## Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival

Named for esteemed mathematician Julia Robinson, who made crucial contributions to solving Hilbert’s tenth problem, the Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival (JRMF) seeks to inspire joy in mathematics through collaboration, exploration, and discovery. Since 2007, it has supported local hosts in organizing events in 26 states and 17 countries.

## MSRI / Simons Laufer Mathematical Sciences Institute (SLMath)

The Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI), now becoming the Simons Laufer Mathematical Sciences Institute (SLMath) in 2022-23, is a landmark of US and world collaborative mathematical research. Over 1,700 mathematical scientists spend time at the institute's Berkeley, California headquarters each year. It is a place where breakthroughs are made, research areas are created, and brilliant careers are launched. MSRI/SLMath education and outreach programs and film production for public television reach millions worldwide. MSRI/SLMath has been supported since its origins by the National Science Foundation, now joined by other government agencies, private foundations, corporations, individual donors, and over 100 academic institutions.

## National Association of Mathematicians

Since its inception in 1969, the National Association of Mathematicians (NAM) has promoted excellence in the mathematical sciences. While membership is open to everyone, NAM seeks to advance the mathematical development of all underrepresented American minorities in general and African Americans in particular.

## Pi Mu Epsilon

The U.S. national mathematics honor society, Pi Mu Epsilon (PME) has chapters at more than 400 colleges and universities. It promotes mathematical scholarship among undergraduates by awarding grants to support enrichment activities, publishing the work of its members, and funding students’ conference travel.

## Pro Mathematica Arte

Pro Mathematica Arte runs the Budapest Semesters in Mathematics (BSM) and the Budapest Semesters in Mathematics Education (BSME) programs. Through BSM, American and Canadian undergraduates study mathematics in Budapest under eminent Hungarian scholar-teachers. BSME is for undergraduates, recent graduates, and teachers interested in the learning and teaching of secondary mathematics.

## Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics

The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) advances the application of mathematics and computational science to engineering, industry, science, and society. With more than 14,000 individual members and 500 institutional members, SIAM’s community includes activity groups, student chapters, and geographic sections.

## Spectra, the Association for LGBTQ+ Mathematicians

Spectra, the Association for LGBTQ+ Mathematicians, seeks to provide community and to advocate for gender and sexual minority mathematicians. For example, it has recently been pushing for more trans-inclusive naming practices in mathematics and beyond. Spectra held its first official conference in August.

## Transforming Post-Secondary Education in Mathematics

Transforming Post-Secondary Education in Mathematics (TPSE Math) pursues mathematically rich and relevant education for all students, regardless of their field of study. It aims to enable all students to develop the mathematical knowledge and skills necessary for productive engagement in society and in the workplace.
