CMS-MITACS Joint Conference 2007
May 31 - June 3, 2007
Delta Hotel, Winnipeg, Manitoba
We strongly encourage the participation of students at the CMS-MITACS Joint Conference. Towards this, we are allocating significant funds to help defray the cost of poster preparation, travel and accommodation for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows.
Subsidies are available for graduate students or postdoctoral fellows who are studying at a Canadian University and who are undertaking research in which mathematics plays a central role. Student subsidies will only be granted to those students who have paid their registration fees by April 1, 2007, and who actively participate in the conference. Such participation could include presenting a poster, giving a talk in a session, joining the MITACS student council, or volunteering to help during the conference. For the latter, a limited number of volunteers are needed and are available on a first-come first-serve basis by using the on-line registration form.
UPDATE: We are pleased to announce that Student Subsidies have been extended to include those students who register after the Early Bird deadline. However, you must still actively participate in the conference in one of the four ways listed above.
|Students traveling from:||Maximum subsidy:|
|Newfoundland||up to $750|
|New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island||up to $700|
|Quebec, Ontario||up to $500|
|Manitoba (more than 100 kms from Winnipeg)||up to $100|
|Saskatchewan||up to $350|
|Alberta||up to $400|
|British Columbia||up to $600|
These funds are intended to subsidize travel costs (air fare, car rental, mileage) and dorm-style (shared) accommodations. The Place Louis Riel offers suites that are suitable for shared accommodations. (Students may register at the CMS Studc Forum to discuss sharing arrangements with other attendees. Account verification may take up to 24 hours.)
Students should discuss additional travel subsidies with their supervisor. The conference organizers will not book accommodation or travel for you. Please make your own arrangements, and apply for reimbursement after the conference.
To maximize cost efficiencies, we encourage students from the same school to travel together where they are in driving range of the conference. Students are expected to participate fully in all aspects of conference, and reimbursements are at the sole discretion of the conference organizers.
Reimbursement Forms will be sent out electronically immediately after the conference. You must submit original receipts, including boarding passes for submission. Claims must be submitted within four weeks of the conference. Claims postmarked after July 4, 2007 will not qualify for reimbursement. Please allow four to six weeks to receive your payment.
