Are you interested in representing the University of Toronto this summer at the Canadian Undergraduate Mathematics Conference taking place July 11th-15th in Saskatoon?
The Math Union will be funding a delegation to this year’s conference. Unfortunately, Saskatoon is a very expensive place to fly, but the department would still like to send up to 10 people. This means that it is likely the case that individuals chosen to be funded will still have to pay some of the cost of the flight (with registration and accommodation fully covered). Based on current approximations this could be anywhere from 400 to 0 dollars, but the Math Union will work hard to get this cost as low as possible.
Delegates will be required to present a 20 minute talk on a mathematical topic.
If you are interested in applying for a spot, please complete the following instructions:
By June 1st (So that we can get a sense of interest)
- Submit a short cover letter containing your subject POSt, year of study, utoronto email, name, and phone number to the math union email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
By June 5th
- Submit a 1-2 page outline of a talk you would like to give, which begins with the approximately 100 word abstract you will submit to the CUMC to the math union email, and attach the cover letter you wrote previously.
- Fill in the CUMC Funding Release Form (https://mu.math.toronto.edu/…/2018/05/CUMC_Funding_Form_201…) and submit it along with a copy of your transcript (a printout from Acorn is okay) to Sonja at the main office (BA6290)
If you would like to apply but would be uninterested in attending unless the cost is sufficiently low, that is fine.
