Student Social

The CMS Student Committee (Studc) invites all student participants of the 2016 CMS Winter Meeting to our Student Social:

Friday, December 2, 2016
8:15pm – Meet in Sheraton Lobby
8:30pm – Walk down to Queen Victoria Park

Studc invites all student participants at the 2016 CMS Winter Meeting to its Student Social. Studc will be leaving from the lobby of the Sheraton on the Falls hotel at 20:30 sharp to walk to Queen Victoria Park (10-15 min) where we expect to be dazzled by Canada's longest-running fireworks show at 21:00 as it erupts above Niagara Falls. Afterwards, we welcome you to join us for light refreshments at a restaurant near the Sheraton (more details to follow).

Student LaTeX Workshop

This live-typeset interactive LaTeX workshop is designed to help participants improve the quality and readability of their LaTeX-generated documents. Topics include mathematical formatting; figure layout; helpful environments and classes; referencing and indexing; and the mathtools and tikZ packages. Some familiarity with LaTeX is desirable, but none assumed; participants should have LaTeX and an editor or IDE installed prior to the workshop.

Graduate Student Travel Support

With the support of CRM, the Fields Institute, and PIMS grants are available to partially fund the travel and accommodation costs for bona fide graduate students at a Canadian or other university. Preference is given to Canadian students. To apply for this funding, applicants should ask their supervisor or departmental graduate advisor to complete the online application form no later than September 23.

Applicants will be notified late in September of the funding decision. 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.

For more information, please contact the Meeting Committee.
