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 provide guidance to the mathematical sciences community. This will also allow the community to ask questions, share concerns, or offer suggestions on how DMS can do more to address the impact of COVID-19 on the research community. All members of the mathematics research community interested in the work of DMS are welcome to attend.

Events are planned at roughly monthly intervals, and the topics will vary for each event. The event will be in the form of a webinar, starting with a brief presentation of a few selected current topics, with DMS program directors available to answer questions from the community.
