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.



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.

Other Information: 

RegistrationRegistration for this event is now closed.


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.
