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.
