Join the NationalAcademies of Sciences,Engineering, and Medicine for a webinar series on exciting and upcoming mathematics research across an array of topics. Webinars will take place on the second Tuesday of each month from 2-3 p.m. ET, with two speakers and live Q&A. See below for the list of dates and themes for each webinar.
This is the only registration page for all webinars in the series. When registering, please make sure you select all the webinars you would like to attend. You will only receive reminder emails and login instructions for webinars you have registered for.
As each webinar approaches, we will post more information about the speakers on the webinar series page at nas.edu/mathfrontiers.
This webinar series is made possible by the generous core support of the National Academies' Board on Mathematical Sciences and Analytics from the National Science Foundation Division of Mathematical Sciences and the Department of Energy Advanced Scientific Computing Research.
