What is the PIMS YRC?


The PIMS Young Researchers Conference in Mathematics and Statistics (PIMS YRC) is an annual event that provides a unique forum for young mathematicians across Canada to present their research and to collaborate with their peers.


All young academics involved in research in the mathematical sciences are invited to give a scientific talk describing their work and to attend talks on a host of current research topics in mathematics and statistics. Participants will have the opportunity to build and strengthen lasting personal and professional relationships, to develop and improve their communication skills, and to gain valuable experience in the environment of a scientific conference.


Since its inception in 2004 by graduate students at the University of Alberta, the PIMS YRC had previously been held at the University of Alberta and the University of Calgary. The conference has become a well-recognised and popular event and in 2011 the PIMS YRC boasted 100 registered students when it was held at the University of British Columbia. The PIMS YRC will continue to gain momentum, respect and popularity among young researchers in mathematics and statistics.


Who's invited?


All graduate students, senior undergraduate students, and post-doctoral fellows studying mathematics and statistics at a Canadian or PIMS university are invited to participate in this conference. Students from PIMS universities will be strongly encouraged to attend and present at this conference.
