Call for Speakers

Call for Speakers at 2022 Summer Meeting Sessions: 

The Canadian Mathematical Society (CMS) invites you to submit an abstract to participate in one of the planned sessions at the 2022 CMS Summer Meeting. The Canadian Mathematical Society has created an open abstract submission process to support session organizers in their important work and in their efforts towards inclusivity and diversity. We encourage applications from members who identify as part of traditionally under-represented groups, including, but not limited to: Women, Indigenous Peoples, Persons with Disabilities, Members of Visible Minorities and/or Racialized Groups, and members of the LGBTQ+ Community. The CMS also welcomes applications from Graduate Students.

Applicants must submit their presentation abstract using this link. For more information, applicants should visit the meeting website, which displays a list containing an abstract for each session. This will allow all session information to be viewed before submission of an application.

Once the deadline has passed and the open call has concluded, session organizers will be able to select and invite successful candidates from the pool of abstracts received, as well as from their list of potential speakers that they had included in their proposal. The CMS encourages organizers to invite speakers from under-represented groups and graduate students who would not normally have the opportunity to present at CMS meetings. 

Upon approval of their presentation, speakers must register for the meeting in order to be able to submit their abstract to the CMS website. Please note that this year, thanks to the RBC Foundation’s generous sponsorship of our Closing the Gap initiative, we are able to offer discounted meeting registration rates to CMS members and non-members aged 15-29 who identify as part of one or more of the groups mentioned above.

The scientific sessions will take place from June 3-6, 2022. 

Speakers must submit abstracts to session organizers for approval no later than Friday, April 15, 2022.

Successful applicants must submit their abstract to the CMS by Tuesday, May 10, 2022.

Funding for CMS Member Students: 

With the support of the Memorial University, Centre de recherches mathématiques (CRM), the Fields Institute, and Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS), grants are available to fund a portion of the travel and accommodation expenses for bona fide graduate students at a Canadian or other university and CMS student members. Canadian students will be given preference. 

Applicants should ask their supervisor or departmental graduate advisor to complete the online application form here no later than April 30, 2022. 

The CMS will notify applicants of the funding decision after applications have closed. If successful, the student will receive a cheque for reimbursement of expenses after the meeting and upon completion and submission of the standard Travel Expense Claim Form, along with appropriate original receipts.
