Noether Lecture Cancelled over Connections to Policing

From the AWM: “The Association for Women in Mathematics, the American Mathematical Society, and Andrea Bertozzi, announce the cancellation of her Noether Lecture at the 2021 JMM. This decision comes as many of this nation rise up in protest over racial discrimination and brutality by police.”

Bertozzi has been criticized for her work on predictive policing. The AWM apologized for its “insensitivity in the timing of the announcement” of Prof. Bertozzi’s lectureship.
