This conference is a unique and important opportunity for graduate students in mathematics and statistics to meet their peers and discover the wide range of research currently undertaken in Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest. Participants will have opportunities to build and strengthen personal and professional relationships, develop and improve communication skills, and gain valuable experience in the environment of a scientific conference. Motivated by the results of the previous PIMS YRCs, we place emphasis on improving the presentation skills of the attendees and providing information on non-academic jobs. We endeavour to assist our participants in learning how to give engaging and informative talks, which are accessible and well-suited to the audience in question.
