Description: 

The Alberta Mathematics Dialogue (AMD) emerged naturally from the Alberta Colleges Mathematics Conference (ACMC) and the North-South Dialogue (NSD). The first North-South Dialogue took place eighteen years ago, and 2019 will be the sixth Alberta Mathematics Dialogue. The conference aims to provide a forum for people with a passion in mathematics and statistics to share their teaching and research knowledge and expertise. Over the years, the conference has captured the interest of professors, instructors, students, postdocs, high school teachers, members from Alberta Education, and other individuals passionate about mathematical research and education. The conference will offer plenary talks from experts in fields of mathematics, statistics, pedagogy and curriculum. Research and Teaching & Learning sessions and workshops will also be organized.
