Attendees should be familiar with basic LaTeX (for example, be capable of typesetting an assignment, article or small set of notes).



Student Social

Studc invites all student participants to the 2014 CMS Summer Meeting to its Student Social.

Saturday June 7
8:30pm -­­ 10:00pm


Communicating your Research: a Reflection on Mathematical Presentations

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.
