Description: 

 

Thursday May 2, is the Alberta College Mathematics
Conference. The main items discussed have to do with mathematical
education at all levels in the province of Alberta, and elsewhere.

 

Friday May 3, is the North-South Dialogue, which focuses on mathematical research.

 

Schedule:

Lectures all day on May 2 and May 3. There will be a banquet on Thursday
evening, May 2, for all participants (no charge), to be held in the
Campus Dining Centre (adjacent to the Hotel Alma). Kindly let us know if
you plan to attend the banquet, simply email Peter Zvengrowski, zvengrow@ucalgary.ca , and
write "Banquet - 1" or "Banquet-2"; (the latter if you plan to bring a
guest, in which case a banquet ticket should be purchased for the
guest). A detailed schedule will appear closer to the event.

Organizers: 

 

Manny Estabrooks; Red Deer College; Manny.Estabrooks@rdc.ab.ca 

Hassan Safouhi; Univ. of Alberta; hsafouhi@ualberta.ca;

Peter Zvengrowski; Univ. of Calgary; zvengrow@ucalgary.ca

RegistrationThere is no fee to register.  To register please click "signup" (at the bottom of this page) to create and access your account.

 

Parking:
For participants arriving by automobile parking vouchers will be
available (no cost) that will be valid in campus Lot 21 for both May 2
and May 3. Simply park in Lot 21 and go in the main entrance of the Math
Sci Bldg, on the right hand (West) side of the lot, obtain the voucher
at the desk there marked ACMC + N-S. If you would like a voucher kindly
send an email to Nancy Chibry (n.chibry@ucalgary.ca), just give your name, licence plate, and write "Voucher" (if using a rental car give the licence plate on arrival).

 

Accommodation: The most convenient is the Hotel Alma,
right on the campus. There are also several nearby hotels in the Motel Village,
including the Village Park Inn, Travel Lodge, Ramada Inn, and others.

 

 

Arrival:
The lounge of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics (MS 461)
will serve as a central meeting point throughout the meeting. Upon
arrival you can head up to the lounge to register, obtain a programme,
coffee/tea etc.

 

 

Talks: There will be
two invited (one hour) lectures on May 2 and three on May 3. In
addition, if you are interested in giving a talk at the ACMC on Thursday
please send an email to Manny Estabrooks (Manny.Estabrooks@rdc.ab.ca)
giving your name, affiliation and title of your talk. Similarly if you
would like to give a talk at the N-S on Friday May 3, send an email to
Peter Zvengrowski (zvengrow@ucalgary.ca) with
the same information. Speakers can be students, educators, faculty,
postdocs, etc. Traditionally, for the N-S, preference for giving talks
has been given to new faculty members in Alberta and new postdoctoral
fellows so they should have a chance to introduce their research
interests to mathematicians throughout the province. But anyone with
research interests is invited to speak.
