The Canadian Mathematical Society (CMS) welcomes and invites proposals for mini-courses for the CMS 75th Anniversary Summer Meeting in Ottawa from June 5-8, 2020.
Since 2019, the CMS meeting programme has included a limited number of three-hour mini-courses with the following objectives:
  • Initiating attendees to the subject of a novel scientific session, so as to broaden the scope of its audience and appeal; or
  • Introducing attendees to a cutting-edge area of applied mathematics, for both research and professional interests; or
  • Providing professional development opportunities and advice, particularly for graduate students and new PhDs.

The CMS 75th Anniversary Summer Meeting mini-courses will be held Friday, June 5th and Monday June 8th. Attendees will be charged a small registration fee. 

Proposals should include:

  • The names, affiliations, and contact information of the main organizers;
  • A title and brief description of the focus and purpose of the mini-course, being particularly clear on how it meets one of the three objectives outlined above;
  • A brief description of the anticipated mathematical background of the audience.

As the number of mini-courses is limited, please submit your proposal to the Scientific Directors (below) before February 29, 2020.

With thanks,

Scientific Directors:

Ailana Fraser (University of British Columbia)

Monica Nevins (University of Ottawa)
