. A full paper may also be published as a one-page abstract.

Structured abstracts submissions should not exceed 4 single-spaced pages following the guidelines at AMS website’s “help”page. A sample structured abstract is linked on the author submission guidelines at AMS website’s “help” page. Structured abstract’s accepted for presentation are published as one-page abstract in the Proceedings.

Special session/panel proposals can be submitted through the conference management system to the special session submissions track. Proposals should contain a 50-word bio of each speaker, a one-page description of the session, and a one-page description of each presentation. If the special session contains individual presentations, each with its own unique “talk” title, then each presentation should be entered into the system separately with a unique identifier in the title tying it back to the special session. In other words, if the special session is about “Fun at AMS,” individual “talks” would have a title like: “Fun at AMS: How to Network Professionally at Receptions.” Please contact the special session submission co-chair prior to uploading a proposal submission. Special session/panel proposals will be reviewed, and those rated as highest quality and most in keeping with the conference theme will be accepted for presentation. The program team welcomes all ideas for presentations, workshops, or other sessions that may be of interest to the AMS Fellows. Please contact the appropriate track chairs with your ideas.

All submissions are due 23 October 2020.
