MOVES: A recreational mathematics conference at MoMath

The Museum of Mathematics in New York (MoMath) have announced their “first-ever conference on recreational mathematics”, MOVES (Mathematics Of Various Entertaining Subjects), from 4th-6th August. They’re offering an exclusive night-time opening followed by a weekend of sessions:

Join the National Museum of Mathematics for its first-ever conference on recreational mathematics.  Explore America’s only museum of math in a night open exclusively to conference attendees, then participate in two days of sessions on the mathematics of games and puzzles. Bring your family along; we’ll have a special family track to entertain.

A “tentative schedule” offers a keynote address by Erik Demaine and slots for contributed talks and meetings. The website also promises a post-conference Math Encounters presentation by Terry Tao on the 7th August, though this isn’t on the Math Encounters website yet.

The deadline to register to attend is 15th May or “until at capacity”. The deadline to submit a research talk or a family activity is the 15th April.
