Student Research Presentations

The Canadian Mathematical Society Student Committee (CMS Studc) invite students (undergraduate and graduate) to present a talk on a topic of their choice on June 24th and June 25th at the Student Research Presentations Session during the 2016 CMS Summer Meeting in Edmonton, AB.

These presentations should introduce the student’s research to a general mathematical audience. If requested by the presenter, an experienced mentor will be available to provide feedback on the talk.

Any questions about the student sessions should be directed to the student session organizers, Muhammad Khan and Kyle MacDonald, at studc-summer16-session@cms.math.ca

To register for the session, contact the organizers of the session with a draft abstract by April 30th. Notice of acceptance will be given by May 2nd. Abstracts submitted after this deadline will be considered if space remains.

Presenters will also have to register for the meeting, which can be done through this form. Student members of the CMS who are presenting a poster or talk have significantly reduced registration costs ($30 until May 6th, $45 thereafter). If you are not currently a member of the CMS, talk to your department chair about the possibility of becoming a university-sponsored student member for a reduced fee.

There is a limited amount of travel support available for graduate students. The deadline for applications to this fund is April 30th. The application form is available here and more information on these funds can be found on this page.

Student Social

The Canadian Mathematical Society Student Committee (CMS Studc) invites student attendees to join us for food and drink at this year’s Student Social on Friday June 24th at Devaney's Pub during the 2016 CMS Summer Meeting in Edmonton, Alberta. Studc will be providing complimentary appetizers, as well as the first round of drinks.

Devaney's Pub is located on campus at 11113 87 Ave NW, approximately a 10-15 minute walk east of the Lister Centre. Studc members will be arriving at the pub at 8:00 PM sharp. Please visit this link for walking directions to the restaurant.

Graduate Student Travel Support

With the support of CRM, the Fields Institute, and PIMS 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 April 30.

Applicants will be notified late in September 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 late September.
