AARMS COVID-19 Seminar: Matthew Betti (Mount Allison)* and Jane Heffernan (York)

July 8, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Zoom seminar

Scenario-based modeling of healthcare demand and PPE usage during the COVID-19 pandemic One of the big risks during the current pandemic is stress and overburdening of the healthcare system, and a possible scarcity of resources. We will present a three module model that projects possible epidemic outcomes and subsequently measures healthcare demand and PPE usage for different jurisdictions across Canada. We present as well a simple model which we fit to current cases with some novel sampling techniques which allows…

Quantum Gravity 2020

July 13, 2020 - July 17, 2020
Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, 31 Caroline Street North
Waterloo, Ontario N2L 2Y5 Canada
+ Google Map

The conference “Quantum Gravity 2020“ has a deliberately broad scope. We aim to include participants from all current approaches to quantum gravity, as well as researchers working on the phenomenology of quantum gravity. The main goal of the meeting is to assess the progress made and to constructively and openly discuss open questions in our understanding of quantum gravity. A second goal is to work towards combining the insights gained in the various approaches. In its overall goal as well…

CMS COVID-19 Research and Education Meeting (CCREM)

July 13, 2020 - July 16, 2020
Virtual Meeting

The CMS had to postpone the 2020 CMS Summer Meeting planned for this June due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since we cannot hold a meeting in person, the CMS still wants to provide a virtual platform for mathematicians to come together and learn during this difficult time. We feel that a meeting focused on the changes caused by COVID-19 to the way we plan, teach and do research would be of great benefit to the Canadian mathematical community. The session…

AARMS COVID-19 Seminar: Sana Jahedi (UNB) and James A. Yorke (Maryland)

July 15, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Zoom seminar

When the best pandemic models are the simplest As a pandemic of coronavirus spreads across the globe, people debate policies to mitigate its severity. Many complex, highly detailed models have been developed to help policy setters make better decisions. However, the basis of these models is unlikely to be understood by non-experts. We describe the advantages of simple models for covid-19. We say a model is “simple’’ if its only parameter is the rate of contact between people in the…

Diversity in Mathematics 2020

August 4, 2020 - August 14, 2020

We propose a multi-year, multi-level approach to promoting diversity and inclusivity in STEM. The annual two-week program encompasses concurrent, partially overlapping events targeting two distinct groups: (a) A summer school for top undergraduate women in Canada and the northwest United States, specializing in mathematics or a related STEM field such as computer science, physics and statistics. The program will expose them to the many facets of the mathematical sciences in an intense two week immersion. Career opportunities in academia and…

PIMS/AARMS WORKSHOP ON New Trends in Localized Patterns in PDEs

August 10, 2020 - August 14, 2020
PIMS at UBC and SFU Vancouver, British Columbia Canada + Google Map

Mathematical Theory and Applications to Physics, Biology and the Social Sciences– a Conference in Honour of the 60th Birthday of Michael J. Ward Localized spatial-temporal patterns commonly occur for various classes of linear and nonlinear diffusive processes. In particular, they occur in reaction-diffusion (RD) systems modeling quorumsensing (QS) behavior in biological systems, the initiation of root-hair tip formation in plant cells, and the spatial distribution of urban crime. Localization behavior also occurs in the biophysical context of calculating first passage…

Aiden Bruen 80th Birthday Geometry Conference

June 13, 2021 - June 18, 2021
Fields Institute, 222 College St.
Toronto, Ontario M5T 3J1 Canada
+ Google Map

This conference is in celebration of Professor Aiden Bruen's 80th birthday, to acknowledge and honour his contributions to finite geometry, design theory, coding theory, and combinatorics in general.  Professor Bruen has had a tremendous impact in these areas, publishing dozens of highly cited articles. including but certainly not limited to Inventiones Mathematicae, Journal of Combinatorial Theory, Series A, Journal of Combinatorial Designs, and Designs, Codes and Cryptography. Professor Bruen is also an author of Cryptography, Information Theory, and Error Correction:…
