Nominate a Speaker! Fall 2021 PIMS Network Wide Colloquium

  • Date: 03/24/2021

PIMS is continuing to sponsor a network-wide colloquium to take place Fall 2021.



High quality colloquia by distinguished speakers will be given on a monthly basis (likely delivered virtually) for an audience spread across the 10 PIMS member universities. We are calling for nominations for colloquium speakers. These will be evaluated by a committee based on:

  • distinction of speaker;
  • equity, diversity and inclusivity considerations;
  • breadth of topics in the series;
  • suitability for a colloquium-style lecture.


Proposals should be submitted to a member of the sub-committee (names and email addresses listed below) by April 15th. A proposal should include:

  1. Name and contact information of the proposed speaker;
  2. Affiliation;
  3. A brief biography or CV (1-2 pages) of the proposed speaker [this item can be replaced by a web link to a page providing similar information];
  4. A statement, if applicable, giving details of ways in which this nominee would contribute to PIMS' goals of promoting under-represented groups in mathematics;
  5. If possible, a statement addressing the nominee's ability to give a broadly accessible engaging talk; It is not necessary to contact the proposed speaker in advance of submitting the nomination.
