AARMS Annual Retreat 2016

On March 5th and 6th Dalhousie University hosted the AARMS annual leadership retreat. The participants examined the quality of the main AARMS programs, as well as discussed the challenges facing researchers in Atlantic Canada, and how AARMS can best position itself to help researchers meet these challenges. The weekend ended with wide-ranging discussion about how AARMS can best fulfill its role as an advocate for the Atlantic math community, as well as vision and goals for the coming five years.

In addition to the AARMS executive members, the retreat welcomed the VPs Finance from Dalhousie University, UPEI and UNB, as well as a variety of faculty members from Dalhousie University and Memorial University.



AARMS Graduate Student Summer School 2016

This four-week program welcomes highly regarded faculty from around the world to deliver graduate courses in the mathematical sciences and their applications. This year’s summer school includes applications of Category Theory, Combinatorics and Number Theory.

Applications are now closed for 2016. See here for more information.


AARMS was founded in March 1996 at a time when the National Network for Research in the Mathematical Sciences was being discussed and planned. AARMS exists to encourage and advance research in mathematics, statistics, computer science, and mathematical sciences, in the Atlantic region. In addition, AARMS acts as a regional voice in discussions of the mathematical sciences on a national level. Since its inception, AARMS has played an important role in research activities in the Atlantic region, sponsoring or co-sponsoring numerous meetings and workshops. In the summer of 2002, AARMS initiated an annual Summer School for graduate students and promising undergraduates. Please write to us for information about the next AARMS Summer School.

AARMS is grateful the Province of New Brunswick and to the Province of Nova Scotia for their support for our activities. We are also grateful to Canada’s three mathematical institutes, the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques, the Fields Institute, and the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences as well as the member universities below.
