Georgia Benkart, Emeritus Professor of Mathematics at UW-Madison and a member of the AIM Scientific Research Board, died unexpectedly on April 29, 2022, in Madison, Wisconsin. She will be missed by her colleagues and students and left a lasting legacy of research accomplishments. In 1974 she began her career at UW-Madison after receiving her PhD from Yale. She served the mathematical community in many roles–among them as President of the Association of Women in Mathematics (2009-2011), Associate Secretary of the AMS (2010-2022), and as a member of the AIM Scientific Research Board (2016-2022).

Along with 13 other mathematics organizations AIM has become a partner in the Joint Mathematics Meetings beginning with the recent JMM in Boston, January 4-7, 2023.

AIM’s partnership with the JMM will primarily highlight three initiatives: the Alexanderson Award and Lecture, the Math Circle Network, and the Open Textbook Initiative.
