On behalf of Carleton University, the School of Mathematics and Statistics invites the mathematical community to the CMS Winter Meeting 2008. The program will include eleven plenary, prize and public lectures, and a wide variety of sessions, including a Contributed Paper session.

All scientific talks and social activities will take place at the Ottawa Marriott Hotel, located at 100 Kent Street, Ottawa.

We will celebrate Graham Wright's 30 years of dedicated service to the CMS on December 6, following the banquet, in a room that overlooks Ottawa (great view) on the 27th floor of the Marriott Hotel. We hope you will come and that you will consider making a donation to the CMS in Graham's honor at the event. Cash Bar. (Since Graham will not be retiring until sometime in 2009, the Roast event has been postponed.)

The CMS Committee for Women in Mathematics is organizing the 4th workshop of Connecting Women in Mathematics Across Canada (CWiMAC 2008). The purpose of the CWiMAC workshops is to support the career development of junior female academics in the Canadian mathematics community. CWiMAC 2008 will take place at the University of Ottawa on December 4 and 5, 2008.
