The Canadian Mathematical Society (CMS) welcomes and invites new session proposals for scientific sessions for the 2021 CMS Summer meeting in Ottawa from June 7-11, 2021. Priority will be given to sessions in complementary areas; new organizers are invited to contact existing organizers of closely related sessions to optimize complementarity. Existing sessions can be found here: 

Proposals should include

  1. names, affiliations, and contact information for two (or more) session co-organizers,
  2. a title and brief description of the focus and purpose of the session,
  3. a preliminary list of potential speakers with their affiliations, along with a total number of expected speakers. 

Potential organizers are encouraged to consider diversity in their selection of session invitees.

Sessions will take place June 7-11.  They will be advertised in the CMS Notes, on the CMS website and in the AMS Notices. Speakers will be requested to submit abstracts, which will be published on the website and in the meeting program.

Those wishing to organize a session should send a proposal to the Scientific Directors:

Ailana Fraser (University of British Columbia)
Monica Nevins (University of Ottawa)
Mateja Šajna (University of Ottawa)

Proposals should be submitted by April 1, 2021.
