AARMS to Move to a New Online Proposal System

From October 1, 2016 our current online proposal system will cease operating. On that date we will be moving to a new system with a new service provider. The new system will facilitate the submission of proposals for conferences and workshops, Collaborative Research Groups and Postdoctoral Fellowship awards. Those of you with accounts on the old system this will need to open a new account on the new system – thank you in advance for your patience. Exact details will be posted here when the new system is up and running. Thank you also to Petrus IT who provided our service for the past several years.

A Message from Canada’s Mathematical Sciences Institutes for Canada’s Fundamental Science Review

The Mathematical Sciences are the foundation of any advanced research ecosystem, and Canada’s mathematical sciences institutes have been instrumental in supporting this ecosystem. They do so by providing scientific leadership, by developing coherent national strategies for mathematical and statistical discovery and innovation, by transcending geographic and disciplinary barriers, by maximizing provincial leveraging, by spearheading international partnerships, and by connecting the research enterprise with the imperatives of providing training and education at all levels.

AARMS Welcomes New Director

AARMS is happy to announce that Sanjeev Seahra will take up the directorship from July 1, 2016. Sanjeev will take over from Jeannette Janssen, whose term ends on June 30.

Sanjeev Seahra has been an Associate Professor of Applied Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at UNB since 2012. He is well recognized in his field of mathematical physics, and he is the principal organizer of the AARMS Collaborative Research Group on Mathematical and Physical Aspects of Black Holes.

We welcome Sanjeev to his new position.



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, collaborative research groups postdoctoral fellowships and mathematical outreach.  Since the summer of 2002, AARMS has been running 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, the Province of Nova Scotia and the Research & Development Corporation of Newfoundland and Labrador 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.

Acadia University
Cape Breton University
Dalhousie University
Memorial University
Mount Allison University
Mount Saint Vincent University
Saint Francis Xavier University
