Call for Education Sessions

​The Canadian Mathematical Society (CMS) welcomes and invites education session proposals for the 2024 CMS Winter Meeting in Richmond, British Columbia, at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel from November 29 to December 2, 2024.
The education session proposals will be selected by the CMS Meeting Education Session Committee, which will also schedule the accepted sessions, in communication with the session co-organizers.

In accordance with the CMS mandate to propose conferences which are accessible and welcoming to all groups, diversity amongst organizers and speakers is strongly encouraged. To support organizers in their important work and in their efforts towards inclusivity and diversity, the CMS will host an open call for abstracts for all sessions, and asks organizers to consider all eligible abstract submissions for their session.

Diversity includes topics of interest, career stages, geographic location, and demographics; designated underrepresented groups include, but are not limited to, women, Indigenous Peoples, persons with disabilities, members of visible minority/racialized groups, and members of LGBTQ2+ communities.

Note that there will be a separate call for Scientific Sessions.

All proposed sessions should be in line with the CMS Code of Conduct.

Proposals should be submitted online, and will require the following:
  1. Names, affiliations, and contact information for all session co-organizers. Early career researchers are welcomed to propose sessions.

  2. The education session’s title, and a two to three-sentence summary that will be posted on the CMS Meeting website if your proposal is selected.

  3. A brief description of the topic and purpose of the session (1-2 paragraphs), for consideration by the CMS Education Meetings Committee, not to be posted.

  4. Indicate the number of time blocks needed. A block can be between 2 and 2.5 hours in length.

  5. A possible list of speakers with their full name and affiliation. An inclusive and diverse set of speakers is highly encouraged.

  6. The structure of your session. Traditionally, each presenter gets 20 minutes to talk, 5 minutes of Q&A, and a 5-minute buffer for transition. We are open to different formats as well, such as a panel, interactive session/workshop, 10-minute lightning talks, etc.

Proposals will be selected by the CMS Education Meetings Committee.

The CMS kindly asks session organizers to consider all eligible abstract submissions for their session, as up to 30 speakers per session can be accommodated.

All sessions will take place from November 29 to December 2, 2024.
