1999 APICS Mathematics/Statistics Conference

Memorial University of Newfoundland

October 22-24, 1999

On the 50th anniversary of the creation of The Memorial University of Newfoundland, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics is the proud host of the 1999 APICS Mathematics/Statistics conference. Great plans for this event are already evolving and we hope that many of our colleagues from Atlantic Canada, and their students, will make a special effort to contribute to the success of this meeting. Dr. Tom Archibald of Acadia University is the 1999 Blundon Lecturer and Dr. V. Frederick Rickey of West Point will be speaking on Saturday.

As at last fall's meeting at St. Mary's University, there will be a special session where papers will be presented by students. These papers will be judged and prizes awarded. In addition, it is intended to present the APICS Award for Communication of Science and the $100 prize which goes with this honour. See the award's web site for more details. We ask our colleagues in the region to publicize this award and the student paper session and to encourage students to enter.

As always, there will be a contributed paper session as well as other sessions on special themes.  Please consider organizing one yourself!

A block of rooms, with a great rate for shared accommodation,  has already been reserved at the Quality Hotel by Journey's End in downtown St. John's.  The single rate is $74 and the double/triple/quadruple rate just $84, plus 18% taxes.  The numbers for this hotel are

To obtain these rates, reservations by individuals must be made before  September 22, 1999.  You must mention "Atlantic Provinces Council on the Sciences" when booking.

St. John's also has many charming bed and breakfasts (within a short walk of the Quality Hotel) where some people may prefer to stay. In the meantime, potential participants may wish to visit the St. John's web site.

For further information, or to express interest in organizing a special session, please send us email anytime.

We are always looking to improve our site. Please write if you have comments or suggestions.
