Studc invites all student participants to the 2012 CMS Winter Meeting to its Student Social on Saturday, December 8. We will go to the TELUS Fire on Ice in Old Port Montreal. This will be the perfect occasion to visit the Old Port of Montreal under the lights of the fireworks. The show starts at 8:00 PM. We will meet in the hotel lobby and leave at 7:30PM. After the fireworks, we will go to Les 3 Brasseurs in Old Montreal (105 Rue St-Paul EST). You are invited to share some food and beer with your colleagues. A map with all directions will be available at the meeting. If you can't make it for 7:30, you are welcome to join us later.
Student Travel Support
With the support of 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 September 15.
Applicants will be notified early in October 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.
