AARMS-CMS Student Poster Session
Students are encouraged to present a poster with a topic of their choice on Saturday June 7 and Sunday June 8.
To register for the poster session, the abstract has to be submitted and registration has to be paid by May 20.
Setup will take place on Friday June 6th, starting at 3:00 pm, or on Saturday June 7th before 8:00 am. Presenters are asked to give a short (~3min) presentation on Saturday June 7th from 4:15pm to 5:15pm to the judges and remain at their posters during judging to answer questions.

Each winner will receive two complimentary tickets to the banquet, as well as $100 and a framed award certificate.
STUDC and the Department of Mathematics at the University of Manitoba are offering participants a limited number of subsidies of $40 each to cover poster printing costs. These subsidies are assigned on a first come basis and are subject to some conditions.
STUDC Student Workshop - Intermediate LaTeX Tutorial
Friday, June 6, 13:30 - 15:30
Westminster Room, Delta Winnipeg
This workshop is designed to help participants improve the quality and readability of their LaTeX documents. Topics include advanced mathematical formatting, an overview of the mathtools and tikZ packages, optimal usage of equation environments and theorem environments, and tips and tricks to improve workflow. Attendees should be familiar with basic LaTeX (for example, be capable of typesetting an assignment, article or small set of notes).
Studc invites all student participants to the 2014 CMS Summer Meeting to its Student Social.
Saturday June 7
8:30pm - 10:00pm
Studc is inviting all graduate students and postdocs to participate in a special scientific session focused on clearly communicating their work. This session is mainly meant to give young researchers an opportunity to reflect on and refine their academic presentation skills. To emphasize the focus on communicating clearly, students will be challenged with presenting an introductory talk about their field to a general mathematical audience. All participants are encouraged to opt into receiving anonymous feedback on their talk from both the session chairs and members of the audience. This constructive feedback will allow participants to identify their strengths and weaknesses as presenters in order to become more effective and engaging speakers in this interactive scientific session..
Please submit your abstracts here.
Student Travel Support
With the support of the University of Manitoba, Faculty of Science, CRM, the Fields Institute, PIMS and the University of Lethbridge (Jiping [Jim] Liu Memorial Travel Fund), grants are available to partially fund the travel and accommodation costs for bona fide graduate students at a Canadian or other university. Preference is given to Canadian students. To apply for this funding, applicants should ask their supervisor or departmental graduate advisor to complete the online application form no later than March 17.
Applicants will be notified early in April of the funding decision. If successful, the student will receive a cheque for reimbursement of expenses after the meeting and upon completion and submission of the standard Travel Expense Claim Form, along with appropriate original receipts.
For more information, please contact the Meeting Committee.
Application Form - Please click here to access the online application. All those who submitted applications will hear from the Canadian Mathematical Society in early April.
