Student Research Presentations
The Canadian Mathematical Society Student Committee (CMS Studc) invite students (undergraduate and graduate) to present a talk on a topic of their choice on December 7th at the Student Research Presentations Session during the 2015 CMS Winter Meeting in Montreal, QC.

These presentations should introduce the student’s research to a general mathematical audience. If requested by the presenter, an experienced mentor will be available to provide feedback on the talk.

Any questions about the student sessions should be directed to the student session organizers, Svenja Huntemann and Muhammad Khan, at studc-winter15-sessions@cms.math.ca

To register for the session, contact the organizers of the session with a draft abstract by September 25th. Notice of acceptance will be given by September 28th. Abstracts submitted after this deadline will be considered if space remains.
