The below information was sent to the membership of the ACMS recently. If you enjoy the content on this site, then I strongly encourage you to check out the the conference and consider attending.
It is a great privilege that my first email to you all as acting president is to officially announce the 23rd Biennial(ish) ACMS conference at Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, CA on June 1-4, 2022. Details are now posted on the acmsonline.org website. I encourage you to visit the website for complete details as I will only address some highlights below.
Before getting to those highlights, I want to thank Dave Klanderman (president for the past two years) and Bryant Mathews (APU host) for all their work in organizing this conference during these unprecedented times. Speaking of unprecedented times, I know we all hope for “life as normal” by next June, but we can’t be certain that will be the case. ACMS plans to comply with whatever public health policies are in place in Azusa at the time of the conference and the board will keep registrants apprised of what those policies are in a timely manner.
On to the highlights:
Call for papers:
The ACMS is now accepting parallel session proposals. Please use this form to submit your proposal. Most talks will be 15 minutes, but we may be able to accommodate a limited number of 25-minute talks. If you would like to be considered for a 25-minute slot, then please indicate that on your proposal. The deadline for presentation proposals is February 1, 2022, but early submissions are encouraged. Those who present at the conference will have the option to submit a paper by August 31, 2022 for the conference proceedings, which will be peer-reviewed.
Three pre-conference workshops will be held concurrently from Tuesday morning until Wednesday early afternoon. Participants may choose one of the following options:
- Mathematics in Context: its History, Philosophy, and Connections with the Christian Faith
- Integrating Ethics into Your Courses
- Professional Development for graduate students and early career faculty
A full breakdown of costs can be found on the registration form. I did want to emphasize that registration fees will be waived for all first time attendees – this is the year to invite those colleagues you always wanted to invite!
Travel and Child Care Grants:
The ACMS will provide a limited number of reimbursement grants of (up to) $250 for childcare or travel. To be eligible for these grants, you must join the ACMS or renew so that your membership is current through December 31, 2022 and register for the 2022 conference. To apply, complete this form. Applications will be accepted until March 1, 2022. Final decisions on recipients will be made on or before April 1, 2022. All grant funds will be provided in the form of a check which will be issued at the ACMS conference.
