CMS Winter Meeting Opportunity

The Canadian Mathematical Society Student Committee (CMS Studc) invites students (undergraduate and graduate) to present a talk on a topic of their choice on December 8-11 at the Student Research Session during the 2017 CMS Winter Meeting in Waterloo, Ontario.
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, Aram Dermenjian and Robert Redelmeier, at
To register for the session, contact the organizers of the session with a draft abstract by November 15. Notice of acceptance will be given shortly thereafter. 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 October 31, $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.
