ABOUT THE CYRC

The CYRC is a unique and important opportunity for young mathematicians and
statisticians across Canada to collaborate and present their research to their
peers. All young academics involved in research in the mathematical and
statistical sciences are invited to the University of Alberta in May 2010 to
participate in scientific sessions on a variety of research topics in
mathematics and statistics. 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.


PLENARY SPEAKERS

We are very pleased and excited to announce that John McKay of Concordia
University (inventor of the field of mathematics known as "monstrous
moonshine") and Jon Jacobsen from Harvey Mudd College in California (a
well-respected former visitor to the U of A and expert in partial differential
equations) have agreed to be our plenary speakers for CYRC 2010. These two
distinguished mathematicians were selected by students at the U of A based on
their tradition of giving excellent talks, and will speak on topics of
relevance to all young mathematicians and statisticians.


The deadline for registration and submission of abstracts is May 1st.
Registration, campus accommodations, and all meals are provided free of
charge. Shuttles to and from the airport will be made available upon request.


Please contact Cody Holder ( holder@math.ualberta.ca ) with any questions or
concerns about the conference.
