Jie Xiao and Xiaoqiang Zhao new Editors-in-Chief of Canadian Mathematical Bulletin
At the summer meeting in Winnipeg, the CMS Publications Committee voted unanimously to appoint Jie Xiao and Xiaoqiang Zhao, both of Memorial University, to the position of Editors-in-Chief of the Canadian Mathematical Bulletin based on their scientific achievements in their respective areas, their standing in the community, and also their relevant experience in editorial matters. Congratulations to Jie and Xiaoqiang, and it is nice to know that the Editorial Office of the CMB will be moving to Atlantic Canada.
AARMS Summer School
The thirteenth annual AARMS Summer School will be held at Dalhousie University from July 21 to August 15, 2014. The summer school is intended for graduate students and promising undergraduate students from all parts of the world. Each participant is expected to register for at least two of the four courses. Each course consists of five ninety-minute lecture sessions each week. These are graduate courses approved by Dalhousie and we will facilitate transfer credit to the extent possible. Tuition and accommodation charges are covered by AARMS, but students must find their own funds for travel expenses. The courses offered in 2014 will be:
- Gröbner Bases in Commutative Algebra
Instructor: Dr. Giulio Caviglia, Purdue University
- Homological Conjectures in Commutative Algebra
Instructor: Dr. Hailong Dao, University of Kansas
- Statistical Learning with Big Data
Instructors: Drs. Hugh Chipman, Acadia University and Xu (Sunny) Wang, St. Francis Xavier University
- Spatial Statistics
Instructor: Dr. Julie Horrocks, University of Guelph
The deadline for applications is March 15, 2014. For more information, visit the summer school webpage or contact the Summer School Directors, Dr. Sara Faridi (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Hong Gu (email@example.com).
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
Mount Saint Vincent University
Saint Francis Xavier University
Saint Mary's University
