Dr. Michel Lapidus

Prof. MIchel Lapidus was the AMS official in charge of the 2016 Joint Mathematics Meetings in Seattle. Prof. Michel Lapidus was the AMS Associate Secretary in charge of the scientific program and organization of the 2016 Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM) in Seattle, WA, January 6-9, 2016.

The JMM combines the annual meetings of the American Mathematical Society (AMS) and the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), as well as as hosts sessions of several other mathematics organizations such as ASL (http://www.aslonline.org/index.htm), AWL (www.awm-math.org), NAM (http://www.nam-math.org/), and SIAM (http://www.siam.org/). The JMM is the largest mathematics meeting in the world. This year's meeting has gathered nearly 6,300 participants. It featured many invited addresses, 80 AMS special sessions, and thousands of contributed talks.
