We invite abstract submissions from undergraduate students of Atlantic Canadian universities for oral presentations. We encourage submissions from all areas of mathematics, statistics, and computer science. Accepted abstracts will be presented at MSCS
2020 and published in the proceedings of Science Atlantic MSCS 2020 conference which will be made online. MSCS represents an excellent platform for the students to develop their presentation skills and to get valuable feedback from
several professors from Atlantic universities. Each student talk (abstract) should be registered by a faculty member or SA representative (or designate) of the respective university via email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The body of the email should contain the following.
- Name and email of student (presenter)
- University name
- Field: Math, Stats or CS
- Title and abstract of talk (in TeX or plain text)
- Name of supervisor if applicable
- Name of the collaborators, if any
We are now accepting the abstracts. The deadline for abstract submissions is Thursday, October 22nd, 2020, 11:59 PM ADT.
: We have very little idea how many papers will be contributed. On the one hand, difficult conditions over the summer and uncertainty about the conference may reduce numbers drastically. On the other hand,
time commitment will be less. Should it appear that there's empty space in the program, we may decide to add variety by including short (15 minute) papers by faculty, graduate students, etc.
Such talks must be pitched to an
undergraduate audience - research announcements will usually not be appropriate. Think "undergraduate colloquium" rather than "research seminar." Think "fun" and "stimulating curiosity" rather than "impressive." No prizes will be awarded
for these talks! They will not be scheduled in parallel with undergraduate talks, and there will be a limit on the number of such talks. Please indicate interest if you would like to give such a paper. We will let you know by Friday,
Oct. 23, whether we can accept your offer. (Remember, it is only fifteen minutes, and it does not have to be novel.)
