The 13th AIMS Conference will return, June 1-5, 2023, to the University of North Carolina Wilmington, where the 4th AIMS Conference was hosted in 2002. This upcoming event is the continuation of the 12th AIMS Conference in Taipei in 2018, after the postponements first from Atlanta and then from Rome due to the pandemic. After more than 2 years of inactivity, it is time to welcome our academic friends and colleagues from all over the world to gather together, face-to-face, to renew friendship and share working and living experiences of the past 3 years. All are welcome.
Detailed information will be posted soon.
An alternative to the Read & Publish agreement, Open Subscription allows eligible authors to publish gold open access, free of charge in the individual journal(s) ordered by their institution. This may be a good option for institutions that wish to support their authors with open access publishing in specific subject areas. No written agreement is necessary for Open Subscription, but it is the eligible author's responsibility to notify AIMS their article should be published open access. Visit our Open Access and Journal Prices pages to learn more about this new offer.
AIMS sends our sincere congratulations to the 2022 Fields Medalists, Maryna Viazovska, James Maynard, June Huh and Hugo Duminil-Copin! This is one of the highest honors as a mathematician and we join the rest of the community in praising these four Fields Medalists for their existing work and for the promise of future achievement.
Maryna Viazovska was awarded for the proof that the E8 lattice provides the densest packing of identical spheres in 8 dimensions, and further contributions to related extremal problems and interpolation problems in Fourier analysis.
James Maynard was Awarded for contributions to analytic number theory, which have led to major advances in the understanding of the structure of prime numbers and in Diophantine approximation.
June Huh was awarded for bringing the ideas of Hodge theory to combinatorics, the proof of the Dowling–Wilson conjecture for geometric lattices, the proof of the Heron–Rota–Welsh conjecture for matroids, the development of the theory of Lorentzian polynomials, and the proof of the strong Mason conjecture.
Hugo Duminil-Copin was awarded for solving longstanding problems in the probabilistic theory of phase transitions in statistical physics, especially in dimensions three and four.
AIMS is proud to announce that Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems - Series S is now ranked 7 out of 85 Discrete Mathematics and Combinatorics journals, with a CiteScore of 3.6. We are also pleased to see Journal of Dynamics & Games increased its CiteScore from 0.6 to 3.3 in 2021, and ranked as Q1 in Statistics and Probability. These leading CiteScores are undoubtedly a testament to their Editorial Boards and every author who contributed high quality papers to the journals. 11 additional AIMS journals saw an increase in CiteScores in 2021. We hope you join us in our enthusiasm for the onging success and future trajectory of AIMS journals!
Today marks Maryam Mirzakhani's birthday and our 4th year celebrating International Women in Mathematics Day. The goal of the day is to inspire women everywhere to celebrate their achievements in mathematics, and to encourage an open, welcoming and inclusive work environment for everybody. In 2014, Maryam Mirzakhani was awarded the Fields Medal for "her outstanding contributions to the dynamics and geometry of Riemann surfaces and their moduli spaces." Today, we honor her and all of the remarkable women in mathematics.
Dennis Parnell Sullivan of Stony Brook University, USA, and the Graduate School and University Center of the City University of New York, USA has been awarded the 2022 Abel Prize “for his groundbreaking contributions to topology in its broadest sense, and in particular its algebraic, geometric and dynamical aspects.” Congratulations to you, Professor Sullivan, on achieving such a significant milestone! Learn more about Professor Sullivan's research in his biography and by reading his Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems article, "The circle and the solenoid."
Professor Corinna Ulcigrai, University of Zurich, has been invited to speak at the International Congress of Mathematicians 2022 (ICM 2022) on Monday, July 11. She will be a speaker in Section 9. Dynamics of the virtual event. Professor Ulcigrai's fields of interest are ergodic theory, dynamical systems and Teichmueller dynamics. We are especially proud to share this news, as Professor Ulcigrai is an Editor for our Journal of Modern Dynamics. Visit the ICM 2022 Program & Sections page to learn more about this prestigious event.
In celebration of Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month, AIMS is offering hybrid journal authors that opt for Open Choice a 50% discount on Article Processing Charges (APCs) until April 30, 2022. The goal of #MathStatMonth is to increase the understanding and appreciation of mathematics and statistics - promoting the sustainable transition to Open Access publishing is our way of supporting this goal. Hybrid journal authors may opt for Open Choice at any stage of publication by emailing AIMS Production Editor, Charley Denton, and the discount will automatically be applied to their invoice. Although payment does not necessarily need to be made by the end of April, Charley must be informed by then if an author is opting for Open Choice to receive the discount. Learn more about Open Choice and our Open Access options here.
AIMS will be offering a 30% discount on our top-selling books at various points throughout the next year. Our free e-books will be featured as well. Sign up for email alerts and follow us on social media for discount codes, brief summaries, and information on how these impactful books might be applicable to your research. You can sign up for email alerts on any of our journal homepages and follow us on Twitter , Facebook and LinkedIn .
The Executive Committee of the International Mathematical Union (IMU) has decided to hold the International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) 2022 as a virtual event. This event will follow the original time schedule from Saint Petersburg and attendance will be free of charge. This decision has been made in response to recent developments in Russia and Ukraine. AIMS sends their sympathies to the Ukrainian people during this difficult time.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, the 13th AIMS Conference on Dynamical Systems, Differential Equations and Applications is further rescheduled to take place in the summer of 2023. Stay tuned for the location and precise dates.
Due to serious concerns regarding the Omicron variant of COVID-19, the organizing partners of the Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM) have decided to postpone the 2022 JMM, originally scheduled to be held in Seattle, January 5-8. A virtual meeting will be scheduled later in 2022. AIMS does not currently plan to attend the virtual meeting, but we will let you know if that changes. You may check the JMM website to stay informed on any updates for the 2022 virtual meeting.
AIMS has published a total of 37 articles from 12 Fields Medalists over the years. This includes work from Artur Avila, Jean Bourgain, Charles Fefferman, Alessio Figalli, Elon Lindenstrauss, P.-L. Lions, Gregory Margulis, Maryam Mirzkhani, Terence Tao, Cédric Villani, Shing-Tung Yau and Jean-Christophe Yoccoz.
