Mini-MOVES Gathering

Saturday, February 19 through Monday, February 21, 2022

(in person)

The Mini-MOVES Gathering has been rescheduled from MLK weekend (January 15–17) to Presidents’ Day weekend (February 19–21) out of an abundance of caution due to the omicron variant.

The fifth biennial MOVES conference has been postponed to August 7–9, 2022 from its previously scheduled dates in January 2022 due to COVID-19-related restrictions surrounding in-person events at the booked venue.

If you can’t bear the thought of waiting until August to discuss the mathematics of entertaining subjects, there’s good news for you: a Mini-MOVES gathering will take place in person over President’s Day weekend, February 19–21, 2022, to whet our appetites for the full conference in August.

Socialize, collaborate, and share!  At Mini-MOVES, you’ll be able to:

  • Join the MOVES community: meet interesting people and make new friendships
  • Bring your favorite puzzles to share or swap
  • Explore the National Museum of Mathematics outside of normal public hours
  • Attend a special presentation by puzzlemaster Peter Winkler
  • Enjoy exclusive discounts at Additions, the shop at MoMath

While plans are not yet finalized, we are working hard to make sure this is a fun weekend for all.

Please contact us with any questions or suggestions at

This event will take place in person at MoMath at 11 East 26th Street.

Note that masks must be worn at all times inside the Museum and that all visitors must show proof of COVID-19 vaccination to be admitted (photocopies of vaccination cards will not be accepted).
