2017 PIMS Young Researchers Conference in Mathematics and Statistics

  • Start Date: 06/05/2017
  • End Date: 06/08/2017

University of Saskatchewan


This conference is the largest annual graduate student event in mathematics and statistics in Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest. It is an excellent occasion for graduate students and other aspiring young researchers to meet and connect for a few days and exchange their research ideas.  All participants are invited to present their current research or another subject that is of interest to a general audience of mathematicians and statisticians.

The student presentations are an excellent way to improve presentation skills and to get an overview of the broad diversity of subjects studied by your fellow students.



This year we have increased the length of the student talks to 40 minutes, and presenters are encouraged to use the additional time to motivate their subjects for non-experts in the field. In addition to the student talks, we are excited to host plenary lectures by amazing researchers at the forefront of research in their respective fields.

We continue the tradition of offering workshops aimed at the improvement of our participants' professional skills. This year's topics are networking and academic writing skills. In addition, we will be hosting a panel discussion on employability after a graduate degree in mathematics or statistics with professors of the University of Saskatchewan and representatives from industry.
