DMS Virtual Office Hours

About the series

The Division of Mathematical Sciences (DMS) is hosting virtual office hours to share information about NSF’s current operations and to provide guidance to the mathematical sciences community. All members of the mathematical sciences research community interested in the work of DMS are welcome to attend.

Virtual office hours are held at roughly monthly intervals; topics vary. The event will be in the form of a webinar, starting with a brief presentation of selected current topics, with DMS program directors available to answer questions from the community.
