Jacques Guigné awarded Rayleigh Medal
The chair of the AARMS Board, Jacques Guigné was awarded the prestigious Rayleigh Medal at a recent international conference in Corfu. The medal was presented by the president of the Institute of Acoustics; it is awarded without regard to age to persons of undoubted renown for outstanding contributions to acoustics. It is normally presented to a UK acoustician in even-numbered years and an overseas acoustician in odd-numbered years. Congratulations Jacques!
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.
Cape Breton University
Mount Allison University
Saint Francis Xavier University
Saint Mary's University
Université de Moncton
University of New Brunswick
University of Prince Edward Island
